NEXT STEPS

1.  Read the Bible daily

It is God's letter to you. He will speak to you through His Word. If you have never read the Bible, consider starting with the book of John in the Bible.

2.  Talk with God.

He wants to hear from you. He wants you to tell Him your hopes, desires, fears and needs. He wants you to invite him into every day.

3. Fellowship.

Begin to meet with other Christians regularly. Join a church that teaches the Bible and believes that people are saved by grace through faith in Christ alone. 

4.  Find a Good Church.

First, ask the Lord to guide you.  Identify with a Bible-teaching church for worship, instruction, fellowship, and service.  Look for a church where the people love Jesus Christ and serve Him as Lord, and where the doctrine, teaching, and practice of that church are in accordance with the Word of God.   The Bible, as the inspired and infallible Word of God, serves as the final authority and source concerning truth, morality and proper conduct.  

5.  Being free from the penalty of your sin does not mean that you will never sin again.  

It does mean, however, that you are no longer a slave to sin (Romans 6). Now, by the power of God in you through the Holy Spirit, you are able to say no to sin and yes to God’s ways. God will not allow you to be tempted to sin beyond what you can handle and He will provide a way of escape when you are tempted (1 Corinthians 10:13). When you do sin, here are steps to take to get back on God's path:

  • Confess your sin to God (1 John 1:9)
  • Confess your sin to other Christians (1 John 1:7, James 5:16)
  • Repent (turn) from your sin and turn back to Christ (2 Timothy 2:22)
  • Walk with God daily, don’t run or hide from Him. Remember, God loves you! Because of Christ, you will never lose your salvation (Galatians 5:16, John 10:27-29).  Go back to steps 1, 2 and 3 above to reconnect with Him.

6.  Tell others about Jesus.

The invitation from Christ to be forgiven and adopted as a child of God is open to everyone in the world. God wants no one to die separated from Him because of sin. People who do not receive Christ as Savior will not be saved from the penalty of their sins. (Matthew 28:18-20)

GRACE FILLED WORDS:

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’”  

Matthew 7:21-23

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”

John 3:16–18
