The scriptures in this study will help you to better understand what it means to begin your new life with Christ living inside you.

Who has already died for your sins? Read Romans 5:8-9.

How do you know you are a child of God?
Now that you have become a child of God John 3:3-7, you will need spiritual food to help you grow. In Matthew 4:4, besides bread, what does Jesus say will sustain you?
These studies will help you begin to grow spiritually. Below are some other steps you can take to strengthen your relationship with Christ.
- Read your Bible every day. Set aside some time each day for it. You may want to begin by reading the Book of John. Expect God to speak to you through what you read in his Word.
- Pray every day. Talk to God right from your heart. Speak as though God is sitting right beside you. You can pray anytime and anywhere. God is always listening; in fact, God is waiting to talk with you!
- Attend church. Find a church where the Bible is preached as the truth and Christ is worshipped. Being in a community of believers is important because you will be strengthened and supported by your family—the family of God.
- Listen for God’s voice and obey. God has ideas about how you should live your life as a Christian. God will find special ways to communicate with you. If you don’t know whether a particular action is right or wrong, use your Bible, pray, and ask trusted Christian friends or your pastor for guidance.
- Share your new faith. Tell someone what the Lord has done for you. When you share your faith, you are giving someone great news. Christ is counting on you to spread his love to the world.
This is only the beginning of your greatest adventure. Take it one step at a time, and know that Christ is walking right beside you.
