Want to know more about what it means to follow Jesus?
Below we have outlined some information so you can do exactly that!
In a very complicated, "religious" world, God has made becoming a Christian simple. Becoming a Christian or salvation will be the beginning of your relationship with Jesus Christ.
Understanding salvation is as easy as A—B—C:
A - Admit
A relationship with Jesus Christ begins with your admission that you need Him. You must admit you need God to do three things:
You need God to forgive you of your sins, those attitudes or actions that don't meet God's standards.
“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:8-9
2. You need God to give you eternal life.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
3. You need God to show you His purpose for your life.
“The thief [Satan] comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy. I [Jesus] have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” John 10:10
B - Believe
Believe that Jesus dies for your sins and rose from the dead. The penalty for your sin is death. God loves you so much that He provides a way for you to escape that penalty. Jesus can and will save anyone from an eternity without God. He died and rose again for your justification, to right your relationship with God.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
“He [Jesus] was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.” Romans 4:25
C - Confess
Confessing Jesus as Lord means to commit total control of your life to Christ. You give Him the ownership of your life. He becomes your new boss. If you confess Jesus as Lord of your life, the Bible says you will be saved.
"If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved." Romans 10:9-10
The following prayer is one you can use to confess Jesus as Lord and ask Him to save you:
Dear God, I admit I am a sinner in need of you. Please forgive me of my sins and give me abundant life here on earth and eternal life with you in heaven. I believe Jesus died and rose again for my sins. I confess Jesus as Lord and Saviour of my life. I ask Jesus now to come into my life and save my soul, and guide and direct my life from this point on, as my Lord. Thank you for saving me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
