How to Become a Christian [Romans 10:9 Daily Devotional]

“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Romans 10:9

For those who are on the fence about becoming Christian, this verse explains how to take that next step. And for those who have been a Christian for a while can be encouraged in this verse because it explains that our faith is not a complicated one. It doesn’t take a lot to become a Christian because Jesus did all the hard work for us already.

How to Become a Christian

Romans 10:9 explains the exact process for you to become a Christian. Simply believe God raised Jesus from the dead and confess him as Lord. These are simple, but I know it can be hard for some people to make that leap of faith. I pray that you would.

Now, what about those who have been Christian for a long time? This verse is a reminder to you that humans can tend to overcomplicate things. There are a lot of variations of rules-based Christianity that set barriers to entry to the kingdom of God. However, we can rest assured knowing that those barriers are man-made. There are only two things that you need to come back to in order to recenter your faith in Jesus. Just declare with your mouth and believe in your heart.


Jesus, thank you for providing us such a simple faith. Help me to recenter my life on you instead of the complicated nature of life that I often experience. Give me the courage to come back to that simple faith. It’s in your name I pray, amen.
