When I Became a Christian
By Adrian Plass

When I became a Christian I said, Lord, now fill me in,
Tell me what I'll suffer in this world of shame and sin.
He said, your body may be killed, and left to rot and stink,
Do you still want to follow me? I said amen - I think.
I think amen, amen I think, I think I say amen,
I'm not completely sure, can you just run through that again?
You say my body may be killed and left to rot and stink,
Well, yes, that sounds terrific, Lord, I say amen - I think.

But, Lord, there must be other ways to follow you, I said,
I really would prefer to end up dying in my bed.
Well, yes, he said, you could put up with the sneers and scorn and spit,
Do you still want to follow me? I said amen - a bit.
A bit amen, amen a bit, a bit I say amen,
I'm not entirely sure, can we just run through that again?
You say I could put up with sneers and also scorn and spit,
Well, yes, I've made my mind up, and I say, amen - a bit.

Well I sat back and thought a while, then tried a different ploy,
Now, Lord, I said, the Good book says that Christians live in joy.
That's true he said, you need the joy to bear the pain and sorrow,
So do you want to follow me, I said, amen - tomorrow.
Tomorrow, Lord, I'll say it then, that's when I'll say amen,
I need to get it clear, can I just run through that again?
You say that I will need to joy, to bear the pain and sorrow,
Well, yes, I think I've got it straight, I'll say amen - tomorrow.

He said, Look, I'm not asking you to spend an hour with me
A quick salvation sandwich and a cup of sanctity,
The cost is you, not half of you, but every single bit,
Now tell me, will you follow me? I said amen - I quit.
I'm very sorry Lord I said, I'd like to follow you,
But I don't think religion is a manly thing to do.
He said forget religion then, and think about my Son,
And tell me if you're man enough to do what he has done.

Are you man enough to see the need, and man enough to go,
Man enough to care for those whom no one wants to know,
Man enough to say the thing that people hate to hear,
To battle through Gethsemane in loneliness and fear.
And listen! Are you man enough to stand it at the end,
The moment of betrayal by the kisses of a friend,
Are you man enough to hold your tongue, and man enough to cry?
When nails break your body-are you man enough to die?
Man enough to take the pain, and wear it like a crown,
Man enough to love the world and turn it upside down,
Are you man enough to follow me, I ask you once again?
I said, Oh Lord, I'm frightened, but I also said amen.
amen, amen, amen, amen; amen, amen, amen,
I said, Oh Lord, I'm frightened, but I also said, amen.

ON THE CROSS

As I hung there on the cross,
in pain and agony.
With the soldiers casting lots for my raiment,
and the passer bys making fun of me.
I became all of the torment,
that anybody could be.

It doesn't matter what you have done,
or how bad you have been.
If you would only ask me to forgive you.
My sacrifice would take away,
all of the darkness from your life.

Even though you spat in my face,
and called me names.
Whipped me to shreds with a cat-o-nine tails,
and tore my beard from off my face.
Left me to hang there naked to die,
for all the world to see.

I let you do it because I loved you,
and I knew that we would be friends,
and that you would love me too.

WE HAVE A PROBLEM... THE SOLUTION IS AS SIMPLE AS A.B.C





Sin is doing something that we know is wrong, the bible tell us in Romans 3:23 that "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". All - means everyone, the world, man, woman, boy and girl. So the first step is to:

A - ADMIT
We must admit that we have sinned, or done things that displease God. - If not, then our eternal death is certain to be unpleasant - Romans 6:23 "The wages of sin is death (everlasting punishment)."



The Bible tells us that we need a savior, we can't get to heaven on our own. Good works and religion will not get you there. So once we ADMIT we have sinned and admit we need a savior, we must:

B- BELIEVE
Believe that Jesus died on the cross and rose again. His blood was shed to pay for your sins.

The Bible says:

* 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 "Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures."
* Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrates His own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
* John 3:16 "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."

Because Jesus loves you so much, He took the punishment for you so that you can be forgiven. He died on the cross for us, and took a horrible painful death so we could be spared!




Finally, we must:

C- CHOOSE

Choose to trust Jesus alone for the forgiveness of your sins.

The Bible says:

* Romans 10:13 "Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
* John 3:18 "He who believes in Him (Jesus) is not condemned."

When you trust in Jesus Christ alone to save you, God forgives you! You become His child, and He promises you a home in heaven forever! Put your trust in Jesus as your Savior from sin. Do it today, and begin following Him by obeying His Word, the Bible.

You simply need to talk to God, and include the above three items, and tell him you want him to overtake your life and dwell in your heart. The following is a sample prayer, please do it in your own words - -- God wants to hear from you!! You are his precious child.

Dear Jesus,

I now confess to You all of the wrong and sinful things that I have ever done in my life. I ask that You please forgive me and wash away all of my sins by the blood that You have personally shed for me on the cross. I am now ready to accept You as my personal Lord and Savior. I now ask that You come into my life and live with me for all of eternity. -

Please contact us and let us know of your decision! There are a few things which are most important following the most important decision of your life you have just made, they are as follows:

=> You need to go to a church, find a pastor, youth pastor or leader and tell them the decision you made.
=> Baptism is a command Jesus gives us to follow in after we are saved. This DOES NOT SAVE YOU, but it is a commandment we must do. It is a symbol of telling everyone that we have become a Christian, and is a picture of his death, burial, and resurrection.
=> You need to get a bible (If you do not have one, let us know) and start reading it daily and praying daily-
=> Finally, you need to be active in a bible teaching church. If you need to find one in your area, contact us and we can hook you up!

--------- Start in the gospel of John, then read Acts - and then Matthew or Romans! If you contact us we can set you up with a bible reading plan.
