After I've Prayed?
Congratulations on your new commitment to Jesus Christ. Here are some steps for you to take that will help you grow in your walk with God.
1] FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD
You must first develop your relationship with God by having a daily prayer and study life.
2] ATTEND BIBLE STUDY WITH OTHERS
There are many great churches in our nation that will help you grow, contact us for a church in your local area.
3] BE WATER BAPTIZED
Jesus said that He submitted to Water Baptism in order to "fulfill all righteousness." This example is given for us to follow.
4] SEEK THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
In Mark 16:17, Jesus tells us that one of the signs that will follow you is "speaking in new tongues." You must desire this gift. Ask Jesus to fill you with the Holy Ghost, then expect Him to.
5] LEARN HOW TO PRAY
Speak to God, you will find that God does hear and answer the prayers of His people, when they ask Him in faith.
6] DESIRE SPIRITUAL GIFTS
I Corinthians 14:1 says, "Eagerly desire spiritual gifts..." God wants you to know what they are and that He desires to use you to operate His will in the earth.
7] KNOW YOUR GIFTS OF SERVICE
You are valuable to God and He wants to use what He gave you to touch the lives of other people who are lost in the world.
8] DEVELOP GOD'S CHARACTER
The basic characteristic of God is love. This is the one goal that you must keep your eyes on.
9] SERVE IN GOD'S KINGDOM BY SERVING IN THE LOCAL CHURCH
God brought you into this relationship with Himself so you would be used to bring others to Jesus Christ. God desires for you to be involved at some capacity.
