How to Come to Christ

For those who are newbie Christians like me before, you sometimes ask yourselves, “How do I come to Christ?” You can feel uncertain or hesitant about what “coming to Christ” means, and if you are doing it right. But the truth is, coming to Christ is simpler than we might think.

The natural man is sinful and perverse, and Satan uses this to his advantage. We often excuse our slowness to believe in the Lord by saying, “If only we could have seen Him in the flesh and witnessed His miraculous works, then we would believe.”

But the truth is, those who lived in the time of Christ had far greater difficulties in their faith. They had to believe in Jesus as the true Messiah, despite His rejection by society and His unassuming appearance.

Nowadays, Satan has shifted his tactics and confuses us with questions like, “What does it mean to come to Christ?” We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and the Savior of the world, but for new believers, they struggle with how to come to Him.

We wonder if it’s a complex mental process, a high spiritual attainment, or an elusive feeling that We need to attain before we can come to Him.

However, the truth is much simpler than we think. It’s only our self-righteous tendencies that make us believe that coming to Christ is a complex process.

Christ Himself never explained the meaning of the word “Come” because it was so simple. It’s only our lack of appreciation for who Christ is that makes us hesitate. When we occupy our minds with thoughts of Christ, we come to Him. It’s as simple as that.

What is Coming to Christ?

To come to Christ means to be completely engrossed in thoughts about Him. When we are in such a state of mind, we have left behind all other things. We have no other desires or concerns, and Christ is the only one we care for. This state of mind is what it means to come to Him.

It’s important to understand that coming to Christ is not a one-time event, but a continual process. We don’t come to Christ once and then forget about Him. Instead, we must strive to keep our minds occupied with thoughts of Him constantly.

The Benefits of Coming to Christ

When we come to Christ, we experience a profound transformation in our lives. Our thoughts, desires, and actions begin to align with His will. We experience peace, joy, and fulfillment that we could never achieve on our own.

Here are some of the benefits of coming to Christ:

  1. Forgiveness of sins – When we come to Christ, He forgives our sins and cleanses us from all unrighteousness. We no longer have to carry the burden of guilt and shame.
  2. Peace – We experience a deep sense of peace that surpasses all understanding. Our hearts are no longer troubled, and we can rest in the knowledge that Christ is in control.
  3. Joy – We experience a joy that is not dependent on our circumstances. Even in the midst of trials and tribulations, we can rejoice because we know that Christ is with us.
  4. Fulfillment – We find true fulfillment in Christ. We no longer have to search for meaning and purpose in life because we have found it in Him.
  5. Transformation – We are transformed from the inside out. Our thoughts, desires, and actions begin to align with Christ’s will. We become more loving, more patient, more kind, and more like Him.

How to Come to Christ

Now that we understand what it means to come to Christ and the benefits of doing so, let’s explore how we can come to Him.

  1. Admit your need for Christ – Acknowledge that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior. The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Recognize that your sins separate you from God and that you cannot save yourself.
  2. Believe in Christ – Believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and rose from the dead. The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
  3. Confess your faith in Christ – Confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior of your life. The Bible says, “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).
  4. Repent of your sins – Repentance means turning away from your sins and turning towards God. The Bible says, “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19).
  5. Seek guidance from others – Find a church or a community of believers who can help guide you in your new faith. The Bible says, “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching” (Hebrews 10:24-25).

Final Words

In conclusion, coming to Christ is a personal and life-changing decision that requires faith and a willingness to follow Him. It involves recognizing our need for a savior, confessing our sins, and trusting in Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross to redeem us.

When we come to Christ, we receive forgiveness of our sins, the gift of eternal life, and a relationship with God. This relationship brings us peace, joy, and purpose as we live our lives according to His will.

While the decision to come to Christ is ultimately up to us, God invites us to come to Him and promises to welcome us with open arms. So if you have not yet come to Christ, I encourage you to take that step today and experience the love and Grace of God in your life.

Remember, no matter who you are or what you’ve done, Jesus is always ready to receive you and offer you a new life in Him.
