How To Become A Christian
We all will die, but GOD loves us so HE made a
way that we can be with HIM in Heaven.
2 Samuel 14:14 "Like water
spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does
not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not
remain estranged from him."
Note it says that we are banished, and
estranged from GOD. But also note He devises ways so that we do not have
to remain that way.
What makes us to be separated from GOD, our
Isaiah 59:2 "But your iniquities have separated you from
your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not
Sin is what keeps us apart from GOD. And the Bible says
we are all sinners.
Psalms 14:3 "All have turned aside, they have
together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one."
Ecclesiastes 7:20 "There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is
right and never sins."
Isaiah 53:6 "We all, like sheep, have
gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all."
Romans 3:23 "for all have sinned and
fall short of the glory of God,"
Has the Bible convinced
you that you are a sinner? I know I am a Sinner!
John 1:8 "If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth
is not in us."
Now I ask you, how do we get rid of our sin?
So we can have a relationship with GOD. Some will say, "just try your
best to be good, and don't sin." Others might say, "join a
church, or be baptized." Still others have told me, "if you are
God conches, (if you believe in God), that makes you a Christian."
But what does the Bible say about Sin?
1 John 1:7 "But if we walk in
the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the
blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin."
"and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the
dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed
us from our sins by his blood,"
Romans 5:9 "Since we have now
been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from Godís wrath
1 Peter 3:18 "For Christ died for sins once
for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to
death in the body but made alive by the Spirit,"
Boy the Bible says
that my sins are so bad JESUS had to die for them. We don't like to think
that we are that bad, do we? But I do allot of good things, doesn't that
count for something?
Isaiah 64:6 " All of us have become like one who
is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up
like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away."
says that our good acts are even bad in the sight of GOD. So even if we
try are best to be good, and attend church regularly that can't save us from our
The only way we can be saved from our sins, is thru faith in JESUS, whose blood
washes away our sins.
Galatians 3:22 " But the Scripture declares
that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being
given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe."
Romans 3:22 "This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus
Christ to all who believe."
Romans 5:1 "Therefore, since we have
been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus
Galatians 2:16 "know that a man is not justified by
observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith
in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing
the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified."
Ephesians 2:8 "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and
this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God"
So I can't do
anything to work off my sin. It is only through faith in JESUS that can
If you believe that JESUS died on the cross for
your sins, Why not pray to him now?
GOD I know I am a sinner. But I
except by faith that JESUS died for my sins. And now I am forgiven, not by
anything I did, but because JESUS died for me. Come in to my heart JESUS
and make me a new person. Help me to study the Bible so I can get to know
you better, and grow as one of your children. In JESUS name, amen.
