So if you are not clear of what the gift is, it is that in the most basic sense you have received forgiveness of your sins and been granted eternal life! Now you must accept the gift. So how do you accept the gift? Ask God to forgive you of your sins. Then repent. What does that mean, well to repent is to turn from, and you must turn from you sins and stop doing them, you cannot do this on your own, but God will provide the Holy Spirit who will give you the strength to change. Next you must trust in Jesus as your one and only savior, trust in Him as you would trust in a parachute if you were jumping out of a plane. Once you have done this God will grant you eternal life! Turn your life over to God and His will not yours, study your Bible daily, pray, and find a good Bible teaching church.
