First, you must accept the fact you are a sinner.
Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Rom 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
No one has ever lived up to God's perfect standard.
Ps 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Second, you must realize that as a sinner, you are in violation of God's law and will for your life for which God must render Holy judgement and Holy justice.
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin [is) death; but the gift of God [is) eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Re 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Re 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the hook of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Third, you must believe that Jesus has already paid your sin debt.
Rom 5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Heb 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
God is satisfied with Jesus' death as payment for the penalty of sin for all who will believe in Him as their Redeemer.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
2Co 5:21 For he bath made him [to be) sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Truly, Jesus has paid the price for sin.
Fourth, you must repent towards God and by faith trust in Jesus' work on the cross to have your sins forgiven and receive this gift of life.
Mk 6:12 And they went out. and preached that men should repent.
Lu 13:3 I tell you except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Ac 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent:
Ac 11:18 Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.
Ac 20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
It is God's will for all mankind to return to Him. Because of His Holy love He has made a way for everyone to come to Him, be washed from their sin and be received into fellowship with Him. The way is through repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ.
You become aware of the absence of God in your life when the light of Jesus comes to you through His Holy Word and Holy Spirit revealing to you what is lacking, or missing. Many times one may feel an emptiness or void inside their soul. The emptiness can only be filled by God because He created you that he might live within you. Therefore it is God who awakens you to the reality of sin and death. In fact, without God, you cannot even approach Him.
John 6:44,45 No man can come to me, except the Father which bath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
I Co 12:3 . [that] no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
It is God's will for you to be saved. But you must seek Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength; your whole being. You must surrender your whole life to Jesus Christ, submitting yourself totally to Him as your Lord And Christ. Will you begin now? Start by praying, asking God to forgive you of your sins in Jesus name. If you want someone to pray with you and help you, tell your desire to God and He will send one to you just as He did Peter to Cornileus.
Acts 10:4 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, what is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God. 5 And now send men to Joppa, and call for [one] Simon, whose surname is Peter: 6 He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.
