What does it mean to put your faith in Jesus?

 “Faith in Jesus” means  trusting  in Jesus as Savior. Romans 3 says that “righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe...all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” When we place our faith in Jesus, we believe in Him, and God grants His righteousness to us. What does that mean? Simply: He makes us right with him. He forgives us, and welcomes us into an awesome relationship with him for an eternity!

When a person has faith in Jesus, it means that they believe who Jesus is (God in human form) and trust what Jesus has done (died and resurrected). This faith in who Jesus is and what he's done for you is what saves (see Romans 10:9–10; 1 Corinthians 15:3–4). “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God” (1 John 5:1).

John 3:16 says, “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” The key is belief, in response to God’s love. Anyone who places their faith in Jesus has the promise of eternal life!

Without faith in Jesus, we remain in sin and cannot be accepted into God’s presence in His perfect heaven. With faith in Jesus, we are given access to God as His own children (John 1:12).

To have faith in Jesus is to reject all other ways of salvation. We cannot trust in Jesus and anything else. We trust in Jesus alone. “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Salvation is exclusive. Jesus is the only way (John 14:6).

Are you ready to place your faith in Jesus? Do you trust Him to save you?  God sees you where you are, he knows your heart, and he loves to hear from you! You can respond to his call to save you right now with a simple prayer like this:

“Dear God, I realize I am a sinner and could never reach heaven by my own good deeds. Right now I place my faith in Jesus Christ as God’s Son who died and rose again to give me eternal life. I trust in Jesus alone. Please forgive me of my sins and help me to live for you. Thank you for accepting me and giving me eternal life.”
