How to Become a Christian

Many of my previous blogs mention God, lessons, thoughts about God and/or Christianity.  However, was I have failed to write about is, how does one become a Christian.

The Bible tells us that God loved the world so much that He gave His only son, Jesus Christ and whoever believes in will not "perish" but have eternal life (verse that supports this is in John 3:16).    What does that mean?   That means God loves us, you, me SOOOOO much that he gave His sweetest possession, His son to be the last sacrifice for us.   Some of you out there may be parents, can you actually imagine giving your little baby, and sacrifice him or her so that another person can live?   Well God did this because He loved us so much, He wanted to have a relationship with us.  

God promises us the following things in the Bible:

1) ALL have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. (Romans 3:23, Romans 6: 23, & 1 John 1:10)
  * That means not 1 person EVER has been sinless in this life (excluding Jesus)

2) BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved. ( Acts 16:21 & 1 John 1:12)

3) CONFESS - If you confess with your mouth, that the Lord is Jesus Christ, believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  (Romans10:9 & Ephesians 2:8-9)

It is literally that simple, Believe, Confess ... and start building and living how God wanted us to start living.  This is just the start!
