Overview

Becoming a Christian means more than entering into a personal relationship with God. We are entering into a legal relationship with God through Christ our representative and our head. A Christian is so united to Christ that God has already (past tense) raised us up with Christ. Every other religious founder came to show the way to God. Only Jesus Christ ever claimed that He is the way to God.

Ephesians 2:4–10

When we meet Jesus, our lives change dramatically – it’s as if we’ve moved from being spiritually dead to truly alive, and from being controlled by our sins to being in charge. This shows that being a Christian isn’t just about being a bit better, it’s a total transformation. This deep change happens because of our connection with Jesus, the way our minds change, and the shift that happens inside when we become Christians. All these things remind us that it’s God’s grace and our faith that save us. When we truly understand how much God loves us, we stop worrying about ourselves and become free. This leads us to do good things, not because we have to, but out of love and thankfulness for what Jesus has done for us.
