We live in a fallen world. All one needs to do is turn on a news program or even an entertainment program and it is easy to see that something is not right in this world.
Fortunately, there is a solution. The God and Creator of everything loves you and every other person in this world. He loves you enough that He took on human form in the person of Jesus Christ and died to pay the price for you to be brought into the relationship with Him that you were made to have and resurrected three days later as proof that the work was truly done.
We are all sinners and have all fallen short of the glory of God. The simple fact that we do not have relationship with our Creator is proof of this. The sin debt has to be paid, and it is up to each of us to accept the payment that Jesus made on the cross, or to pay ourselves at the final judgment.
If you are ready to begin your walk with Him, and experience the reality of His presence in your life, simply ask Jesus to forgive you of your sin, come into your heart, and be your Lord and Savior. There are no magic words for this. God knows our hearts and He knows the honesty of your request when you call on Him.
If you have made this decision, recognize that this is merely the first step. Jesus said we would know His followers by their fruit, and to grow in the faith you will need the help of those more experienced than yourself. Find a church that presents Christ crucified and resurrected honestly, truthfully, and completely, and be with your brothers and sisters as you help each other on your way. We would love for you to come here, but you do need to find a group of believers somewhere that you can call family.
