How Can I Become A Child Of God?

How can I become a child of God?

To become a child of God, it takes you to

1. believe Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the one who died for your sins (believe the gospel),

2. Feel remorse for your sins (Repentance).

3.  Born again (Baptism of water and of the Spirit) which leads to salvation.

4. Live a righteous life and bear fruits unto the Lord.

We were once in the darkness and only the word of God which is the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ that made us aware of the darkness we were in.

But through His message ,He gave us the Light that we will come out of the darkness and show forth praises of Him.

Jesus Christ whom GOD sent to this world is the WORD and also the saviour. If you don’t believe Him you cannot be saved.

Mark 16:16
[16]He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

If you reject the word of God or if you don’t have faith in the word, you are not wealthy to be a child of God.
When you believe Him, He gives you the power to become the child of God through the blood of Jesus Christ which makes us adopted children.

John 1:10-14
[10]He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
[11]He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
[12]But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
[13]Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
[14]And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Indeed Christ Jesus was the only son but through Him, we are also made sons and daughters as we believe Him.

Believing is having faith in the Lord.

You believing Him means, you understand Him and you have faith in Him.

[16]For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
[17]For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
[18]He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
[19]And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
[20]For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
[21]But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

REPENTANCE

After believing the gospel, you feel remorse of the sins you’ve committed.

You humbly consider your ways unjust in the sight of the Lord.

After believing the gospel, then you confess all your sins and accept Him as your Lord and personal saviour.

Jesus Christ, who is the word of God came because of sinners, that they will also get access to the Father and gain the kingdom of God.

Matthew 9:13
[13]But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

Romans 3:23
[23]For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Initially every flesh is corrupted because of sin. Sin is a seed that lives in man. Living in sin means that you are death and you are not a child of God.

Romans 6:23
[23]For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Who is the gift of God?
The gift of God is Jesus  Christ the saviour.

Every sinner is not alive in the Spirit.
But He sent His only begotten Son that we will become alive.

So repentence is the accepetance of ones mistakes and the regretting of the sins.

Anyone who has not repented has perished.

Luke 24:46-47
[46]And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
[47]And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

SALVATION (BORN AGAIN)
You can only be saved when you are born again.

Believing the gospel leads to repentence and repentence leads to salvation.

John 3:3-7
[3]Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
[4]Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
[5]Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
[6]That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
[7]Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Salvation means being saved from sins.
This great deliverence is made when your sins are forgiven through the blood of Jesus Christ, when you born of the Spirit.

Jesus Christ told Nicodemus that unless he is born of the Spirit and of the water , he cannot see the kingdom of God.

When you get the Spirit of God, which Jesus Christ sent unto us (the gift of Jesus Christ) you become one with Christ Jesus and God.

Without His Spirit in you, you cannot walk with Him.

For you have to walk in the Spirit who reveals the truth unto us and also teaches all things.

His Spirit gives us and make us posses the personality of God who is Spirit.

Romans 8:14-17
[14]For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
[15]For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
[16]The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
[17]And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Before a man can understand the things of the Spirit, he needs the Spirit. Without the Spirit of God, you cannot posses the character of God.

1 Corinthians 2:13-16
[13]Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
[14]But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
[15]But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
[16]For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

How do the Spirit of God gives us the mind of Christ?
He gives us through His personality.

Galatians 5:22-24
[22]But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
[23]Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
[24]And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Hallelujah!

Baptism of the water symbolises that you have died and resurrected with Christ Jesus.

Matthew 3:11
[11]I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

BEAR FRUIT
The last way is to live a righteous life and bear fruit unto the Lord. 
You should be an important vessel that the Lord can use to change others . Be a child/servant of God that God through can save others and praise the Lord. 
You can’t just bear fruit but you need the Holy Spirit. So after the Holy Spirit baptism, you get understanding of the Word of God. This is because, the word of God is Spirit. 
Without God’s Spirit, you can never understand the things of God. 
Matthew 13:23
[23]But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
To bear fruit, you have to be someone who study the word of God, pray and preach the gospel unto others or help propagate the gospel unto other places.
John 15:7-8
[7]If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
[8]Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
God does not like a Christian who is spiritually stunted in growth but rather the one who is matured in faith in the Spirit.
The word of God is very important to keep right relationship with God, prayers is also the way you can communicate with God. 
Without studying the word, or keeping the word of God in you and living a righteous life, your prayers become meaningless. 
You have share the gospel unto others for it is a command. 
Every disciple (Christian) in the old time following Jesus Christ were also propagating the gospel and with so doing, God continue to increase them. Holiness, righteousness and sanctification is very important. 
Do not let anything hinder you from bearing the good fruit. 
Sing spiritual songs and let your heart be the dwelling place of the Spirit of the Lord. Your body is the temple of God.
Ephesians 5:1-21
[1]Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
[2]And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
[3]But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
[4]Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
[5]For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
[6]Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
[7]Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
[8]For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
[9](For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
[10]Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
[11]And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
[12]For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
[13]But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
[14]Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
[15]See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
[16]Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
[17]Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
[18]And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
[19]Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
[20]Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
[21]Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
God richly bless you in Jesus name.
