How To Be A Christian

I. THE GOSPEL OF JESUS FOR EVERLASTING LIFE
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is: That Jesus came from heaven down to earth (John 3:13; John 6:38)
Lived a perfect human life without sin (2nd Corinthians 6:21; 1st Peter 2:21)
He was crucified (died) on the cross for all men’s sins (1st Peter 2:24; John 19:16-19).
Buried in the grave (1st Corinthians 15:4; Matthew 27:57-61)
Jesus resurrected (arose) from the dead (Matthew 17:22-23; Luke 24:45-47; 1st Corinthians 15:4)
Jesus ascended back to heaven and He sits on the right hand side of the Father (Romans 8:34; Ephesians 1:15-20)
One day soon we believe that Jesus will return to bless Christians with eternal life and establish His everlasting kingdom (1st Thessalonians 15:51-52.

II. THE A, B, C, D’s OF SPENDING ETERNITY WITH GOD

1. Admit that you are a sinner & have sinned. Romans 3:10; 3:23; 5:8; 6:23a.
a. Ask God for forgiveness. 1st John 1:9. Romans 10:13; Ephesians 4:32.

a. Become a child of God by receiving Jesus. 1st John 1:12; Revelation 3:20.
3. Commit your ways to God by submitting and surrendering your heart and mind to Jesus and making Him Lord and Ruler of your life. Rom 10:9, 10; Philippians 2:11.
a. Come to Jesus just as you are. Matthew 11:28-30; John 6:37.
4. Details thru Discipleship. Follow up & follow thru by being an active part and member of a Bible teaching Christian Church (Fellowship). Grow thru a Systematic Study of God’s Word thru Devotions, Sunday school, Biblical teaching, spiritual growth & maturity. Romans 12:1-2; Colossians 1:9-10; Hebrews 10:19-25.

III. ROMANS ROAD TO ETERNAL SALVATION

– Gospel is the Eternal Saving Power of God thru the belief in the life, death, & burial of Jesus. 1st Cor 15:1-4.
– As Christians, we should NOT be ashamed (reluctant, fearful, embarrassed) to tell others about Jesus.

Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
– Sin is missing the mark thru the moral wrong doing & transgression against God’s standards (laws) according to the Word of God. Sin separates us from God. Romans 3:9.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 8:34.

– The Gospel of Salvation is available for all people (nations, races). Joel 2:32.

Romans 12:1-2 Present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 1st Thess 4:1.
