Sure! If you believe with all your heart (having faith) that Jesus died for you, and if you trust him to take care of your sin payment forever, he will forgive your sins and help you live in a way that pleases God right now. To ask Jesus to forgive your sins and come into your life, you can tell him in words like these (called a prayer):

“Dear God, I am sorry for all of the bad things that I have done. I do believe that Jesus died for me, and I want you to forgive my sins and help me to live the way that you want me to. I want to learn to please you with my life now and live with you in Heaven forever someday.”
