Becoming a Christian is something that happens both in an instant and a lifetime.
It only takes an instant to see one’s need of grace and forgiveness of sin, from a Holy, Glorious God.
It only takes an instant to believe in Jesus as the atoning sacrifice for sin, who died and was raised to life again, and has ascended to God the Father.
It only takes an instant to trust Jesus for salvation and receive the Holy Spirit who indwells every Christian.
It takes a lifetime to be transformed by God’s grace.
It takes a lifetime to learn about the Good News of Jesus from the Bible, to know Jesus, and the power of his resurrection.
It takes a lifetime to follow Jesus, walking in step with the Holy Spirit, who joins us with other members of Christ’s body, the church.
