How Do I Accept Christ?
The ABC’s of Salvation
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, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
A – Acknowledge that you are a sinner and want forgiveness. Because Man disobeyed God in the beginning, sin entered into the world and God was then separated from man.
Scripture references: Genesis 2:15, 3:1-6; Romans 3:1-23
B – Believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins.
Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, that we might be reconciled back to God.
Scripture references: John 14:6; Romans 5:12-21
C – Confess Jesus Christ as your Savior, and ask Him to come into your life.
If you confess Jesus Christ as your Savior and ask Him to come into your life, He will and you are now saved. It does not matter how you feel or what you think, trust God’s Word.
Now that you are saved, it is important for you to grow and develop as a Christian. Part of the growth and development is to be perfected. In order to be perfected or matured, you must find yourself a Bible Believing, Bible Teaching church. It is important for you to hear the Word each week and get involved in serving the Lord. You must also begin to develop a personal relationship with the Lord.
How Do I Grow In My Walk With Christ?
Here are some helpful starters to assist you in growing in your walk with Christ:
• I must talk to my Father
Prayer is your communication method with the Lord. In order to talk with the Lord, you must spend time in prayer. Start each day by thanking and praising God for all that He has done. God will speak to you in a manner you can understand, begin to talk and then force yourself to listen.
• Take time each day to read the Word of God.
• I must control my flesh
When we become Born Again, our Spirits are renewed, changed. Our flesh is not. In order for us to walk successfully as Christians, we must learn to control our natural bodies and force our bodies to obey what the Word of God says. This does not come naturally. Yet it can be done through discipline.
