Why you should become a Christian?

Everywhere religious people always claim that their God is a loving God, the Compassionate. Jesus is the point of contact between Muslims and Christians.

Who is Jesus?

As a Muslim, you might say, Jesus is not God, the Son of God, or someone who died on the cross. What does the Qur'an say about Jesus? Who are the real followers of Jesus? Qur'an only provide an atmosphere of doubt as to whether a person will enter Paradise or not. How can I be sure I? It seems only God of the Bible alone is able to show it. Jesus is more than a great teacher, more than just a great healer, is more than just a great prophet. Remember what Jesus said: He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth belongs to the earth, and of the earth he speaks; he who comes from heaven is above all. He bears witness to what he has seen and heard (John 3:31).

Can good deeds give us a place in heaven?

According to the teachings of Islam, Allah determines the safety problems without telling the man whether he would go to heaven or hell. Do Christians have the assurance will enter Paradise? Yes. salvation for mankind is only provided by Jesus Christ, the Word of God. You must understand that your sins have separated you from God. Sin is failure to berse-mutatis to the moral law of God in action, behavior or nature. If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Indeed, there is no one on earth who is righteous, no one who does what is right and never sins. The result of sin is very serious. The punishment for sin is death. You are guilty and exposed to the death penalty. You can not save yourself. Even good deeds can not even guarantee you can pass safely into Paradise. Listen to what the Bible says: For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law“ (Galatians 3:10). The Qur'an denies that Muhammad could be a mediator for a Muslim in order to enter Paradise (Qur'an 7: 188, 4: 123, 9:80). A Muslim does not have the assurance of the forgiveness for all their sins. You are in the same condition with Abraham's son. Could it be that God has provided a substitute sacrifice for your sins? Yes, God has given it, Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29). You have to accept that only the sacrifice of Jesus Christ alone can remove your sins. Jesus rose from the dead, as He foretold, and is the Savior of the world. Jesus alone conquered death: I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me will live even if he is dead (John 11:25). Jesus is now alive, and He wants you to trust Him and know Him. God is calling you to come out of darkness and into His light, Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me (Revelation 3:20). The Bible says, Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God (John 1:12-13). And Jesus said, Whoever hears my words, and believe in him who sent me, he has eternal life, and does not contribute punished, because he has moved from death into life (John 5:24). Jesus died on the cross for the sins of mankind. Jesus is the Savior of all mankind.

Decide

It is important to understand the differences between Islam and Christianity. The gospel of Jesus contains God's sacrifice for our sins. A Muslim is enough to understand this, that he will be saved by the love and grace of God. Come to Jesus. What should you do to become a Christian? You can pray with simple words following,

Dear Jesus Christ,
Please forgive me of my sins.
Thank you for forgiving my sins.
Come into my heart.
I give my life to You.
Thank you for the gift of eternal life.
Amen.

It's in the Bible: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:9-10).
