10 Reasons Why: I'm Glad to be a Christian
1st: I'm saved! ...hallelujah I'm saved. Eph. 2:8-9.
2nd: I'm a Child of God! I Thank God for loving me and accepting me as His own! The truth is: Not everyone is a child of God. I've heard many people say that everybody is really a child of God. When you hear someone say that: realize they do not understand what the the Bible says about this. It teaches us that there are different children in the world! Let's see what it says: Gal. 3:26; Eph. 5:1 and 6; Col. 3:6; 1 John 3:10 and 5:2. Ok, now, ...is everyone a Child of God? NO. But, I'm glad to be one aren't you?
3rd: I'm redeemed! Ps. 31:5; 107:2; Gal. 3:13; and Rev. 5:9
4th: My sins are forgiven! Acts 13:28; Eph. 1:7.
5th: I'm a new creature! II Cor. 5:17; Col. 3:10. When we repent of our sins and place our faith in Jesus Christ alone...God changes us from the inside out. His presence in us transforms us from the old man into the new! Glory to God.
6th: I'm an heir! H E I R: Rom. 8:17; Gal. 4:7...oh it's good to be a Christian. Believers are heirs of the "promise," "heirs of righteousness," "heirs of the kingdom," "heirs of the world," "heirs of God,"and "joint heirs" with Christ who is the heir of all things! (Gal 3:29; Heb. 6:17; 11:7; James 2:5; Rom. 4:13; 8:17).
7th: God gives me strength to face life's challenges!
Psalms 62:7; Psalms 73:26; Prov. 10:29a; II Cor 12:9; Phil 4:13.
8th: God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit are in me!
God: 2 Cor. 6:16; 1 Jn 4:12; I Jn 4:15:
Christ: Gal. 2:20; Col. 1:27
The Holy Spirit: 1 Cor. 6:19
9th: Because I have God's Word! It's a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. It's my joy and daily privilege to go to it and read it, study it, believe it and do what it says! In it I find wisdom, hope, direction and understanding for yesterday, today and tomorrow. Thank you God for giving us your word.
10th: I know that God hears my Prayers! The Psalmist was confident that God heard his prayers and as a Christian I am confident that when we pray God will hear our prayers as well.
- Psalms 6:9: The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.
- Psalms 66:19: But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
- Psalms 116:1: I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.
