Why Should I Become A Christian?

Our lives are defined by the decisions we make.  From everyday decisions, like getting out of bed, to major life choices, the person you become is a result of the choices you make.

Why Should I Become A Christian?

But the biggest decision you will ever make relates to Jesus Christ – will you follow Him and become a Christian?

Why you don’t want to

Christianity can seem dull and dreary – lots of rules and regulations about things you just aren’t interested in. In the minds of many, God is like a cosmic spoilsport, looking down to see who is enjoying themselves and trying to put a stop to it.

But the reality could not be further from the truth! God loves you and wants the best for you. Everything He does and says is for your ultimate good.

Why you should want to

We all have a deep longing to be free and to find significance in life. But we are enslaved by our selfish desires. We enjoy fulfilling them at the time, but the lack of lasting satisfaction they bring always makes us miserable in the end.

Because God loves us, He wants to set us free from ourselves – no matter what the cost is to Him. So in Christ, He “gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people” (Titus 2:14).

Jesus’ death on the cross alone sets us free. Becoming a follower of Jesus – a Christian – is freedom! It allows us to become the people we were truly meant to be.

Why you need to

Our sinful actions don’t just ruin our lives now, they will separate us from God eternally. If we are not prepared to admit that we need Jesus to save us, we face banishment from God’s presence forever: He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36).

Do you want to have a life that is truly meaningful? Do you want to find your purpose and fulfil it? Only in Jesus, by trusting and following Him, can you experience true freedom and true joy.
