In Mark's Gospel (Good News) Jesus Christ called his first disciples or followers when he called them to 'Follow Me'. In order for you to become a Christian you need to recognize Jesus Christ is calling you to Follow Him. How do I do that I hear you ask. In Paul's letter to the church in Rome he says 'If you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord then you will be saved.' Why do I need to be saved then? The problem we all have is that we're separated from God because of the the way we live our lives and ultimately because we're human.
The Bible calls this separation sin and it tells us we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Jesus Christ, God's Son, lived the perfect life and was put to death by wicked men in order that his death could pay the price for my sin and yours. God vindicated him by raising him from death and today Jesus is seated at God's right hand in Heaven interceding for his people. By trusting in Jesus that your sins are forgiven he then unites you with him spiritually such that your life is then hidden in Christ. He will never leave you or forsake you and he promises if you believe in Him you will never die. When Jesus' friend Lazarus had died Jesus said to his sister Martha “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” John 11 vs25-26.
