This is a podcast episode titled, How to Become a Christian | Learning to Follow Jesus | Luke. The summary for this episode is: "There's kind of a disconnect between the way we talk about how somebody begins a relationship with Jesus and how Jesus actually talked to people. We make it about this moment of asking people to be our Savior, but that's not the way Jesus talks." If someone asks you how to become a Christian, what do you say? Do you tell them to&nbsp;pray a prayer that accepts Jesus as Lord and Savior? It's a common answer, but https://www.thecrossingchurch.com/staff/patrick-miller/ (Patrick) and https://www.thecrossingchurch.com/staff/keith-simon/ (Keith) explain what's wrong with it in this episode as they introduce our new series: Learning to Follow Jesus. Join us as we go through the Gospel of Luke to learn how to become a Christian and what that really means. In this episode, we talk about the bigger story of the Bible.
