Becoming and Being a Christian

Introduction

        The choice to become a Christian is one involving a long-term commitment. Any unbalanced or incomplete approach will fail to achieve success. The nature of the commitment is, therefore, a vital concern.

        Consider the progression toward union with Jesus and how this influences everything that follows.

  • Becoming a Christian—I Timothy 6:12-13; Philippians 4:8; Mark 7:20-23.
  • Being a Christian—Matthew 10:32-33.
