Exams

I’m so glad that as a Christian exams aren’t everything :) (Not because mine are going bad or anything) We should work hard for them, but it’s great to be able to look past them and to think of heaven and to have an eternal perspective –they’re not important at all in the big picture. What is so much more important is glorifying God and pleasing Him by telling people about his amazing message –that Christ came into the world to save sinners and that all anyone needs to do is believe in Jesus to be saved :)

How to become a Christian

I am not trying to force this on anyone, but I want to write this so that if someone wants to become a christian they can know what they need to do.
It's very simple, but it's a very important decision -it will change the rest of your life (for the better!).
All you have to do is:
(1) Admit to God that you have done things wrong
(2) Ask God to forgive you for these things through Jesus' death on the cross
(3) Believe that He has forgiven you -i.e. Take him at his word, trust what he has said.

It's that simple.

This is not something I have made up -this is what God says in the bible:
Romans 3:23 -'for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God'
Romans 5:8 -'But God demonstrates his own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.'
Romans 10:9 -'if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.'

If you do this I would recommend telling another christian (you can tell me if you don't know any other christians) so that they can help answer any questions you may have etc.


What God has Done For Me

I'll start with a bit about my past -When I was little I always went to church with my family, twice every Sunday, and there I was taught about God from the bible. Both of my parents were christians, but I knew that that didn't make me a christian -I knew that being a christian is about a personal relationship between you and God, and I didn't have that. I knew that I had done things wrong (same as every other person has) and I knew through God's words, written down in the Bible, that because of the wrong things I'd done I was separated from God. I knew that Jesus, God's Son, had come into the world about 2000 years ago to provide a way to reconcile us (men and women) with God. Jesus (God) came to earth, lived a perfect life, and then chose to willingly die, on a cross, to take the punishment for my sins (since he had no sins of his own to be punished) and the sins of every person who ever lived. Our sins have to be punished because although God is an all loving God, he is also a just God. I knew I had the choice to ask God to forgive my sins through Jesus' sacrifice on the cross, or to take the punishment myself when I die. This second thought really scared me a lot. But, when I was 18 I took the very simple step of asking God to forgive me -I admitted that I had done things wrong, asked God to forgive me through Jesus' death, and then believed that God had done just that, just as he promises to for anyone who asks!
There are so many amazing things about being a christian (which I've explained in another entry), but the most important thing to me is that I know I am going to go to heaven now when I die, and I am not scared of dying anymore, because I'm not trusting in myself, but in Jesus.

Some Amazing Things About Being a Christian

A lot of people think that being a christian restricts you and makes your life boring. They think God is a kill joy. This isn't true! These are just a few things that I think are great about being a christian:

•You have a place in heaven! (Luke 23:43)
•Your life has purpose –the reason for your life is to glorify God and to tell people about Him and what He has done for them –this is an amazing privilege. (Matt 28:19)
•You are never alone –God is always with you and helps you through everything. (Hebrew 13:5)
•God, the creator of the whole universe is your friend. (colossians 1:16)
•You don’t ever need to be afraid of dying. (John 3:16)
•You can never be separated from God’s Love (Romans 8:35)
•You have God’s Holy Spirit inside you to help you. (John 14:16)
•You can speak to God through prayer. (1 John 5:14&15)
•You know that everything in your life works together for good. (Romans 8:28)
