All men have sinned and have come short of Gods glory (Rom 5:12) and so there needs to be a point in time where we turn back to God. When a person in this state of mind hears the word (Rom 10:17), it takes root in their heart and then they are convicted – convicted of sin (this is the work of the Holy Spirit).You need to confess your sins and believe in Jesus by asking Jesus to come into your live(John 3:16).
Next thing to understand is that this change is only done through faith. We no longer let our emotions, our feelings and flesh control what we do, what we say and how we behave. “Old things have passed away, behold all things have become new” (2 Cor 5:17). But understand that the process after our commitment to Christ, is gradual. We give our lives to Christ and we are like babies (1 Pet 2:2).
When you meditate on God’s word fervently and faithfully you will grow and your thoughts and actions gradually change and become more like Christ’s. And once born again and are a disciple of Christ, you need to spread the good news of Christ. Once we are made disciples of Christs, we are mandated to go out into the world and make more disciples (Matt 28:16 – 20). Being born again is a decision we make to give our life entirely to Christ.
This is a common question that many people ask. One thing to note is that if you truly seek God you will find him if you search him with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:13).
God created the universe in a very calculated and orderly way and He is the one who sustains it. The complexity of the sophisticated and sequential coding of our DNA (the foundation/building blocks of a cell) is designed by God alone. God is the author of life itself. A relationship with Him is what he desires and it is only this that gives meaning and purpose to our lives.
That is why evidence of Him is all around if we truly desire to seek Him. He is aware of our sins and shortcomings so Jesus, the Son of God, came to die for our sins and redeem us. Those who believe will be saved. Jesus is one clear way God decided to reveal himself to us. Jesus came in flesh and blood and we can identify with Him and He performed miracles so that the power of God is evident.
He is more than ready to reveal himself if you are willing to believe in Him
The church is the house of God; a group of believers who gather together to worship God. The true church edifies each other. The church is designed to encourage, strengthen and urge each other through the journey of life. It is important to note that once saved, no man is an island. Hebrews 10: 25 (MSG) says “Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching”.
God’s word describes the church in many ways but never once referred to it as being separate from Christ who is our source. It would be weird to believe in Christ but hate the church because the church is the body of Christ (1 Cor 12:21). Jesus is the vine and we are the branches and we need to abide in him to be fruitful. A church that keeps Christ as their focus would always be fruitful. A true church is scripture based and rooted in the love of God.
Finding a bible believing church is very crucial to your spiritual growth.
