So… how do I believe into Christ? Simple as A, B, C…
A. Accept your Need for Jesus to be your Righteousness, the only “supply” for your “lack”. God is God, you aren’t and never will be. He is All and He is Perfect… and you get the picture… You never will be. Lean into that Need. Accept forgiveness, healing and the Meaning and Purpose you were created to have In Him.
B. Believe that Jesus paid for your release and Lives to be your Life. Both death and life were transacted on that cross. As the song goes “Death to death and Life for me”. He died, the innocent for the guilty, the hopeless for The Hope. His name is Jesus, God’s Gift of Life and Light to anyone who will simply… Believe.
C. Confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, Believe in your heart God “raised Him from the dead” and be Raised yourself “unto salvation” as Romans 10:9 and 10. Call upon the Lord… “oh, Lord, Jesus!” For whosoever calls upon the Name of the Lord will be Saved… “Sozo” in the greek means whole, full, complete, healed. And keep “Calling”… You still have need of His fullness and completion every single day. You keep Calling, He’ll keep answering and filling. It’s a Deal He will never renege on.
Jesus means Jehovah Saves or Jehovah is Salvation. Take Jesus as your Salvation and your very Life. You won’t be disappointed. He cares for you and wants the very best for you. He has plans and Purpose and a Path for you. But it begins with Accepting your sin, Believing He died to take it from you and exchange His Life for your Death, and by Confessing Jesus as Lord, the Boss, the Faithful Shepherd and Calling on His Name… God is my Salvation.
I’m sure you’ll find more detailed and more “scriptural” ways of describing it than that, but it’s a start. Start Today. -Barabbas
