How Do We put our Trust in God’s Son?
Because of what Jesus Christ accomplished for us on the cross, the Bible states “He that has the Son has life.” We can follow the Son, Jesus Christ, as our Savior by personal faith, by trusting in the person of Christ and His death for our sins. By God's grace and through faith in His Son, Jesus, we can have new life and be set free from the penalty of the law, sin, and death.
John 1:12 But to all who have received him--those who believe in his name--he has given the right to become God's children
John 3:16-18 For this is the way God loved the world: he gave his one and only Son that everyone who believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world should be saved through him. The one who believes in Him is not condemned. The one who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.
This means we must each come to God the same way:
(1) As a sinner who recognizes his sin
(2) Understand that no human works can result in salvation
(3) Trust on Christ alone by faith alone for our salvation.
If you would like to follow Jesus Christ with your life and trust Christ as your personal Savior, you may want to express your faith in Christ by a prayer to God acknowledging your sinfulness, accepting His forgiveness and putting your faith in Christ for your salvation.
