John Chapter 3 : 11-20 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 11 Most certainly I tell you, we speak that which we know, and testify of that which we have seen, and you don't receive our witness.
  • 12 If I told you earthly things and you don't believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?
  • 13 No one has ascended into heaven, but he who descended out of heaven, the Son of Man, who is in heaven.
  • 14 As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
  • 15 that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
  • 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
  • 17 For God didn't send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through him.
  • 18 He who believes in him is not judged. He who doesn't believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.
  • 19 This is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil.
  • 20 For everyone who does evil hates the light, and doesn't come to the light, lest his works would be exposed.
  • American Standard Version [ASV]
  • 11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that which we know, and bear witness of that which we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
  • 12 If I told you earthly things and ye believe not, how shall ye believe if I tell you heavenly things?
  • 13 And no one hath ascended into heaven, but he that descended out of heaven, [even] the Son of man, who is in heaven.
  • 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up;
  • 15 that whosoever believeth may in him have eternal life.
  • 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.
  • 17 For God sent not the Son into the world to judge the world; but that the world should be saved through him.
  • 18 He that believeth on him is not judged: he that believeth not hath been judged already, because he hath not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God.
  • 19 And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil.
  • 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, and cometh not to the light, lest his works should be reproved.

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, obedience, 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.
