Wow, you’ve just made the decision to become a follower of Jesus! You just said “yes” to freedom! You said “yes” to forgiveness! You said “yes” to the love of God! You said “yes” to Heaven and being adopted into God’s family. And you said “yes” to leaving your old ways and entering into new life. Today is the day that you said, “I believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and I’m going to follow His plan for my life.” That changes everything! Out of the many decisions you’ve made throughout your life, this is by far the best and the most important. It is so awesome to know that God loves us and He wants to be with us for all eternity!
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. - John 3:16 NIV
You may be asking, “Where do I go from here? What is my next step?” Those are great questions because being a Christian is bigger than a prayer we pray; it’s a life we live! The next step is to move from just believing in Jesus to becoming a disciple of Jesus. You might be asking what a disciple is. A disciple is simply someone who says, “I want to live the life Jesus has for me.” So we want to take you on a short, seven-day journey to answer some of your questions and help you begin to gain traction as a disciple in your relationship with Jesus.
For the next few days we’ll walk you through what this new life as a Christian looks like. The topics we will discuss are essential to your new journey with Jesus, so we highly encourage you to take one day at a time and not read ahead. Also, there will be a specific challenge alongside each day’s topic.
Here’s the journey we’ll be on over the next week:
DAY 1 | CONNECTING TO JESUS
DAY 2 | TALKING TO GOD
DAY 3 | LISTENING TO GOD
DAY 4 | LIVING IN THE SPIRIT
DAY 5 | GATHERING TOGETHER
DAY 6 | SHARING GOD WITH OTHERS
DAY 7 | CONNECTING TO CHRISTIAN LIFE
We can’t wait to get started! We hope you are as excited as we are. This journey with Jesus is one like no other. Be prepared for your whole life to be changed for the better!
