How to Know Christ Personally
Every person can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Getting to know Him involves three steps.
First step: Realize We Each Have A Problem
All of us who have been born on this side of the Garden of Eden
have the same basic problem in our lives. The Bible identifies that
problem as ‘sin’.
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
Sin stains the soul, scars the spirit, and separates from God.
Second Step: Recognize Jesus Is The Only Solution To Our Problem
None of us are capable of solving the sin problem in our own life. Because we
all have the same sin problem, we cannot solve one another’s problem. The
only solution for this problem would be to have someone who was sinless to
solve it on our behalf. This is where Jesus provides the solution. He was sinless.
He willingly took our place on the cross and paid the price for our sin problem
to be solved.
“But God demonstrates His love to us, in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
It is not enough that we realize we have a problem and that Jesus is the solution.
We must take the next step.
Third Step: Receive Jesus Personally As Our Savior and Lord
Salvation, God’s solution to our sin problem, is a gift that is offered to every person.
However, unless a gift is received, it just remains a gift offered.
“The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our
Lord.” Romans 6:23
Receiving Jesus Christ personally involves asking Him to come into one’s life to be their Lord.
“For whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13
You can ask Jesus Christ into your life to be your Lord right now.
“Lord Jesus, I realize I am a sinner, I recognize you are the solution, and I
receive you as my Savior and Lord.”
