Now What?


You have just made the biggest and best decision of your life. The decision to follow Jesus is a game changer. This decision means that you will be spending eternity in heaven. This decision means that you will now be able to have a genuine relationship with God. This decision means that you now have a new family to share your life with. This decision will also give you the opportunity to discover God’s plan for your life.

It is an amazing thing to realize that God loves us and not only wants to spend eternity with us but also wants a relationship with us, here and now, not just there and then. You may be asking, “How is that even possible?” You may also be asking, “How do I begin?” Those are great questions because being a Christian is bigger than just a prayer we pray; it’s a life we live! Tomorrow, we will begin the journey to help you discover in depth what that means.

Also, if you don’t have a Bible yet, we might suggest the NIV Life Application Study Bible and/or you might want to down load the You Version Bible app on your phone or tablet.

As we close, why not take a moment and pray this simple prayer or a prayer of your own. Remember, praying is just talking to God.

Thank you, God, for saving me. Thank you for desiring a relationship with me and allowing me to come to understand that I need a Savior. I don’t know what all of this means, yet, but I’m trusting you and ARISE to help me grow in my new faith. - Amen
