6.  What Do I Do Next?

​If you’ve truly trusted in Jesus as your Lord and Savior, all your

sins are forgiven. You are born again and you are a new creation.  However, this is not the end. Rather, it is the beginning of an exciting journey. You need to continue to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ. This kind of growth requires spiritual food. Just as you eat daily to feed your body, you need to study the Bible daily to feed your spirit.

Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.   ~   Matthew 4:4

As a new believer, you are now a child of God. But, you’re not God’s only child.  Other Christians are fellow children of God and they are your brothers and sisters in the Lord.  God never intended for you to live the Christian life alone. The Church is God’s gift to you to help you on this journey.  As you grow, you will also have the privilege of helping your brothers and sisters within the context of the Church. They can’t help you, and you can’t help them if you don’t know them. Therefore, find a good Bible-believing church near you. Attend faithfully.  Serve there and be served by others. This is God’s blessing and command.

And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.  ~  Hebrews 10:24-25

Lastly, tell someone else about what Jesus did for you. If you love them, tell them about Jesus.


Look for these two simple signs:

  1. You continue to believe the Gospel -- the good news that Jesus died to pay the penalty for your sins and rose on the third day, and that by believing this message, repenting of sin, you're saved from eternal hell, the Lake of Fire.

  2. You're growing in holiness.  This means God is making you more like Jesus day by day.  This doesn't mean you've arrived.  It means you're continually moving in the right direction.  Momentary setbacks are expected but the overall direction is towards God.  You're growing in holiness when you understand God's heart more and more, you want to do His will more and more.  You hate what God hates (sin) and you love what God loves (righteousness) more and more.  You won't be sinless in this life, but if God saved you, you're going to sin less and less, and you're going to look like Jesus more and more.
