“Whoever is a believer in Christ is a new creation. The old way of living has disappeared. A new way of living has come into existence.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 (God’s Word Translation)
“And you, that were in another time alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now he has reconciled you in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblamable and unreproveable in his sight.” Colossians 1:21-22 (Jubilee Bible 2000)
“As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our iniquities from us.” Psalm 103:12 (Douay-Rheims Bible”
If you prayed that prayer or one like it and meant it in your heart, you are now a child of God. He has completely and forever washed away all of your sins…past, present, and future…and covered you under His blood forever. There is nothing you can do now that will ever separate you from the love of Jesus. You are forever forgiven!
Now, the devil will try to convince you that what you just did was not real. He will try to attack your mind and make you believe that you are not saved and that your prayer was a waste of time. He may try to tell you that you were supposed to feel a certain way to “prove” that you are a Christian. He will begin a battle in your mind over your salvation because he does not want you to begin your relationship with God because it scares him. When that happens, do not give in to those doubts, but believe on the promises of salvation. If you prayed a prayer of repentance and really meant it in your heart, you have received salvation through Jesus Christ!
