How to believe in Jesus:
“The Bible tells us that there are three kinds of people” 1 Corinthians 2:12-3:4
1. Natural Person (Someone who has not received Jesus and lives a self-directed life.)
The 1st step of obedience is to believe in Jesus and be transformed from a Natural Person to a Spiritual Person.
The 2nd step of obedience after receiving Jesus as your personal Savior is to be baptized. Jesus was baptized so that God could reveal to John that Jesus was the Son of God; for God to confirm verbally from heaven that Jesus was His Son in whom He was well pleased and to set an example for future believers in Him. (John 1:31-34, Mark 1:9-11, Luke 3:21-22, Matthew 3:13-17)
The 3rd step is become involved in the community of believers at your church and find someone to begin the one-on-process process of teaching you the commands of Jesus. This process helps you develop an intimate fellowship with Jesus and minimizes the time you are a Carnal Person.
3. Carnal Person KJV or Fleshly NASB (One who has received Jesus, but who lives in defeat because of trying to live the Christian life in their own strength.) Go here for How to Walk With The Holy Spirit Daily
