Becoming a Christian is one of the best decisions you could ever make. It isn’t about church membership or doing enough good things, it is simply taking advantage of a free gift that God gives, salvation. He offers it to any person that asks Him.
God wants a relationship with you! You can start a relationship with God by simply asking Him to be the Lord or the boss of your life. The Bible says in Romans 10:9-10 – “For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.”
God makes becoming a Christian easy. You simply have to believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord and speak or confess that with your mouth. If you’d like to make Jesus the Lord of your life, simply pray this prayer: Jesus, I believe you are the son of God. I know that you died on the cross for me and you took away my sins. I believe that now I am your child. I choose to follow you from this day forward. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Next Steps: If you decided to become a Christian, its a good idea to get involved in a local church or youth group. Make sure that wherever you choose to go you can hear good teaching or preaching from the Bible that will challenge you to grow in your walk with God.
