HOW TO BECOME A CHILD OF GOD (WITH BIBLE VERSES)

 WHY DO YOU NEED TO BE SAVED/BECOME A CHILD OF GOD?

Sin came to you by one man’s disobedience.

Rom 5:12(NLT) “When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam's sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned” 

The consequence of sin is death

Rom 6:23a“For the wages of sin is death" 

Rom 5:14 (NLT) “Still, everyone died—from the time of Adam to the time of Moses—even those who did not disobey an explicit commandment of God, as Adam did. Now Adam is a symbol, a representation of Christ, who was yet to come” 

Grace/forgiveness comes to you by one man's obedience

Rom 5:19 (NLT) 

Because one person disobeyed God, many became sinners. But because one other person obeyed God, many will be made righteous”    

"And the result of God's gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man's sin. For Adam's sin led to condemnation, but God's gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins. Yes, Adam's one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ's one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone (Rom 5:16-18). 

Dear reader, the above verses show three vital truths.

1.    You have sinned

2.    Jesus has paid the price for your sins 

3.    You can become a child of God 

HOW CAN YOU BECOME A CHILD OF GOD/SAVED?

1. Believe God loves you (regardless of who you are or what you have done)

Rom 5:8-9-NLT 

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. 

 2. Believe in Jesus (He is the only way to be saved).

John 3:16 

 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

3. Receive Jesus (John 1:12-13; Rom 10:9-10)

“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. 

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.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

To become a child of God (saved), believe in Jesus and receive Him by saying a prayer like the one below.

“Dear God, I believe you love me and demonstrated Your love for me by giving Jesus to die for me. I believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose again to give me a new life. A life free from sin, condemnation, shame and all the oppressions of the devil. Right now, I receive Jesus into my heart as my Lord and Saviour. Thank you Jesus, for forgiving me and saving me, Amen.

 

If you said this prayer from your heart, God heard you and has given you a new life. As with every life, you learn to grow in it and enjoy it to the fullest. We invite you to join us as we learn about this life.
