What did this decision mean?
When you turn from trying to do life on your own, and embrace Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you receive eternal life! This means that your relationship God starts here and now, and gets to continue forever- yes, even after we die!
You are new and free!
When we give our life to Jesus, we are made new creatures in Christ. Old things pass away and all things become new! This means you are completely forgiven, all ties to sin and death have been broken, and we can enter into the realization of this freedom as we engage in relationship with Him. (2 Corinthians 5:17).
The Holy Spirit is in you!
When we enter into relationship with God, God Himself, the Holy Spirit comes to live in us and be real to us. As we tune our hearts to Him, we are continuously transformed by His powerful love. His presence does amazing things in and through us. We can also see His wonderful fruit come to pass in our lives. (Romans 5:5, Galatians 5:22)
You are part of a spiritual family!
When you receive God as your Father, you join His family! This family is commonly referred to as the "Church". The Church is the collective name for people who have made the same decision to receive Jesus, and have been given the mandate to spread God's love to one another and all the world! While there are many "churches", God's family is one people. We encourage you to find a church body in your local area who preaches from the Bible, believes in the power of the Holy Spirit, and will encourage you in your everyday walk with God. (Colossians 3:15, Romans 12:5)
The Bible speaks to you.
We cannot write an exhaustive list of all the wonderful things that this new relationship means - good thing we've been given the Bible! You will discover more and more of His goodness as you read about how He has worked throughout history and the wonderful things He has done and desires to do in our everyday lives. We encourage you to start in the New Testament and ask the Holy Spirit to make the words on the page resonate in your heart. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Hebrews 4:12)
