How do you know if you’re a Christian?
June 13, 2011
And Agrippa said to Paul, “In a short time would you persuade me to be a Christian?” And Paul said, “Whether short or long, I would to God that not only you but also all who hear me this day might become such as I am—except for these chains.”
How do you know you’re a Christian? If you asked many people in church today, you might hear, “Well, I think I prayed a prayer to receive Christ.” Or, they may tell you, “I came forward during an invitation.” But becoming a Christian is much more significant than simply praying a prayer or walking an aisle. It means moving from death to life.
As you look back at your life, has there been a moment of decision to follow Christ? Do you know that it’s happened to you?
Now, I don’t necessarily believe that you have to remember the exact minute, hour, or day, but you should know that there was a definite moment in your life when you passed from death to life. How can you pass from death unto life and not know it? One man said, “If you can be saved and not know it, then you could lose it and never miss it.”
I know that I’m saved because I made a decision and I was just a little boy and my life has never been the same. So if you’ve never come to a point in your life where you’ve said, “Jesus, I admit I’m a sinner, and I trust full in your death and resurrection for the forgiveness of my sins,” would you do that today? If you confess that and believe it in your heart, you can be sure you’ve moved from death to life in the family of Christ!
IF YOU AREN’T COMPLETELY SURE IF YOU’RE A CHRISTIAN, CONFESS YOUR SINS TO CHRIST TODAY AND TRUST IN HIS FORGIVENESS!
