Re: Am I Saved, and What to do Next...?
It's not about a "sinner's prayer". The miracle is NOT in the prayer! The miracle is in believing that Jesus is real, that what He did for you is real, and to let Him reconnect you to Father God. Sin separates us from God. Jesus died and was raised from the dead to bring us back to the Father and wipe the sin out of our lives. So that now we can live our life with God together as His children, with His guidance and by His standards. That is what works, the acknowledgement that Jesus is real and alive and well, and accept His rightful lordship and authority.
If that's what you believe and what you have done, then welcome to the family. Find people who believe like the Bible says to, who live according to the rules Jesus gave us (to love God, and to love ourselves and other people) and who accept the Bible as God's Word and submit to its authority and who let God have the final say-so in their lives.
It's really not that complicated.
If you're unsure about what church to go to, then ask God for guidance and trust Him to lead you to the right one for you, to that group of people who shares your belief in the Lord and who live according to how He tells us to.
Even so, come Lord Jesus!
