Is there a sinner's prayer in the New Testament?
We will start with the first example in Acts, chapter 2. The 3,000 had already believed because they asked, "What shall we do"? In verse 38 Peter says "repent and be baptized every one of you" and verse 40, with many other words said, "Save yourselves from this untoward generation!"
The second example is in Acts 8 where Philip went preaching to the Samaritans in verse 5 and read 12 where both men and women believed and were baptized, no sinners prayer there.
The third example is Simon in verse 13 where he believed and was baptized and he continued with Philip as the miracles fascinated him. The miracles were to confirm the word, Mark 16:20 The fourth example, the Ethiopian eunuch in verses 26-40. He believed and confessed Jesus to be the Christ and was baptized.
The fifth is Cornelius, the first Gentile to be saved. Read chapters 10 and 11 as the apostles were to go to the Jews first and now Peter is sent to the first Gentile, very, very interesting as Cornelius was a very good man, Chapter 10:2, but was not saved! When Peter came in verse 25, Cornelius fell down at Peter's feet to worship him, Peter said, "Stand up, I myself also am a man." This shows Peter was not a pope. In verse 48, Peter commanded them to be baptized, the whole household, not babies, as they cannot believe, plus baptism is immersion, a burial in water.
The sixth is Lydia, in chapter 16; she and her household were baptized in verse 15.
The seventh is the jailer, he believed, repented, as he washed their stripes and was baptized, verse 33.
The eighth, the Corinthians, believed and were baptized in 18:8.
The ninth, the Ephesians in Chapter 19 were baptized again, showing how very important it is to be baptized in "the name of the Lord Jesus.
The tenth example was Saul of Tarsus. His conversion is told in two places, Chapters 9 and 22. Notice he was not saved on the road to Damascus where Jesus told him, "Go into the city and it shall be told what thou must do." Paul prayed for 3 days and Ananias told him, "Why tarriest thou, arise and be baptized and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord." These are all in the book of Acts.
It is plain we are to believe, repent, confess Jesus as the Christ and be baptized which puts us into Christ, His body, the church. Read Galatians 3:27, where we are born again, Romans 6.
Are there miracles today? Next time!
