What is a Christian

“A Christian is any man, woman or child who comes to God as a lost sinner, accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, surrenders to HIM as their Lord and Master, confesses HIM as such before the world, and strives to please Him in everything day by day.”

Have you come to God realizing that you are a lost sinner? Have you accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior; that is do you believe with all your heart that God laid all your iniquity on Him? (Isa. 53:5-6), and that He bore the penalty of your sins (I Peter 2:24), and that Your sins are forgiven because Jesus died in your stead?

Have you surrendered to Him as your Lord and Master? That is, are you willing to do His will even when it conflicts with your desire?

Have you confessed Him as your Savior before the world?

Is it your purpose to strive to please Him in everything day by day?

If you can sincerely answer “YES” to the  foregoing questions, then you many know on the authority of God’s Word that you are NOW a child of God (John 1:12), that you have NOW eternal life (John 3:36); that is to say, if you  have done your part (i.e. believe that Christ died in your place and receive Him as your Savior and Master) God has done HIS part and imparted to you His own nature (II Peter 1:4)

Today I have asked Jesus into my life and I am now a new creature in Christ.   With God’s help I will live my new life so as to bring glory to God.
