Kriss Akabusi Finds a Bible
At the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh 1986 Kriss found a Good News New Testament Bible in his room. He read it from cover to cover during the Games. In his own words 'Of course I had heard about Jesus before, but I had never realised that he had walked on the Earth or that he had done so many amazing things, or that He had promised eternal life to anyone who believed in Him.
When I realised all these things about Him I just knew I had a decision to make. I started investigating to find out if it was true, what He had said. A few months later I made a decision to give my life to Jesus Christ, something I have never regretted.
You too can start a new
life, by following these 4 steps
2. Recognise who Jesus is and what he has done as our substitute.
3. Repent by turning to God, from sin, and seeking forgiveness.
4. Receive Jesus Christ by faith as Saviour and Lord, by committing your life to Him.
Here is a short prayer you could use:
I must admit, there have been many times in my life when I know I have said and done things that were wrong.
Please forgive me. It comes as a great relief that although I can't wipe out the past, you can.
I take this opportunity of receiving your forgiveness and believe that the price for this was paid for by your only Son, Christ and that His death on a cross was for me. The Son of God in my place.
I don't understand how it alls works, but I now put my trust in you for my future. Please help me to know you better, and give me the strength of your Spirit to help me to live differently from now on.
Thank You for listening and answering this prayer.
