Have you been hearing the word “Christian“?
It means having Christ in you, because the Bible says that you are the temple of God and that God abides in us (1 Corinthians 6: 19).
Salvation is not just being called a Christian, it is a relationship with God. The Bible says that God made us in his own image (Genesis 1:26), we carry the characteristics of God in us, you have the DNA of God in you. And because he loves you and me so much he sent his only Son Jesus to die on the cross for you and me (Romans 5: 8) as a sacrifice. God raised Jesus from the dead (Romans 8: 11) and offers you eternal life (John 3: 16). And John 3: 17 says that God did not send Jesus to condemn the world but to save us through him. And he also has given us the position/authority to be his Children (John 1: 2).
That’s pretty awesome news. If you think the problem is being human, all of us having the same big problem: sin? Well I shall try to help you.
What is Sin? Sin is basically choosing your own way over God’s. We deserve to be separated from God because of our guilt of sin, but he loved us so much that he sent his only Son to rescue us from sin. Jesus lived a perfect sinless life, He died willingly as a sacrifice so that you and I could be forgiven.
If you have never started a relationship with Jesus, why not do it today? The Bible says, “Now is the day of Salvation” (2 Corinthians 6: 2) God invites you to be part of his family!
How is this possible? The Bible says in Romans 10: 9, 10 if you confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you are saved. For by believing you are made Righteous and confession by mouth is unto Salvation.
Let’s begin and start believing, confess and admit.
- Tell God about your guilt and admit to him that you have gone your own way over his.
- Believe that Jesus died on the cross for you and that he rose again. Believe that Jesus is the only way to God (John 14: 6)
- Ask Jesus to come into your life and be your Saviour and King.
[ An example prayer to help you:
Jesus, I am sorry for going my own way, I believe that you died on the cross for my sins and that you have saved and forgiven me. I believe that you rose again. Lord Jesus come into my heart, I want you to be my ruler and King. I Jesus name I declare, Amen! ]
If you have began a Relationship with GOD, Congratulations! This is the best and most important decision you have ever made, please do join a local church to help you know Jesus more and the gifts he has for us. You can lead the perfect life through Jesus!
