We want to share a wonderful truth that changed my life completely.
The first step to become a child of God is to admit what I am before God’s eyes and accept what is said about me. We are born sinners. That is something terrible that hurts us as much as others, and what is more, we turn away from God. He can forgive all or sins as long as we repent sincerely and admit our sinful nature.
Being sinners, we need a Saviour. God loves people so much that He gave His only begotten Son to die on the cross for our sins. It is a gift given by Him without having to pay for it or even deserve it, but just receive it.
God cannot overlook our sins. He must get rid of sin, for that reason He allowed Jesus to take our punishment and die for our sins. The Lord Jesus Christ not only died for our sins, but also rose from the dead. He is the Living Saviour that forgives our sins and can give us the right to become children of God.
God has given me the Lord Jesus as my Saviour, but I must receive Him. It is a personal decision that makes me a child of God and opens Heaven doors to eternal life.
I start living the life God wants for me. Our relationship with God is like a seed that needs taking good care of to grow. Speaking with Him daily (praying), reading the Bible, telling others about Christ, and fellowshipping with other Christians at church are ways of looking after our relationship with God.
