How do you know if you're a Christian?

Do you believe in God? Do you believe in Jesus? Do you know the Lord's Prayer? Do you go to church? Do you pray? Are you a kind and generous person? If you have answered "yes" to these questions, that's wonderful. BUT THERE'S MORE TO CONSIDER!
Do you have a relationship with God by LIVING as He taught us in the Bible? Do you think you are a sinner? (See 1 John chapter 1 verse 8: "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and there is no truth in us") Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God...and have you received Him as your PERSONAL Saviour? Three more "yes" answers? You are a Christian.
When you sought to live as God taught us, admitted you were a sinner who could not make yourself fit for heaven, and accepted Jesus Christ as the Saviour of the world and YOUR Saviour, you were "born again". We are all born first of all physically when we come into this world and spiritually when we "declare with our mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in our heart that God raised Him from death". (See Romans ch 10 verse 9). Then the Holy Spirit of God takes up residence in us. We are made right with the holy God by His FREE GIFT OF LOVE! And He will never, ever leave us. (See John ch 10 verse 28: "I give them eternal life, and they shall never die. No one can snatch them away from me"). Of course we die physically, but we will go immediately to heaven to be with our Lord.
