Knowing Christ

1 Corinthians 9:22-23 "I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in it's blessings."

We at the Rick and Bubba Show proclaim the following Biblical worldview:

  • We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God; that it is his holy and inspired Word; and that it is the supreme and final authority in doctrine and practice.
  • We believe in one God, existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord and Jesus Christ, Born of the Virgin Mary.
  • We believe Christ led a sinless life; took upon Himself all our sins; died and rose again; is seated at the right hand of God the Father, and is coming again in power and glory.
  • We believe all men are lost and face the righteous judgment of God and need to receive Jesus Christ in their heart by faith and repentance through his shed blood on the cross.
  • We believe Christ rose from the dead and is coming again.
  • We believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and eternal life.
  • We believe in holy Christian living and that we must have concern for the social issues of others.
  • We believe in the unity of the body of Christ, composed of all those who have received Christ into their heart.
  • We believe in taking the gospel to all parts of the world by preaching salvation, producing disciples and partnering with Christian leaders around the globe.

KNOWING CHRIST

In a survey that was taken, the question was asked, what is a three word sentence that you would most like to hear? How would you answer that question? The number one answer was I love you. Would you like to know that you are loved? The sentence that came in second was I forgive you. Is it possible that you want to have peace in your heart?

Maybe you are looking for a ray of hope for your life, a reason to live. There is a Person that can fill your life with love, hope, joy, and forgiveness. He wants to bring fulfillment to your life. He wants to have a personal relationship with you every day. His name is Jesus.

 

Sharing the Faith wants to help you explore how you can know Christ personally.

  1. Recognize God's Plan - Peace and Life
    The message you have just read stressed that God loves you and wants you to experience His peace and life. The Bible says ...“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
  2. Realize Our Problem - Separation
    People choose to disobey God and go their own way. This result is separation from God. The Bible says ...“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
  3. Respond to God's Remedy - The Cross
    God sent His Son to bridge the gap. Christ did this by paying the penalty for our sins when He died on the cross and rose from the grave. The Bible says ...“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
  4. Receive Christ - As Lord and Savior
    You cross the bridge into God’s family when you prayerfully ask Christ to come into your life. 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.”John 1:12

HOW TO RECEIVE CHRIST

  1. Admit your need (I am a sinner).
  2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent).
  3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave.
  4. Through prayer, invite Jesus Christ to come in and control your life through the Holy Spirit (receive Him as Lord and Savior).

PRAYER OF COMMITMENT

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and I need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I want to turn from my sins. I now invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

The Rick & Bubba Show is committed to encourage new believers in their walk with the Lord. We believe there are four fundamental parts in beginning and maintaining an Intimate Walk with Christ.

  1. Prayer: You can not have a relationship with anyone with out conversations. Christ desires that you communicate daily with him through prayer.
  2. The Bible: This is the road map for all Christians. Reading and studying the Bible brings people to a greater understanding of who Christ is.
  3. Worship: Find a local church where Christ is preached that you can grow in as you become active in both fellowship with other believers and service to others.
  4. Witness: It should be our desire to share the gift that we have been given with others.
