How To Become A Christian (By Billy Graham) The Central Theme of the Bible's New Testament Is God's Love For You As An Individual. This Love was revealed when Jesus Christ came into the world and lived among men, His dying on the cross and rising from the dead.
Through Christ's death God offers you forgiveness for your sins, and through his resurrection, the promise of everlasting life. Christ died and rose again and rose again for the whole world, but for you to become a Christian is an individualmatter.The only way to establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is to accept His offer of forgiveness and everlasting life. The following Scripture passages show God's part and yours. Read each voice and believe it, for it is the Word of God speaking to you. God's Love Is Revealed "God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son (Jesus), that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) God loves you and all of mankind. He wants to bless your life and make it full and complete. He offers you not only an abundant life here and now, but a life which is eternal -- His Very Own Life.
Man Is Sinful "ALL have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God." (Romans 3:23) The saying, "Well, we are just human -- nobody is perfect," is biblically sound. When we acknowledge this truth, we can see our separation from God, for He is Holy.
Sin Has A Penalty "The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23)
To continue in sin will result is spiritual death, which is separation from God forever. The alternative is to personally receive God's Free Gift, which is pardon for sin and provision of life everlasting.
Jesus Christ Paid The Penalty "God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Jesus died for us." (Romans 5:8)
You may think you must lead a "good" life and do charitable acts befor God will love you. This Is Not So. God Loves You Even in Your Sin. He sent Jesus Christ to die in your place and to pay the penalty for your sin so that you can be reconciled to Him. Salvation Is A Free Gift From God! "It Is By Grace You Have Been Saved, Through Faith -- and this is not from your- selves, It Is The Gift Of God -- Not By Works, So That No One Can Boast." Grace Means Undeserved Favor. God graciously offers to you what you could never do for yourself. God's gift to you is FREE. You do not, and can not, work for a gift. All you need to do is receive it. Believe with all your heart that Jesus Christ died for you to provide deliverance from your sins and to give you Eternal Life. We Must Receive Jesus Christ "Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God." (John 1:12) When you receive Jesus -- when you accept what He has done for you, you become a child of God. Picture, if you will, Jesus Christ standing at the door of your life. Invite Him in. Jesus Is Waiting To Be Received Into Your Life.
Receive Jesus Christ Now! You can invite Jesus Christ into your life Right Now by praying to God something like the following: "Dear Lord, I know that I am a sinner and that I need your forgiveness. I believe that Christ died in my place to pay the penalty for my sin and that He rose from the dead. I Now Invite Jesus Christ To Come Into My Life As My Savior. Thank You for making me Your child. Help me to learn to please You in every part of my life."
God's Promises From His Word "Everyone Who Calls On The Name Of The Lord Will Be Saved." (Romans 10:13) If You just now received Jesus Christ by calling upon the name of the Lord in prayer, the following took place: Your sins were forgiven(Colossians 1:14); you became a child of God (John 1:12); You were made an heir to all of God's blessings (Romans 8:16-17); and You now possess everlasting life.(1 John 5:12-13)! You Became A Christian The Moment You Received Jesus Christ. Don't trust your feelings, for they will change. Take God At His Word And Believe His Promises. Review the above passages whenever doubts arise. You should be able to say with assurance, "I Have Received Jesus Christ. On The Authority Of God's Word, I Have Eternal Life." May God Grant You "All Joy And Peace As You Trust In Him."

Know Jesus Personally (By Associate Pastor Chris Ball - San Marcos Community Church)
These Four Principles Can Help You Discover How To Know God Personally And Experience The Abundant Life He Promised
1) God Loves You and created you to know Him personally. The Bible tells us in John 3:16 that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
Not only does God love us, but He also has a plan for our lives. John 17:3 says, “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.”
2) Man Is Sinful And Separated From God, so we cannot fully know Him personally or experience His love. Man was created to have fellowship with God, but because of his own selfishness, he chose to go his own independent way, and fellowship with God was broken. This self-will, characterized by an attitude of active rebellion or passive indifference, is an evidence of what the Bible calls sin. Romans 3:23 says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Therefore, a great gulf separates God and man. Man is continually trying to reach God and establish a personal relationship with Him through his own efforts, such as living a “good life,” living by a moral code, or finding religion, but he inevitably fails.
3) Jesus ChristIs God’s Only Provision For Man’s Sin. Through Jesus alone we can know God personally and experience His love. Romans 5:8 tells us, “God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” But Christ did not just die. He rose from the dead three days after He was buried. 1 Corinthians 15:3-6 explains that when Christ came back to life, He appeared to Peter, and then to the twelve disciples, and then to 500 more people!
Jesus is the only way to God. John 14:6 says, “Jesus said to them, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through me.'” However, it is not enough to just know these three truths.
4) We Must Individually Receive Jesus Christ As Savior And Lord and only then we can know God personally and experience His love. We receive Christ through faith. In Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works that no man should boast.” When we receive Christ, we experience new birth (John 3:1-8), and we can do this by a personal invitation. Christ says in Revelation 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him."
You Can Receive & Accept Jesus In Your Heart Right Now By Saying:
"Lord Jesus I repent of my sins. Please come into my heart, I make youmy Lord and Savior."Pastor Joel Osteen - Houston, TX
