Are you a Christ Follower?
How do I become a Christian?
What do you get up for in the morning? What are you looking for in life? How will you handle the really tough times? Hard questions don't have easy answers, but they do have an answer. That answer is ultimately found in the God who created the universe and loves you unconditionally. How do you find that God? How do you reach Him? This is the Good News: God has come looking for you! He has reached out to you!
Saying "Yes" to God begins with your desire to respond to His gracious Gift of Jesus Christ. Here are some ways to help you do just that. Discover for yourself life the way it was meant to be. Receive God's Gift today! Admit that you need a right relationship with God.
Pride keeps us from doing some of the most important things in life. Don't let your pride keep you from THE most important thing in this life and the next!
The Bible says:
There is no one who always does what is right, not even one ... Romans 3:10. All have sinned and are not good enough for God's glory, ... Romans 3:23.
Believe that God's Son Jesus Christ makes possible your having a right relationship with God. There is nothing that you can do, no matter how good or great, to ever restore your relationship with God. God was using Christ to restore his relationship with humanity.
2 Corinthians 5:19
Confess your sin to God and accept His forgiveness. Everyone of us have chosen to live our lives like we want to, taking charge, ignoring God, pleasing ourselves. That's what separates us from God. That's why we need His forgiveness. You can have forgiveness of your sins through Jesus.
Dedicate yourself as a fully devoted follower of Christ. Receiving God's gift of forgiveness through Jesus Christ will set you in a direction exactly opposite of the one you've been going in because now you're following Christ.
Jesus said to all of them, "If people want to follow me, they must give up the things they want. They must be willing to give up their lives daily to follow me." Luke 9:23
Express your faith in Christ publicly. What God does for you in His Son Jesus Christ is the greatest thing that will ever happen to you. It requires a clear confession that you have given Him your very life.
If you use your mouth to say, "Jesus is Lord," and if you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
