Introduction

The journey of coming to Christ is a transformative experience that marks the beginning of a new spiritual life in God. In this blog post, we delve into this profound process, breaking down the concept of being ‘born again’ or ‘saved,’ answering common questions, and offering practical guidance for your newfound faith.

What Does It Mean to Be ‘Born Again’ or ‘Saved’?

To be ‘born again’ or ‘saved’ implies undergoing a spiritual rebirth. This concept originates from the conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus in John 3:3, where Jesus says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Here, ‘born again’ doesn’t refer to physical birth but to a spiritual renewal brought about by the Holy Spirit.

Similarly, the term ‘saved’ refers to the deliverance from sin and its consequences through faith in Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9 highlights this by stating, “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”

The Process of Coming to Christ

Coming to Christ is a personal journey that generally involves these steps:

  1. Recognition of Sin: Acknowledge that you have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23).
  2. Repentance: Turn away from your sins and seek God’s forgiveness (Acts 3:19).
  3. Belief in Christ: Believe in Jesus Christ, His death, and resurrection as the atonement for your sins (John 3:16).
  4. Confession of Faith: Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9).
  5. Rebirth in the Spirit: Experience spiritual rebirth as you receive the Holy Spirit, marking the beginning of your new life in Christ (John 3:5-6).

  3. How can I know that I am saved? Assurance of salvation comes from faith in God’s promises. If you believe in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection, and have confessed Him as your Lord and Savior, the Bible assures you are saved (John 5:24).

Coming to Christ is the most significant step in one’s spiritual journey. Being born again or saved marks the beginning of a lifelong relationship with God, defined by continual growth and commitment. As a new believer, embrace the grace of God, deepen your faith, and allow the Holy Spirit to transform you as you walk this divine path.
