Now the most wonderful journey of your life begins! Yes, you may grow slowly at first, but that's OK. For most people, relationships develop slowly. They grow gradually. You may want to consider this suggestion to help you. Whenever you feel like it, just start talking to God through Jesus. You don't have to use some special words or go to some special place to pray. Just talk to Him like you would do when talking to a friend. He's always listening! Then let God talk to you through His Word, the pages of the Bible, especially the four Gospels. Try to read your Bible every day so you can see what God wants you to do and how to live your life. Listen to what God has to say to you in the Scriptures. Learn about His love for you. Get to know Him in a personal way. Your Savior will be there for you....no matter what!
Not only can you get to know Him through talking to Him and reading His words, you can also meet Him in Christians in whom He lives. You will want to find a Sabbath keeping church where you can be baptized, a very important step in the life of a new Christian. The Bible is very clear that Baptism by immersion in water should follow your repentance.
"Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." (Acts 2:38)
You will be able to meet with other Christians at church who share the same values and goals as you. Your relationships with fellow Christians will help you to grow closer to God everyday. You will have the opportunity to learn about God and His Kingdom.
After you are Baptized God will send the Holy Spirit to you to empower you to obey Him and walk with Him in total submission. You need the power of the Holy Spirit to resist temptation from the devil and to help you develop the character of God. Your goal is to be like Jesus, thinking, acting, feeling, and loving others like Him. Your past sins have been forgiven but now you have to use God's power to resist future temptations. Don't be fooled by those who claim you are "once saved always saved." God's Grace covers your past sins but it it not a license to sin all you want in the future. See "The Bible Says" on the main menu if you want to know more about this and the Kingdom of Heaven you will be in when Christ returns.
Remember, you don't have to go it alone anymore. You can call upon God any time and He will be there for you. No matter what you do, He will always be there for you. That's His promise to you!
"....for the Lord your God goes with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you."(Deuteronomy 31:6)
