Advice in becoming in a Christian and believing in Christ

Users who viewed this discussion (Total:2)

Hello, I am sorry but I am new so I am not sure if this post is appropriate on here. Also I want to appolgise as this will be a long post. Sorry.

So, for introduction purposes, hi I am Indian-British 16 year old. I was raised up as being a Sikh, so i was always knew the existance of God however never in Jesus.
For a while i became fully aware the bible and recently I became very interested to become a Christian.
However, I am just a 16 year old girl who has up coming exams (GCSES) as well as a family who are strongly religious in Sikhism and asking advice of converting will lead to conflict. So I am in a awkward pickle but i dont see as a big issue..
However, in the beginning to convert to Christianity I knew I was immediately viewed as awful sinner.
So when praying forgiveness from God and admit to him that I was a sinner. I knew I have to put my faith into Jesus.
But considering I was never brought up into believing in Jesus, i do not know how to have faith in Christ.
I normally try to force myslef to believe, but for some reason it never really workes as i always believe Jesus as being unreal, which always makes me sad and full of despair because i want to believe and my faith into Christ so badly.
There are sometimes there are these feelings of me being aware of Jesus existance and he died for our sins from this i get unconditionally happy and relieved of me believing in Jesus. But these feelings immediately go, leaving me in the sad and confused again.

So thats my problem right now, i really do not know what to do, thanks for reading my problematic situation and sorry for making longer this longer than its needs to be.

Hello Jay and welcome to the forums and of course, the family of Christ.

This is what Jesus says about faith. There’s no complex formula or such.

Matthew 17:20

He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
