And He said, "A man had two sons. The younger of them said to his father, 'Father, give me the share of the estate that falls to me.' So he divided his wealth between them. And not many days later, the younger son gathered everything together and went on a journey into a distant country, and there he squandered his estate with loose living. Now when he had spent everything, a severe famine occurred in that country, and he began to be impoverished. So he went and hired himself out to one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would have gladly filled his stomach with the pods that the swine were eating, and no one was giving anything to him. But when he came to his senses, he said, 'How many of my father's hired men have more than enough bread, but I am dying here with hunger! I will get up and go to my father, and will say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me as one of your hired men."' So he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. And the son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.' But the father said to his slaves, 'Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet; and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and celebrate; for this son of mine was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found.' And they began to celebrate. Now his older son was in the field, and when he came and approached the house, he heard music and dancing. And he summoned one of the servants and began inquiring what these things could be. And he said to him, 'Your brother has come, and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has received him back safe and sound.' But he became angry and was not willing to go in; and his father came out and began pleading with him. But he answered and said to his father, 'Look! For so many years I have been serving you and I have never neglected a command of yours; and yet you have never given me a young goat, so that I might celebrate with my friends; but when this son of yours came, who has devoured your wealth with prostitutes, you killed the fattened calf for him.' And he said to him, 'Son, you have always been with me, and all that is mine is yours. But we had to celebrate and rejoice, for this brother of yours was dead and has begun to live, and was lost and has been found.'" Luke 15:11-32
Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place—unless you repent. Yet this you do have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God.
If you have gone astray from God And His Son Jesus and would like to be reconciled to the Lord, confess your sins repent and seek the Lord and learn what is pleasing to the Lord Jesus .
Eph 5:10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
Start reading the word of God and Jesus will help you change.
(Php 4:13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.)
Confess Jesus as Lord.
For Moses writes that the man who practices the righteousness which is based on law shall live by that righteousness. But the righteousness based on faith speaks as follows: "DO NOT SAY IN YOUR HEART, 'WHO WILL ASCEND INTO HEAVEN?' (that is, to bring Christ down), or 'WHO WILL DESCEND INTO THE ABYSS?' (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead)." But what does it say? "THE WORD IS NEAR YOU, IN YOUR MOUTH AND IN YOUR HEART"—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, "WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED." For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED." Rom 10:5-13
Mat 10:32 "Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven.
Mat 10:33 "But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 10:32-33
Luk 12:8 "And I say to you, everyone who confesses Me before men, the Son of Man will confess him also before the angels of God;
Luk 12:9 but he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God. Luke 12:8-9
We are a work in progress.
Php 1:6 For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
"YOU DID NOT CHOOSE ME BUT I CHOSE YOU, AND APPOINTED YOU THAT YOU WOULD GO AND BEAR FRUIT, AND THAT YOUR FRUIT WOULD REMAIN, SO THAT WHATEVER YOU ASK OF THE FATHER IN MY NAME HE MAY GIVE TO YOU. "THIS I COMMAND YOU, THAT YOU LOVE ONE ANOTHER. "IF THE WORLD HATES YOU, YOU KNOW THAT IT HAS HATED ME BEFORE IT HATED YOU. "IF YOU WERE OF THE WORLD, THE WORLD WOULD LOVE ITS OWN; BUT BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT OF THE WORLD, BUT I CHOSE YOU OUT OF THE WORLD, BECAUSE OF THIS THE WORLD HATES YOU. "REMEMBER THE WORD THAT I SAID TO YOU, 'A SLAVE IS NOT GREATER THAN HIS MASTER.' IF THEY PERSECUTED ME, THEY WILL ALSO PERSECUTE YOU; IF THEY KEPT MY WORD, THEY WILL KEEP YOURS ALSO. "BUT ALL THESE THINGS THEY WILL DO TO YOU FOR MY NAME'S SAKE, BECAUSE THEY DO NOT KNOW THE ONE WHO SENT ME. "IF I HAD NOT COME AND SPOKEN TO THEM, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE SIN, BUT NOW THEY HAVE NO EXCUSE FOR THEIR SIN. "HE WHO HATES ME HATES MY FATHER ALSO. "IF I HAD NOT DONE AMONG THEM THE WORKS WHICH NO ONE ELSE DID, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE SIN; BUT NOW THEY HAVE BOTH SEEN AND HATED ME AND MY FATHER AS WELL. "BUT THEY HAVE DONE THIS TO FULFILL THE WORD THAT IS WRITTEN IN THEIR LAW, 'THEY HATED ME WITHOUT A CAUSE.' "WHEN THE HELPER COMES, WHOM I WILL SEND TO YOU FROM THE FATHER, THAT IS THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH WHO PROCEEDS FROM THE FATHER, HE WILL TESTIFY ABOUT ME, AND YOU WILL TESTIFY ALSO, BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN WITH ME FROM THE BEGINNING. JOHN 15:16-27
We are told in (Romans 3:23, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,) I have sinned and you have sinned and because we have sinned we must have the blood of Jesus Christ to cleanse us from all sin. Our morality cannot save us, our goodness cannot save us, because no one is good except God alone. We are not saved by good works. Isaiah 64:6 For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. WE MUST CONFESS OUR SIN, (If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9) (but He whom God raised did not undergo decay. "Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses. Acts 13:37-39) God loves you, (We are told in Romans 5:8-11 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.) But God demonstrates His love for us in this that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. And God has made it possible through the gift of His Son for you to be saved that is God’s gift, We are told in (Romans 6:23, For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.) (We are told in Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.) There must be repentance of sins you must confess your sin, and turn away from sin and return to the Lord. (Now after John had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel." Mark 1:14-15) you need to believe in Jesus the Son of God and confess Jesus as Lord. (that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. Romans 10:9-10) (for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED." Romans 10:13) There is only one name by which we must be saved and that’s by the name of Jesus Christ. (let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead--by this name this man stands here before you in good health. "He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by you, THE BUILDERS, but WHICH BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone. "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:10-12) (for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED." Romans 10:13) We find forgiveness through God’s Son Jesus that’s why Jesus died on the cross so we can be forgiven through Him, then He was raised on the third day, ascended into heaven, and is enthroned at the right hand of God, where He intercedes for us. Sin separates us from God but we are reconciled to God through His Son Jesus Christ. (and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls. 1 Peter 2:24-25)
If you want Jesus to be your Lord and Savior pray this prayer:
God I recognize I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. I need you in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, and then He was raised on the third day, and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Lord Jesus Christ, I confess that I am a sinner. I ask you to forgive me of my sins, and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Come into my heart today, and be the Lord of my life. I will serve You, I will obey You, I will read Your word, and I will follow You Jesus Christ from this day forward all the days of my life. Jesus I ask You please be my Lord, my Savior, and my King and I am Your servant I ask these things in Jesus name, Amen.
In that prayer you have stepped from darkness into life. You have identified with the family of the Lord Jesus Christ. Now you need to get baptized in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. You need a Bible. Jesus says in Matthew 4:4, But He answered and said, "It is written, 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'" If you have prayed that prayer congratulations on your new life in Jesus Christ. May God bless you.
You need to tell people that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
"Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. "But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.
You need a Bible. Jesus says in Matthew 4:4,
But He answered and said, "It is written, 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'"
