How do I become a Christian – a follower of Jesus Christ?
To become a Christian:
1. You need to understand your need
Let’s be honest, none of us does the right thing all the time. The Bible confirms this. It says, “There is no one who always does what is right, not even one.” Romans 3:10 The Bible calls it sin when we don’t do what is right.
What is sin? Sin is anything that is not like God’s perfect nature. God is love so anything that is not done or said in love is sin. God is truth, so that anything that is not completely truthful is sin. We sin by things we do, choices we make, attitudes we show, and thoughts we entertain. For you to be a follower of Jesus Christ you have to get rid of your sin problem. For our sin separates us from God leaving us spiritually empty.
2. Understand that God has a plan and it’s free.
God desires for you to be right with him, but you cannot obtain it through your own efforts. “God makes people right with himself through their faith in Jesus Christ. This is true for all who believe in Christ, because all people are the same: All have sinned and are not good enough for God’s glory, and all need to be made right with God by his grace, which is a free gift. They need to be made free from sin through Jesus Christ”Romans 3:23-24. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
3. God’s plan was to have Jesus Christ take the penalty for your sins
For you to get right with God, the penalty for your sin must be paid. God’s gift to you is His son, Jesus, who paid the debt for your sins when He died on the Cross. “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for u.” (Romans 5:8).
4. To become a christian we need to understand that you have to receive God’s gift of salvation
Knowing about Jesus does not make you a Christian; you must accept and receive by faith what he did for you in dying for your sins. God then makes you a child of His. “As many
as received Him, (Jesus Christ) to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12).
