Now that you have believed the Gospel:

that Christ died for your sins

according to the Scripture,

was buried and raised on the third day

according to the Scripture (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

and have asked Jesus Christ

to forgive you of your sins,

what should you do next?


The first thing you need to do is to get a Bible

if you do not already have one.

There are a number of accurate,

easy to understand modern translations.

Then develop a systematic plan for Bible reading.

You wouldn't start any other book in the middle

and then hop from place to place,

so don't do it with the Bible.

The Bible is a collection of 66 books.

For of them, called Gospels,

tell about the life of Jesus.

I would encourage you to read all four of them

in this order, Mark, Luke, Matthew and John

and then read through the

rest of the New Testament.


The second thing you need to do

is to begin praying on a regular basis.

Praying is just talking to God,

and while you do need to be respectful,

you do not need to use special language.

The Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13

    is a great pattern for praying.

Thank God for what He has done for you.

Admit it to Him when you sin

and ask Him to forgive you.

(He promises that He will.)

And ask God for the things you need.


The third thing that you need to do

is to find a good church.

Good churches teach that the entire Bible

is God's Word, talk about why Jesus

died on the cross, and are full of good people

whose lives are being changed

by their relationship with God.

The most obvious evidence that a person is in

a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ

is how they treat people.


Jesus said,

"By this all men will know that you are my disciples,

if you love one another." - John 13:35

If the church has Bible studies or Sunday School

classes for new Christians, try to attend.


There are many exciting things to learn

as you get to know God better.

God has plans for you.

Jesus said

"I have come that they may have life,

and have it to the full."

God "has given us everything we need for life

and godliness through our knowledge of Him.

who called us by His own glory and goodness."

2 Peter 1:3


As you read your Bible,

pray and get involved in a good church,

God will begin to change your life in ways

that you never dreamed were possible and

fill you with love and joy

and peace and real purpose.

May God bless you as you follow Him.

Although we are many miles apart...
 
across the seas,

or on the other side of the world,

we would like to encourage you to be a witness for the Lord.


As you love the Lord, you will want to tell others how to have eternal life.

Together we can help build His kingdom one soul at a time.


The Scripture says,

"...Go ye into all the world,

and preach the gospel to every creature."

   ~ Luke 16:15
