In the first blog post of this series, we addressed the question of how to become a Christian (see previous blog post entitled “Can I become a Christian?”). In this post, we will focus on what we ought to do once we have become a Christian.

The answer is both yes and no. No, in the sense that there aren’t any rituals, rites, ceremonies one has to go through, or laws, rules and regulations that one has to perform in order to become a Christian. From that perspective one cannot become a Christian. The essence of biblical Christianity is that something has been done for you, and you receive and accept that by faith. That, in a nutshell, is how one becomes a Christian.  The question then becomes, what is it that has been done for us, that requires us to receive it by faith?
