The other day at Sunday school, someone brought a current event about a woman that at the age of fifty decided to become Jewish. The article went on to talk about how she did not believe in God though. We were all very surprised at that. We thought that all religions should have a higher power.
After we discussed that article, the question was brought up about what that church believed. Then, someone asked what Christians believed. Nobody ever did answer that question but I think it brings up a very good point. There are lots of people who call themselves Christians but do not know what they believe or do not live their lives as Christians.
As a Christian, I believe that Jesus is the Son of God who came to earth to live a perfect, sinless life. Jesus died on the cross as a sacrifice for all sins. All Christians should acknowledge that they are a sinner and cannot do anything to save themselves. Jesus did die for all sins though so whoever accepts this forgiveness and surrenders their lives to Him will one day spend eternity in Heaven.
As Christians, good works will not get us to Heaven but that does not mean that we should not be good to others. We should perform good deeds and help those in need. We should live our lives with good values. While we know that we will never be perfect, we still need to put forth the effort and try to do what is right.
Finally, Jesus is going to come back again someday to judge everyone. Nobody knows when that day will be though. As Christians, it is our job to tell others about Jesus before it is too late.
Life is too short. We do not know how much longer we have on this earth. That is why we need Jesus. If you want to know how to become a Christian, please read my blog How to Become a Christian. Do not delay the most important decision of your life. This decision will have serious consequences.
