How to become a follower of Christ

  • To become a Follower of Christ, a person must first realize that he or she is "lost" - totally estranged from God, separated from God by a sinful nature. Get a Bible, the history of God's relationship with humankind, and read Romans 3:23 "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."  (NIV)


  • A person alone cannot reconcile the lost relationship between himself or herself and God. To provide a remedy, God sent his only Son, Jesus, to live the perfect life God demands.  Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."  (NIV)


  • Although humanity through sin has separated itself from God, the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross bridges the gap.  Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (NIV)


  • All God asks is that a man or woman repent of their sins, turn from them and accept the sacrifice Christ made on the cross for those sins.  Romans 10:9 "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."  (NIV)


  • God promises in the Bible that anyone who accepts Christ as Savior shall be saved.  Romans 10:13 "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."  (NIV)


All of this may be easily summed up in saying that to "Become a Follower of Christ" we must in prayer to God:

A)  ADMIT that we are a sinner and ask His (God's) forgiveness.

B)  BELIEVE that He (GOD) can and does forgive us when we turn to Him.

C)  COMMIT our lives to Him (GOD); which is to say, live our lives as He says we should (follow Him).
