Becoming a Christian is the most important decision anyone can ever make. What does the Bible say about becoming a Christian?
“This is love: Not that we loved God, but that He loved us.”
Sin is not doing what God wants you to do. You sin when you disobey God. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3:23
Jesus died on the cross for your sin. He was buried and He rose from the dead. “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
ADMIT- Admit that you need God. Have you come to the place where you see that this life has to be about something bigger than you? Do you recognize that even at your best, you would never be good enough to meet God? The Bible tells us that our sin separates us from God. Romans 3:23 tells us that "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." We all have a need that only God can fill.
Repent and turn away from your sin. (Acts 3:19, I John 1:9)
BELIEVE- Believe that Jesus can fill that need. God knew that we could never reach Him on our own so He sent His Son, Jesus, to die in our place so that we could be with Him. Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and no man comes to the Father but by Me." (John 14:6). Jesus is the only One that can fill the need that you have.Believethat Jesus is God’s Son and accept God’s gift of forgiveness from sin. (Romans 5:8; Acts 4:12; Acts 16:31; John 3:16; I Peter 3:18)
CONFESS – Confess that you need Jesus. Romans 10:9 says that if we will “confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” When you make this confession to God, He makes the exchange for you. You literally exchange death (a life without God) for life (life with God here and in eternity)! (Romans 10:9-10, 13; Matthew 16:24; Luke 9:23)
“Dear God, I need you and I cannot do it without you. I admit that I am lacking, unworthy of a relationship with You, and I have missed the mark in my life. I believe that you sent Your Son Jusus to die in my place so that I could have a relationship with You. I believe that You raised Him from the dead to prove that You are God. Come into my heart, Jesus, and be my personal Lord and Savior. Father, thank you for loving me enough to send Your only Son for me. In Jesus name, Amen.”
