If you have put your trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior – welcome to the family of God! He is your Father and you are His child. Walk with Him. Talk with Him. Turn to Him when you need help. He loves you and has all the power you need to live this New Life without fear or regret. You can expect that things are going to change because God doesn’t leave us in the same condition that He found us. He calls us to trust and obey Him. Jesus says “Follow me”. Thankfully, following Him is possible because He gives us both the power to change and desire to do so. And it’s a joy because we love Him. That’s the collective testimony of the Storytellers, and so many others around the world who are following Jesus Christ without reservation.
First Steps: It’s important to get your own Bible and begin learning and living out what God says. This will help you grow strong in your faith. You also should get involved with a Bible-teaching church where you can meet with others who love God and desire to walk with Him. If you need help finding one, contact us and we’ll see if we can help. As you walk with Jesus sin will lose it’s grip on you and your life will change.
So what does following Jesus look like? It’s not being religious. It’s simply trusting and obeying our Creator… or you could think of it this way: Love God. Hate Sin. We read in the Bible, in 2 Corinthians 5:14-15, It is the love of the Christ which compels us, when we reflect that, as one died for all, therefore all died; and that he died for all, so that the living should no longer live for themselves, but for him who died and rose for them. We also read in Romans 12:1-2, Therefore I urge you, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service. Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God.
