Believe in Jesus - an illustration of John 3:16 by Anchor Lines, a Christian Webcomic

There is no entrance test to Christianity. No minimum standard, no moral high bar. Some of the earliest Christians include a former murderer, prostitute, and convicted thief. Nothing you have done – no dirty secret, hidden shame or lifelong guilt – could prevent you from taking hold of the forgiveness and salvation that God offers you. Following Jesus is simple, at its heart – believe in Jesus.

Believe that the Bible is telling the truth when it speaks of God becoming man; when it describes his sinless life, his death on the cross, his resurrection from the grave and his return to Heaven.

Believe that he loves you enough to die in your place – to take the punishment you were due, and offer forgiveness you could not earn.

Believe that there is no way to Heaven except through him

And believe that he is coming back

Belief in Jesus is a powerful thing. It leads to an understanding of who we are, and why we are here. It leads to a recognition of our failings before a perfect God, and yet that he loves us and has given himself to pay the price for us. It leads us to repentance, turning our back on our sinful desires and choosing to make him lord. It offers hope, peace, joy, and eternal life with the one who loves you without limitation or reserve.

Ask God if he is real, and let him lead you to the truth: believe in Jesus.
