NOW THAT YOU HAVE ACCEPTED JESUS

Now That You Have Accepted Jesus

You need to read The Bible daily — The Bible is God’s Word, and as you read from it every day, it will cause you to grow spiritually (2 Timothy 2:15). As you study His Written Word (start with the Gospel of John), He will strengthen your faith, speak to your heart, and give you guidance and direction for every need and decision in your life. God Promises that He will watch over His Word in order to see to it that it is performed. God declares that He has elevated His Word above His Own Name. Trust God’s Word. “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path” (Psalms 119:105).

You need to Pray every day — Prayer is vital to your spiritual growth. God is your Heavenly Father, and He wants to hear from you and have daily fellowship with you. Not only does He Promise to answer your Prayers, but as you Pray He will also provide guidance and spiritual strength. The Bible tells us to “Pray continually,” that is to Pray faithfully every day    (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

You need Christian Fellowship — You should attend church or meet with other Christians in a Fellowship regularly so that your faith can be strengthened by the Teaching of God’s Word, and so you can grow spiritually and be encouraged by the fellowship of other Christians. This Fellowship is where you can go to express your love, faithfulness, and worship to God. Fellowship is also where you can learn what it means to follow Jesus and where Pastors, Teachers, and other Believers can help you and encourage your faith. The Bible warns us not to absent ourselves from Fellowship attendance, because we need the strength and encouragement it brings. “Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together as believers, as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching.”        (Hebrews 10:25).

Keep Looking To Jesus — You must understand that your Salvation is based entirely upon The Work that The Lord Jesus has accomplished in your heart. Jesus Promises to keep you, so just Keep Looking To Jesus. As a new Christian, you must grow in your relationship with God and deepen your faith, so that discouragement, temptation, or trials will never cause you to lose focus and drift away from God. The Bible says that Jesus will one day present you before God, Holy and Unblemished. So Child of God in ALL you do; Keep Looking To Jesus!
