We are so excited that you have decided to begin a relationship with God through Jesus Christ!
Inviting Jesus into your life is the most important decision you will ever make. John 3:16 tells us, “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.”
However, receiving Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord not only makes a difference for your eternal destiny, it also has immediate ramifications for your life now. The Bible promises, “Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
You are now a new person in Christ! Jesus wants you to become aware of all the resources He has already made available to you so you can achieve your true potential. There are blessings for you to experience now as well as in heaven!
So what’s next?
Now that you are a Christian, you need a basic understanding about what Jesus is giving you for your spiritual journey. It is important you discover what the Bible says about God, life and eternity.
God is your loving Father and He planned and designed you to be His child for all eternity. He has a specific job for you to do and He wants your life to fit in with His master plan. God wants you to advance His purposes. He wants you to live in such a way that you will experience His best.
In the Old Testament book of Jeremiah, we find these words, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
God’s plan for you is better than anything you can devise. Ask Him to show you what that plan is and pursue it wholeheartedly.
