John Chapter 16 : 1-10 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 1 "These things have I spoken to you, so that you wouldn't be caused to stumble.
  • 2 They will put you out of the synagogues. Yes, the time comes that whoever kills you will think that he offers service to God.
  • 3 They will do these things because they have not known the Father, nor me.
  • 4 But I have told you these things, so that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you about them. I didn't tell you these things from the beginning, because I was with you.
  • 5 But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, 'Where are you going?'
  • 6 But because I have told you these things, sorrow has filled your heart.
  • 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I don't go away, the Counselor won't come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.
  • 8 When he has come, he will convict the world about sin, about righteousness, and about judgment;
  • 9 about sin, because they don't believe in me;
  • 10 about righteousness, because I am going to my Father, and you won't see me any more;

  • 1 “I have spoken to you in this way so that you may not falter.
  • 2 They will expel you from their synagogues; indeed the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think that they are making an offering to God.
  • 3 They will do this, because they have not learned to know the Father, or even me.
  • 4 But I have spoken to you of these things so that, when the time for them comes, you may remember that I told you about them myself.
  • 5 I did not tell you all this at first, because I was with you. But now I am to return to him who sent me; and yet not one of you asks me – ‘Where are you going?’
  • 6 Although your hearts are full of sorrow at all that I have been saying to you.
  • 7 Yet I am only telling you the truth; it is for your good that I should go away. For otherwise the helper will never come to you, but, if I leave you, I will send him to you.
  • 8 And he, when he comes, will bring conviction to the world as to sin, and as to righteousness, and as to judgment;
  • 9 as to sin, for people do not believe in me;
  • 10 as to righteousness, for I am going to the Father, and you will see me no longer;

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obiendience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
