The Bible says, ‘For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?’ – Mark 8:36. The world’s emphasis is on ‘being someone’ or ‘getting something’. Yet neither can bring about a lasting satisfaction, usually the reverse.
True peace and contentment is only found in the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says, ‘He is the Saviour of all men, especially of those who believe’ – 1 Timothy 4:10. ‘There is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus’ – 1 Timothy 2:5. In other words, Jesus can only become your Saviour if you ask him.
The following is a simple way to become a Christian:
Firstly, by facing up to the fact that you have sinned and fallen far short of the righteousness God demands.
Secondly, by realising that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and then rose again from the dead to prove that his sacrifice had been accepted.
Thirdly, by asking the Lord Jesus Christ to come into your life, forgive you of all your sins, cleanse you from all unrighteousness and make you become a new creation. This is what happens when someone is born again and becomes a Christian.
Fourthly, by thanking the Lord Jesus Christ for hearing and answering your prayer, asking him to fill you with the Holy Spirit.
Fifthly, by not being ashamed to tell people that you have become a Christian, now pray, read your bible and go to church.
Please let us know if you sincerely followed the above steps for the first time and Recovery Ministries will do its best to put you in touch with a good church where you will be able to fellowship and grow spiritually.
