What a wonderful decision to invite Jesus into your life! What now? Just like getting to know a person, one of the greatest ways to grow as a Christian is to get to know Jesus. Below are just a few ways that you can get to know Jesus better.
Just as good friends talk to each other, so God, your heavenly Father, wants you to talk to him. And, while you may not understand it right now, you’ll find that he talks to you as well. You can pray to God about anything and everything. He wants to hear from you. Philippians 4:6: Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13): 1 John 5:14,15
Study the Bible
You can read God’s Word- the Bible. When you buy a new gadget, you usually get an instruction manual. When you become a Christian you need God’s instruction manual, the Bible. In fact, the communication you hear from God will often come as you read his Word. 2 Timothy 3:16
Be part of a Church family
The christian life is not intended to be attempted alone. One of the great benefits of becoming a Christian is being a part of the church – part of God’s family. We would love you to get to know other people at the Gladstone Church of Christ. Attending church services regularly is a good way to get involved in the church community. (Hebrews 10:25) There are many people and ministries that can assist you to get connected and help you grow in your relationship with God.
If you’re visiting Gladstone, let me help you connect with a suitable church close to where you live.
If there is any way the church can be of service to you, please don’t hesitate to contact us. May God bless you and we look forward to seeing you at Gladstone Church of Christ.
