First Step & Next Steps

 

 

First Step

Pray sincerely to get right with God

If you did not pray with total sincerity the prayer in blue letters at the bottom of the home page, then do so now. Please do not think you must do something or stop doing something before God will accept you. The Bible tells us, "... now is the day of salvation." God loves us and accepts us now where we are at. Over time we can expect His Holy Spirit to encourage us and help us become more Christ-like.

 

Then note the date you prayed in your Bible or somewhere else because this what the Bible calls your new life with God (2 Corinthians 5:17).

 

Next Steps

Get more from life and a relationship with God

 

1. Pray daily. God wants you to have the right desires and He promises to help you to get your good godly desires met. As you know fulfilled desires brings great inner lasting joy.  Psalm 37:4  Matt 6:25-33

Caution: God's promises always come true, but often not when we want or the way we expect.

 

2. Read the Bible frequently. It is hard to overstate the benefits people get from reading the Bible. There is no greater wisdom than what is found in the Bible! Proverbs 2:6, James 1:5  And the Bible tells us, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." During our lifetimes, we will face many problems. The time is now to prepare for future problems by asking the Holy Spirit for help in understanding the Bible. Click here for your choice in Bible reading plans to read the Bible in one year. Here is a checklist to read the Bible in one year.

 

I personally think it is best to start by reading the first book of the New Testament, "Matthew." Then read the first two books of the Bible (Genesis and Exodus) to help you understand who the main characters are throughout the Bible. Then read all of the New Testament and then read the whole Bible from where you finished Exodus. Realize nobody fully understands the Bible the first time they read it. So pray for understanding and plow through and plan to understand more later as you re-read it. As you read the Bible for the 2nd time, it gets even more exciting as you understand much more and see God's promises work in your life!!!

 

3. Tell others that you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior. Romans 10:9-11

 

4. Encourage others to get right with God so they can be confident they will end up in heaven. This is what Jesus calls The Great Commission. Send text messages and email messages to friends, family and co-workers saying:      I found the most important thing in life and I want you to be confident you will have a very good eternity in heaven and not be in jeopardy of spending eternity in hell.

5. Find a good Bible-teaching church to go to learn more about a relationship with God and to meet new genuine friends. If you have friends who drag you into sin, you need to convert them or leave them. Proverbs 13:20

 

6. Get baptized by immersion. All baptisms in the Bible are of adults (not babies) being immersed in water (not sprinkled). When my parents had me baptized as a baby I only got wet. It did nothing for me spiritually because I was not at an age of accountability.  Mark 16:16  Click here for more Bible verses about baptism.
