Why would you feel ashamed?

You confess yourself guilty before Him and ask Him to save you from and forgive you of your sins.

After you have done that we can help with the living for Christ part.

I John 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

 

Start by confessing your sins, ask forgiveness and for Him to guide your steps as you learn to follow Him.  :)

As wingnut and Yowm have both said: confess your sins to Him and ask His forgiveness.

Just go to Him, and talk to Him; you don't need fancy words, He'll understand you just fine. He's not out to hurt you or punish you...believe me. I was scared of that until He showed me how gentle He really is.

Once you have confessed your sins, asked for forgiveness, and asked Him to help you live for Him from now on, make sure you pray and read the Bible daily. Commit it to your heart and mind each day. You will slowly but surely learn more and more of God's will and direction that way. Really study it; don't just read but study commentary on it from great teachers and pastors to really open up the meaning of the verses so you can understand how to apply it to your life.

You are asking two different things with one question: how to receive Jesus as Savior and how to live successfully as a born again Christian.

1) Trust Jesus. Trust in the horrible death He suffered on the cross for our imperfection, our sin, guilt and shame. He died then rose again forever, so you can talk to Him now and He hears. Receive His gift of eternal life.

2) Daily read the scriptures, asking each day for God to show you things to do and see to grow as a Christian, from the Bible. Start with John's gospel, the fourth book of the New Testament. Ask Jesus to guide your reading and understanding, then read one chapter. See what in the chapter is there for you to try to do today, to obey.

Keep asking questions. Many at this forum want to help!

Amen, your shame is God's revealing upon your very being. Its not going to be about how but what do you believe? He's already called you here to the foot of the cross. Ask any questions you like?

Hi Jason!

We trust Jesus for salvation, since on His cross, He took our sin, guilt and shame, all of it, the imperfections we call sin.

No one including me, a Christian for many years, can live in a utopia, where only perfect moral people live, without ruining it. I'd hurt your feelings in about ten minutes in Heaven being me. When you trust Jesus Christ today for salvation, you will know that in the future, when the moment comes for judgment, you will be transformed to moral perfection, so you also will be fit for Heaven, saved.

And trusting Him for salvation will alleviate much or all of the shame you feel!

Believe Jesus ( His teachings)  and trust that the atonement He secured for the forgivness of your sins does indeed gift you forgivness for all your sins..

God knows what we believe.. God knowns in whom we trust..
