"Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian."

 

According to the Bible, things are attributed to Christians that are said of no one else. Please notice a few!

  1. Christians are "Children of God." Gal. 3:26-27
  2. Christians are "Children of Light." Eph. 5:8; 1 Thess. 5:5
  3. Christians have "redemption" through the Blood of Jesus Christ. Eph. 1:7
  4. Christians are called "Disciples." Acts 11:26; John 8:31-32
  5. Christians are known as "Sons of God." Rom. 8:14
  6. Christians are "God's Elect." Rom. 8:33; Col 3:12; 2 Tim. 2:10
  7. Christians are declared to be "Living Epistles." 2 Cor. 3:1-3
  8. Christians are designated to be a "Peculiar people" in a very special sense. 1 Pet. 2:9; 
      Titus 2:14
  9. Christians have become "witnesses." First, the apostles were eye witnesses. Acts 1:8 
      Then, all disciples, through the eye of faith, have become witnesses in what the Scripture 
      says. 1 John 5:9-15
10. The disciples in becoming Christians became the "salt of the earth." Matt. 5:13

King Agrippa, in Acts 26:28, said, "Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian."

In view of all the above, will you now become a Christian?

How does one become a Christian according to scripture?

1.  Hear God's Word. Rom 10:17

2.  Believe in Jesus.  John 8:24;  John 20:30-31

3.  Repent of sins. Luke 13:3, Acts 2:38

4.  Acknowledge your faith. Matt.10:32, Acts 17:30

5.  Be baptized for the remission of sins.  Acts 2:38,
    putting on Christ, Gal.3:26,27, that you may become a Christian, a child of God.
