Biblical Counseling Manual
( John 1:12 ; John 5:24 ; Rom. 10:9-10 ) To receive Christ is to receive power to
become a child of God. The power to pass from death to life comes by confessing with
your mouth that Jesus is the Lord of your life: that Jesus lived on this earth; that he died
on the cross to pay the penalty for your sins; that He rose from the dead to give you
eternal life. To receive this, to confess this, one commits himself to live totally for the
Lord Jesus Christ.
