Now that you have accepted the gift of salvation now what? In all honesty, LIFE begins a new. The past is the past no matter what you have done and the journey is ahead of you. What journey are you talking about? Your WALK with Christ!
Now is the time for you to search out perhaps a Church that follows Biblically principles and find a Bible that you like because you will be spending a lot of time in it. This is hard but not as hard as it will be to follow Christ! Learn and read all you can! Ask questions because there are many that you will have and seek fellow believers! These are just stepping-stones in your journey!
You may come across this site and you see all this talk about a God or Savior and wonder why this group of people are so excited about this person. Or you want to follow this man but are not quite sure how to do it.
Let me tell you a little story….I went to church when I was little and I didn’t really know who God was. This was a place my parents wanted me to go too and we all want to please our parents. I didn’t come to know him without help. So now is the time for me to help others know who he is and then make the choice on your own to follow him.
A friend gave me a book called, “Left Behind” and the title tells it all, but I wanted to know what it really meant so I read it and never look back. When I say I never looked back I mean I excepted the gift that God had for me. You say how do I know what that gift is? I have so many questions? What happens after I do all this?
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
When I accepted the gift I was on my bed and I prayed this prayer:
I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don’t please you. I have lived my life for myself. I am sorry and I repent. I ask you to forgiveme. I believe that you died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now and ask you to take control of my life, I give it to you. Help me to live every day in a way that pleases you. I love you, Lord, and I thank you that I will spend all eternity with you.
