Practical Christianity (Part 2)


Getting Started

​The simple truth about the Christian faith and living the Christian life is that unlike what so many are being taught today getting saved and becoming a disciple of Christ is neither complicated nor difficult.  In fact it is quite easy providing we learn to do one  simple thing:

(Rom 12:1)  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

(Rom 12:2)  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


​In the very beginning of their respective ministries, the very first thing that both John the Baptist and our Lord Jesus call for is Repentance.

(Rom 12:1)  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

(Rom 12:2)  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

​(Mat 3:1)  In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judea,

(Mat 3:2)  And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.



​(Mat 4:17)  From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

(Mat 4:17)  From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

In the Greek, to repent (μετανοέω - metanoeō) literally means to think differently or afterwards, that is, to reconsider a thing.  In other words repentance is literally renewing the mind!
