Being a Christian

Believing in Jesus as the Savior, justifies a person one hundred percent. What God requires of you, He has given Himself to you as a free gift through the sacrifice of Jesus.

But it is also the will of God that the one whom has become a Christian will improve and make progress; turning away from what is wrong, and become more like Jesus. Not for the purpose of being justified and saved, because you can not achieve that by yourself and as a Christian you already have been given this as a free gift. But because you are saved, in the gratitude to God and Jesus who saved you when you did not deserve it.

To make progress as a Christian may feel like two steps forward and one step back, and sometimes two steps back and one step forward. The important thing is to always stay close to Jesus and never try to hide anything from Him. If you have done something you know is wrong, then confess and ask for His forgiveness. Jesus will be your safety net. And you will need Him as long as you live.

"What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not" ... "For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace." (Romans 6, 1&14)

Jesus said: "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing." (John 15,5)

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1, 9)

We strongly recommend that you also become part of a good Christian congregation/church in your local area; get fellowship with other Christians, share the Word of God, Communion etc.
