How can I become a child of God?
The Bible says in Romans 10:9: ‘If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.’ Therefore it is very simple to become a Christian. You do not have to do all kinds of rituals. But to be a Christian is more than taking a single decision; it is a lifestyle. In Jesus we start a whole new life. The Bible calls this the ‘new birth’. This means that we believe and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is our personal Savior and Redeemer. We realize that we are sinners and repent of our sins.
To be a Christian means that we are followers of Christ. This includes that we follow and serve Jesus and stop doing sin. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says: ‘If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.’ When Jesus lives in our hearts, He changes us. He gives us a new nature. Know that a life with Jesus is the best life you can ever have!
