The A B C's of Becoming a Christian
A - ADMIT: Admit to God that you are a sinner and turn away (repent) from your sin.
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
B - BELIEVE: Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and accept His gift of forgiveness from sin.
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; It is the gift of God; not works, lest any man should boast."
C - CONFESS: Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Romans 10:9-10 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, though shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
Romans 1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth."
The Roman's Road to Salvation
Romans 3:23 says---For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God..........."All" means you and me. We've all sinned in God's eyes, not necessarily because of the many wrong things we may have done, but simply because we don't measure up to God's Glory, which is Jesus Christ. Also we'll never measure up because we're all born sinners in a sinful world....REMEMBER;; when that day of judgment comes (and it will) we'll not be measured by our talents and abilities, rather, by Jesus Christ and how much we've tried to measure up to Him.
Romans 6:23 says---For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord..........We all know that wages are what we earn, and deserve to get paid for. Well the payment for sin is death. DEATH described as eternal separation from God) That's what we deserve for our sin. The good news however is that God doesn't give us what we deserve, instead He gives us a gift of love and life, free and all we have to do is accept it. Don't let your gift go unused. Receive it today and you're life will be changed.
Romans 10:13 says---For everyone who calls on the name of Jesus will be saved...........Friends, we all need Christ in our lives and we all need salvation. that is to know that we'll live with Christ in heaven when we die)
