Once we have come face to face with Jesus, it becomes abundantly clear that we are unworthy of His affections. Our sin stands out as we bask in the perfection of a holy God. So the question arises - how do we know we are saved? If our sin severs our relationship with God, then what must we do to be saved?
At some point in your spiritual journey, you’re going to ask, “What must I do to become a Christian?” Luckily, Jesus paved the way by shedding His blood on the Cross. His sacrifice paid the penalty for our sins, and we are guilty no more in the sight of God. So what must we do to be saved?
The important thing to know is that salvation cannot be earned - there is nothing we can do to EARN the affection of God, but there are steps we must take - faith steps - as we seek to claim the eternal reward God has promised to those who seek His Son. In His wisdom, God has given us a very simple, five-step plan. Everyone in the New Testament became a member of Christ’s church after taking these five steps. If we follow these 5 simple steps into a wonderful, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, then we are guaranteed the eternal rewards of an amazing God.
