Prayer is just talking to God. Be sure to make time each day to talk to Him about your daily activities, quickly confessing to Him when you do something wrong, asking for His help and thanking Him when He gives it. Remember, God loves you! He is now your Father and you are His child. He longs to hear from you through prayer.
2. Read your Bible.
In prayer you are speaking to God, but through the Bible, God will speak to you. Therefore, make time every day to read it, even if you only read a few verses. Ask God to help you understand what you read. Start with the Gospel of John.
3. Make Christian friends.
As you seek to please God, you will be living differently from most people. It is very important to have Christian friends with whom you can pray and read the Bible. If you are not in a church, ask around to find a good church that loves Jesus and teaches the Bible.
4. Tell others about Jesus.
Ask God to give you opportunities to talk about Jesus with your friends and neighbors, your co-workers and family, letting them know Who He is and what He means to you.
Very soon the devil will try to take away your joy and peace. He will tempt you to doubt the truth of your decision to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ – causing you to sin and fail, convincing you that you can never live the Christian life, so why try. But the Bible says in I John 4:4, “Greater is He (Jesus) that is in you, than he (the devil) that is in the world.” In Romans 8:37 it says, “We are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.”
When you invited Jesus to come into your life, He came in the Person of the Holy Spirit, according to Ephesians 1:13 and Luke 11:13. All that Jesus is, without His physical body, now lives in you, never to leave you or forsake you.
I pray God will bless you with deep assurance, based on your faith in His Word,
that your sins are forgiven,
that you have received eternal life,
that the Holy Spirit of God lives within you,
that Heaven is your Home,
that you are forever the Father’s child,
that whenever the moment comes you are ready to meet Him face to face!
Welcome to His Family!
