“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
Jesus calls everyone to follow and put their faith in him. He said:
“The time has come. The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news.” Mark 1:15
If you want to follow Jesus, and want to be a part of God’s kingdom, there are two things that you must do.
Repent – turn around from living a life away from God, and turn back to God.
Believe the good news – Trust that through Jesus’ death and resurrection you can be restored and have a fresh start with God.
Finding faith and becoming a Christian is not about doing good deeds to get in God’s good books. It is about committing to Jesus, who has done what we could not do. He died for our sins, so that we could have life with God.
“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.” John 3:16
