HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN
Becoming a Christian can be as easy as ABC
Acknowledge – we must acknowledge that we have sinned against God, be sincerely repentant and ask His forgiveness. Jesus Christ took the punishment for our sins so that when we repent we can be forgiven and reconciled to God.
All of us like sheep have gone astray,
We have turned, each one, to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the wickedness of us all [our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing]
To fall on Him [instead of us].
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God [that is, His remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers] is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Believe – we must believe that Jesus is God’s son, receive Him as our Lord and personal Saviour and get to know God through Jesus Christ.
16 “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] [a]only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life.
John 3:16 Amplified Bible (AMP)
3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true [supreme and sovereign] God, and [in the same manner know] Jesus [as the] Christ whom You have sent.
John 17:3 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Confess – we must confess our new faith in Christ to God and to men
‘ ‘…if you confess with your mouth the lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.’
2 By this you know and recognize the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges and confesses [the fact] that Jesus Christ has [actually] come in the flesh [as a man] is from God [God is its source]
1 John 4:2
