How do I become a Christian?

November 7th, 2006

Someone asked me how to become a Christian recently. Because of this I thought there might be others out there who would like to know also.

Each of us must respond personally to God’s plan for our salvation. God played His part by giving His Son to pay the price for our sin. Our part to receive what Jesus has done for us. God requires us to do three things to find salvation. They can be described as the A, B, C of salvation –

A – Admit

We need to admit to God that we have sinned and fallen short of His standards and to ask for His forgiveness.

B – Believe

We need to believe in Jesus Christ, that He is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for our sin.

C – Commit

We need to commit our lives to Jesus Christ and ask Him to come into our lives and guide and lead us in all we do.

How can I do this?

Responding to God is as simple as praying a short prayer that expresses our thanks for what He has done, confessing your sin and asking Jesus into your life. You can pray this prayer right now.

Dear Lord,

I thank You that you came and died on the cross for my sin. Right now I ask for Your forgiveness. Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God and I believe that You died so I could receive eternal life. I ask You to be a part of my life. Please guide me and lead me in all I do and help me to live for You. Amen.
