How to begin a relationship with Jesus Christ (continued)
So how can we receive this gift of eternal life from God?
4. God loves you and me so much that we can receive this gift from God if we believe in him. We receive this gift not for what we do but as an act of faith. It is trusting Jesus Christ alone for salvation and nothing else. God wants this for you more than you can know. Revelation 3:20a - "Here I am! I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him." Jesus will do his part by providing eternal life if you do your part by believing in him.
What are the actual steps to become a believer?
5. Steps to become a believer. Becoming a believer can take place anywhere. Going through the steps below will require praying to God so you may want a quiet place where you would not be interrupted. Prayer is simply talking to God. There is no special language and there are no special words. God sees you and knows what you are thinking in your heart. So, as long as this is a genuine point in your life He will most assuredly hear what you say.
