The Bible tells us in Ephesians 2: 8-9 that “It is by grace (God’s gift) we have been saved and not by works (human effort).”
Also, at godlife.com/look-to-jesus you can learn more about what it means to follow Christ. I encourage you to begin reading the Gospel of John in your Bible, or online at http://downloadbible.godlife.com/
Jesus once asked his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” Isn’t that a great question? How would you answer it? Who is Jesus to you personally?
I’m excited that you made the decision to accept Christ as your Savior. This is the most important decision you will ever make!
When you asked Christ to be your savior, several things happened.
-Christ came into your life (Revelation 3:20)
-You became a child of God (John 1:12)
-Your sins were forgiven (Col 1:14)
-You now have the gift of eternal life (1 John 5:11)
These are just a few of God’s amazing promises to those who follow him. Do they make sense to you?
Becoming a follower of Christ is just the first step on a fantastic journey, and most of us need help on that trip. Over at http://www.godlife.com/ they are completely committed to helping people find God, and then grow in their relationship with Him.
