Are You A Christian?
A Christian Honors God’s Name
2 Corinthians 5:20-Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
To be Christian is not automatic – No one is born a Christian.
Psalms 51:1-God, be merciful to me because of your faithful love. Because of your great compassion, erase all the wrongs I have done. 2 Scrub away my guilt. Wash me clean from my sin. 3 I know I have done wrong. I remember that sin all the time. 4 I did what you said is wrong. You are the one I have sinned against. I say this so that people will know that I am wrong and you are right. What you decided is fair. 5 I was born to do wrong, a sinner before I left my mother’s womb. 6 You want me to be completely loyal, so put true wisdom deep inside of me. 7 Remove my sin and make me pure. Wash me until I am whiter than snow!
- Cry out for God’s mercy and compassion (vv.1-3).
- Confess your sin (vv.4-7)
How do I become a Christian according to God’s Word?
Ephesians 2:8-For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
Romans 10:9-that 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. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
