You are very close to making the BEST, and the biggest decision of your life! We are already celebrating with you!
So, you want to find Jesus? It’s actually quite easy.
It's easy because you have already done the first step; you have humbled your heart. Just by asking for help, and wanting Jesus in your heart, you have found Him already. The hard work has already been done for you when Jesus gave His life for you.
The next step is just making it official! With a humble heart, tell Jesus that you need Him. His favorite words are, “Jesus, I need you.” Then ask Him, “please come into my heart.” And He will! "Please forgive me for the wrong things I have done against you. Thank you for dying on the cross for me. Please show me your will, I want to follow you from now on. In Jesus name, Amen."
You have now invited Christ into your heart - Christ in you! He has made your heart pure - You have been re-born. You're now ready to learn and experience more and more of Him. And that's a really really good thing!
Please allow me to give you some very good advice. Here are some very practical things to help you grow is your new relationship with Jesus. He will now begin putting distance between you and your past. And He will establish your future as you walk with him daily.
WHAT TO DO NEXT!
-Please begin READING the Bible now. It will fill you with Gods power, as well as the knowledge of His will for your new life in Him.
The book of John in the New Testament is a great place to start. Then Acts, Philippians, Ist and 2nd Timothy, Romans and the Psalms will all be great foundations for you.
Find a translation that makes sense to you. I love The New Living Bible. The Message Bible is really fantastic too. The NIV (New International Version) Bible is also good because it's also easy to understand.
-Begin to PRAY. If you don't know how just talk to Him. Just like you would to a friend that knows you really really well. He will never ever get tired of talking to you. The more time you spend talking to Him, the closer He becomes. And, just like you would treat a good friend, do some good listen to Him too. Then - do what He says! It takes faith, but He will reward it. I promise...because He promises!
-Also please find a good CHURCH. This new walk was never supposed to be done alone. The fellowship with other believers is important. To find a church in your area, please go to http://www.godlife.com/find-a-church The fellowship of like-minded believers is going to be important to your new walk with God.
-It's also very important to start SERVING God by serving His people as well as those that don't know Him yet. In this new life of service, we "keep what we have by giving it away.” But, at the same time, don't forget He will never leave you. My favorite verse —> [... Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down nor relax My hold on you! Assuredly not! So we take comfort and be encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm. I will not fear or dread or be terrified. What can man do to me?] - Hebrews 13: 5b-6 amplified version.
A part of SERVING is sharing Christ with those that God puts before you. When u do, He will give you the words and the courage. It does not have to be perfect. Just tell them of your new experience, strength and hope that you have found in Christ. That will be enough. Christ is always responsible for the outcome of your words, not you. He is the One 'on trial,' in their heart, not you.
