 Praise the Lord you are now a Christian. You have received the Lord Jesus and you belong to Him. He has taken away your sin, forgiven you  and given you His life. That life is eternal life and began the moment you received the Lord Jesus and He entered into your heart by the Holy Spirit. Before His death, talking to His disciples, the Lord Jesus said He was going away to prepare a place for them and would “Come again and receive them to Himself”. In the same chapter in the Bible, Jesus promised to send another Comforter to be not only with us but in us. The Comforter is the Holy Spirit who is just like Jesus in nature, and when He enters our hearts it is like having Jesus inside of us. Jesus has come to us. We are Christians, “Christ Ones” because we belong to Jesus and He has taken up possession of us by dwelling in our hearts.

The “Way Ahead” is how now to live in the will of God and learn how to find the help and support we need to continue our life serving the Lord. The Holy Spirit who has entered our hearts gives us the power of God to live by. The Bible talks about having “Treasure in an earthen vessel”. We are the vessels ,the treasure is the wonderful life we have received ,and however difficult life seems, the power inside is greater than all our problems.

The Holy Spirit is to lead us into all truth. He teaches us how to pray to the Lord Jesus, and to God as our Father. When Jesus was asked how we should pray He said, “When you pray, say, “Our Father”, so we need to pray to God as our Heavenly Father. Prayer does not need to be formal but just talking to God about the cares and needs of our lives, and others lives, and asking for His help and guidance in everything. Now you belong to Him, all the issues of your life, whether great or small, are very important to Him, so we can involve Jesus in all areas of our lives. Help with work, school, home, family, sickness, new job etc. ,and people we care for and their problems too. .All our cares we can “Cast on Him because He cares for us”. Nothing is impossible for the Lord to sort out. As we mature, our praying, maybe, will become   less about our own problems but more about the needs of others. However, there will always be times when we have to seek the Lord to help us in our own lives. We need Him daily to strengthen us in everything.

The Bible is “God’s inspired book” and the whole book ,when we read it with the Holy Spirit’s help, will teach us about the Lord Jesus and what He has done for us. The more we read, the more we will understand Jesus’ love for us and how great is “Our salvation”. So Bible reading is very important. There are study notes available from Bible bookshops etc to help. But just prayerful reading is fine on its own. Start with the New Testament, the Gospels, and the Acts of the Apostles; then perhaps the books of Genesis and Exodus and some Psalms, in the Old Testament, Also read Paul, Peter and John’s letters to the various churches in the New Testament ,and then just keep reading.
