Am I Really a Christian?


Really?? Everyone has questions when it comes to knowing and understanding our faith and the difference that it makes in our lives. In this two part series, we are tackling two fundamental questions that every Christian must have the answer to: Am I really a Christian? and Is Christianity really the only way? The goal of this series is to help students understand what it really means to be a follower of Jesus and how they can know that Christianity is really the only way despite the continual message from our culture that truth is relative and that "all roads lead to Heaven".

PDF Version

  1. Who was at Wake this weekend and can recap what Sean talked about? Sean talked about two sets of questions this weekend. We are going to discuss our answers tonight!

  2. If you were to die today, on a scale of 1-10, how confident are you that you would be going to Heaven?
    (These first 2 questions are to help frame the rest of your discussion and give you a feel for where your students are.)

  3. If God were to ask you, "Why should I let you into Heaven?", what would you say?
    -Christ alone
    -Works + Faith

  4. Read 1 John 1:8-10. Have you confessed your sins to God and admitted your need for Him?

  5. Read Romans 10:9-10. Have you confessed and believed that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is the only acceptable sacrifice for your sins?

  6. Read 1 John 4:15 and Luke 9:23. Have you believed that Jesus Christ is the person whose leadership you should follow for all your life, and committed to doing so?

  7. Read Galatians 5:22. Can you see any evidence in your life of growth in Christ (apart from general maturity that comes with age)?
    - Increased love for God, increased desire to pursue Him, love for His people, rejection of sin and movement towards what Scripture calls us to

  8. Read John 13:35. Would people who know you say that love for other people is obvious in your life?

  9. Read 1 John 3:6 and Romans 7:22- 25. When you think about the struggles, sins, habits, and hangups in your life, how do you view them?
    - Ongoing, habitual, and unrepentant sin is evidence of not being in Christ

  10. Based on this discussion, how would you answer the question: Am I Really a Christian? Read 1 John 5:11-13. You can KNOW you have eternal life today if you put your faith in Christ alone.
