What you need to know

Are you born again?

If not please pray this prayer of confession

Lord, I ask that you forgive me of all my sins, both known and unknown. I ask that you accept me as your own and write my name in the Lamb’s Book of Life. From this day forward I will read Your Word and obey it. Because of the blood of the Cross, I am now forgiven. My sins are buried in the sea of forgetfulness, never to be remembered against me anymore. I am now a child of God, and Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life. Amen.

Dedicating your life to Christ is the most important decision you will ever make in your lifetime. We welcome you into the family of God and celebrate this first step in your life as a believer. If you prayed this prayer

Now you have received Christ as your personal savior.

Share your Testimony

Once you have been redeemed, you have the obligation to redeem others with your testimony, a testimony you are not afraid to give about a God of whom you are not ashamed. Before Jesus left this earth, He commanded His disciples to be witnesses

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

Jesus meant this commandment for all those who follow Him, then and now. It is important that you know your responsibility to be obedient and give your testimony with the purpose of bringing others to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. However, it is not your responsibility if the person hears your testimony and then refuses to receive the Lord Jesus as Savior. God has given human beings this right. Not all will choose Christ, but you may be surprised how many will do so.

Write your story of God’s work in your life. You will be amazed at what the Holy Spirit will bring to your mind as you think of all the things God has done

Who is the Holy Spirit?

Ephesians 5:18 commands us to be “filled with the Spirit.” Go to the Word of God and ask the Father to reveal His Holy Spirit to you in a very intimate and personal way. The question you need to ask yourself is: Do I have all of God I want?

Jesus promised His disciples that after the Holy Spirit of God came to dwell in them, He would be their personal Teacher: “The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you” (John 14:26). The Holy Spirit would enable them to remember Jesus’ teachings and correctly understand them.

Your purpose in Life

Who has God created me to be? What has He commissioned me to do? A well-known saying sums it up this way: “What we are is God’s gift to us. What we become is our gift to God.”

As you ask God to direct you, think about your particular skills. What do you enjoy doing? What seems to come naturally to you? Read through the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-30. God has given you a gift, and He wants you to use it. Recognize the talents God has given you, once you have identified God’s gifts to you, you are ready to put your gifts before Him – your goals – in writing.

Goal Setting

1. Have a vision for the future. Habakkuk 2:2
2. Make time to be with God.
3. Seek God’s will for your life.
4. Write down your vision and make it plain.
5. Check your goals with the Word of God.
6. Stay focused on your vision; don’t give way to a defeated attitude.
7. Be willing to change if God desires it.
