A Christian Defined

“…And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.” (Acts 11:26)

A Christian is a born again believer, a Christ-follower who accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord…not with their head, but with their heart. Without this new birth, you will not see the kingdom of heaven. It doesn’t matter what race or religion or denomination or other ideas, no matter how noble, you may have…the only way to eternal life is through Jesus Christ. Humanity may have many facets; God does not. He is a God of love and forgiveness. That is the whole point of the cross. If you do not accept that forgiveness and make a decision to follow Christ, you will be lost for all eternity. This is not open for discussion with God; it is His word.

The word of God is overflowing with many scriptures and statements that Jesus made. Search them out, with the heart, not the head; with child-like faith, not adult reasoning; with “believing without seeing” faith…not a mind seeking proof.

Search the scriptures with your heart, not your mind. Ask the Holy Spirit to open the truth of God’s word to you. Thank Jesus for the forgiveness He offers, accept it and ask Him to live in your heart as your Lord and Savior. Amen!

The Gift of God

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Jesus is the Door to heaven…Salvation is His Gift.

You can’t earn, beg, borrow, buy, steal, join, inherit or work your way to heaven…it is the gift of God…least any man should boast.
