Christian Sign

If you are serious about becoming a Christian, there are a few things you need to understand. Becoming a Christian is not like joining a club, neither is it the same as
taking up a new interest or hobby. Your desire to be a Christian has to become an overwhelming necessity. Such a desire will not be created by a casual interest, but only by God working in your heart and mind.

You cannot make yourself a Christian
You may decide to call yourself a Christian, but that is not the same as actually being one. This ls because of what a Christian is.By definition a Christian is a 'Christ-Person', one who loves the Lord Jesus Christ and seeks to live his or her life according to the Saviours teachings. But this is contrary to all that you are by nature, so to become a Christian your nature must be changed. Only God can do that.

1     You must seek God while there is still time


How? God can and must be 'found'. Looking for God is the most important thing you will ever do. Read the Bible, 'call upon him' in prayer.

He 'is near'.

2     You must repent


These verses emphasize the need to repent. Repenting means that
you accept that your ways are evil in the sight of God. It means
acknowledging that you stand condemned before a holy God and that you need to turn to him as the only way. It means turning away from
your sin and rejection of God. It is a complete change of life and
direction. Only God can help you do this. The Bible calls it being born

3     You must turn to God


These verses commend you to turn to God in the expectation that he
will forgive and receive you. This you do by believing in the Lord Jesus
Christ as the one who justifies the ungodly through his death and res-
urrection. You must believe that God exists, that he sent his Son to
die for your sins and that he can and will save you, if you turn to him in
repentance and faith. When you turn to God, you can rely on what the
Lord Jesus has said, that "All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me l will never drive away".

Man happy
