Becoming a follower of Christ is the most important thing that you can do. Maybe you have been thinking about it for a while and you are ready to say yes, but you do not know how.
Becoming a follower of Christ is not complicated as some might think. It simply entails 2 things, repenting from your sins and believing in Christ.
The Bible says in Romans 3:23 that ALL have sinned. That includes you and me. We have all done things that break God’s laws.
Mark 1: 15 Jesus says, “The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe in the gospel.”
Repentance is admitting that you have sinned and renouncing that sin to head in the opposite direction.
Here is the gravity of our sins. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death.” This means that the payment for are sins is death, and death meaning eternity in Hell.
In 1 John 1:9 the Bible gives us all hope. It says that; “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” This means that God will forgive you of all your sins.There is no sin too great that God cannot forgive. Click To Tweet
Romans 6:23 goes on and says: “But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.” God has given to us a free gift in His son Jesus.
This is not something that we can earn but it is freely given. Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God, not of works less any man should boast.”
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave his only son, that whoever would believe in Him [Jesus] will not perish [go to hell], But have everlasting life.” So God has promised us eternal life if we just believe in Christ.
In Acts 16:31 a man asks the apostle Paul what he needs to do to be saved and Paul responded, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.”
That is all that it takes!
Repent of your sin and Believe in Jesus.
If you would like to become a follower of Christ just follow this pattern as you pray.
- Repent and ask God to forgive you of your sins.

So Repent and Believe.
