Understanding that I am a sinner and in need of a Savior. The bible says in Roman 3:23 “for all have sinned and sfall short of the glory of God”. Also in Romans 6:23 “for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord”
Before Christ I was confused, lost, hurt and life without purpose or direction.
How you received Christ is by the leading of the Holy Spirit calling upon your life.
