When we asked him if he would like to give his life to Jesus, he said, "Yes." He invited Jesus into his heart, asked Jesus to be his Lord and Savior, and then confessed his sins to Jesus. We then led him in asking for and accepting Jesus' forgiveness of all his sins. When we showed him If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9) and explained to him that he was now clean, he started laughing with joy and said, "I have never felt like this before."
