I wish you could read the enthusiasm in my voice right now as I write this! You've recently made a decision to have a personal relationship with Jesus! Wow, seriously, that is the best decision you have ever made! It's one that I made and have never regretted. We, as a church, are proud of you!
All of us make mistakes (also known as "sin"), and those mistakes separate us from God (Romans 3:23); but Jesus (who is God in the flesh) died to forgive us of those sins. That gift of GRACE thus "bridges" us back to God. You chose to accept that gift by believing in Him; FAITH. With it, comes the knowledge that He lives in you, protects you, and will one day see you in Heaven!
SO WHAT NOW?
That's a great question! Believing in Christ makes you a "Christian." Therefore, Christianity is not just a religion or a club, it's a RELATIONSHIP with Him. Like any other relationship, it requires mutual input and love. We have to get to KNOW HIM. We have to talk to God through heartfelt PRAYER. He talks to us through his Word, (aka THE BIBLE.) Jesus also encouraged us to FELLOWSHIP with other Christians (Hebrews 10:25.)
