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.

  • 11 In truth I tell you that we speak of what we know, and state what we have seen; and yet you do not accept our statements.
  • 12 If, when I tell you earthly things, you do not believe me, how will you believe me when I tell you of heavenly things?
  • 13 No one has ascended to heaven, except him who descended from heaven – the Son of Man himself.
  • 14 And, as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up;
  • 15 so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”
  • 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.
  • 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but so that the world might be saved through him.
  • 18 The person who believes in him escapes condemnation, while the person who does not believe in him is already condemned, because they have not believed in the only Son of God.
  • 19 The ground of their condemnation is this, that though the light has come into the world, people preferred the darkness to the light, because their actions were wicked.
  • 20 For the person who lives an evil life hates the light, and will not come to it, fearing that their actions will be exposed;

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.
