How do we change our lives?
There are several steps involved:
1. We must understand and believe the Gospel preached by Jesus Christ and his apostles.
2. We must recognise our sinfulness and repent i.e. change the way that we organise our lives.
3. We must be baptised by immersion in water for the forgiveness of our past sins.
4. We must live our lives by Jesus’ commandments as recorded in the New Testament.
After baptism we cannot live a sinless life, but providing we are making a conscious effort to obey Jesus’ commandments, the sins which we commit through weakness will be forgiven by confession in prayer. 1 John 1:7
There is no short cut to changing our lives – we must make ourselves familiar with the Gospel and Jesus’ commandments and obey them. Luke 6:46
