(To begin your personal journey of Faith, start by following these simple steps)


Making the commitment to take the Leap Of Faith in your life will not be an easy path to follow, for the world in which we live and our sinful nature will make it very difficult to remain steadfast and true. However, I can tell you from my own experience that by following these simple steps you will begin to see positive change in your life.

 Step 1

Accept God's Loving Grace and Surrender yourself in Faith, to Jesus Christ!

From the beginning God created us in His own image to have a close, personal and loving relationship with Him, yet allowing us the free will to return our love for Him through trust and obedience. In other words, God did not create us as robots, with no emotion, he created us with the ability to feel and express love, he wanted us to love Him back, not because we have to, but because we want to. After all, what is the value of love if it is not allowed to be expressed voluntarily?

However, because we chose long ago to deny His love through disobedience (i.e. Adam and Eve's original sin), we lost our relationship with Him, and as a result are condemned to die, both physically and spiritually. This separation from God has created the fallen world in which we live and is the root cause for the fears, doubts and emptiness that we all experience in our lives.

But the good news is, there is HOPE through God's loving GRACE; an undeserved gift of LOVE that gives each of us an opportunity for redemption and atonement from our past, present and future sins through FAITH in Jesus Christ; the son of God, our divine Savior, who came into our world to serve, teach and become the ultimate example for all humankind by conquering sin and death, so that we may recognize the awesome power and glory of our creator, and regain that personal and loving relationship with our heavenly father that was lost so long ago.

So you see, it is our Faith in the resurrected Christ that that paves "the way" back to the loving arms of our creator, and it is through our Faith that we are given new Life. A life where we are no longer condemned to die or remain a slave to our sinful behaviors. A life where we no longer have to carry the guilt and pain of our past, or the hopelessness of our future. But a new life that is filled with joy, peace and the confidence in knowing that no matter what God will always find a way to give us what we need, comfort us in our times of distress and will never forsake us when we put our complete trust and Faith in Him. But more than that, we are given hope in the promise of an eternal life apart from the fallen world in which we now live, a place where there will be no pain, no tears of sorrow, no death or mourning, but only eternal joy and peace in the presence of our creator, and the most amazing thing of all? it's free! all we have to do is ask.

So take a moment of your time, sit down in a quiet place and reflect on this truth and accept this wonderful gift of Grace that God has offered you. Reach out with your mind, body and soul and connect with our Lord and Savior - Jesus Christ, then pray these words in earnest;

Dear Lord Jesus,

I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and rose from the grave to give me life. I know You are the only way to God, and I ask you to please forgive me of my sins, change my life and show me how to start living for you.

In Jesus' name. Amen



 Step 2

 
Begin a daily regimen of Bible Study and Prayer

Faith comes by hearing the message of Christ, and hearing comes from the word of God, therefore it is essential to set aside time each day to study the Bible in order to gain a greater understanding of the Christian Faith and build your relationship with God.

Now I'm not talking about just going to church on Sundays, I'm talking about about really sitting down each day and studying God's word and connecting with Him. For the Bible teaches us not only about the message of the kingdom of heaven, but how to deal with our everyday struggles.

To begin with, select a good Study Bible that summarizes each book of the Bible, it is important to understand the context of each book and how it relates to the overall message of the Bible. All too often in today's world we see people paraphrasing select verses from the Bible to justify their own fears and condemnation of others without understanding the context of which the verse applies. Once you begin to understand the context of each book within the Bible, you can begin to delve into the individual chapters and verses to further your knowledge and understanding. I would also encourage you to research the history of the Christain Faith and its relationship to other religions, by doing so you will get a better understanding of the differences of each Faith and be able to defend yourself amognst your critics.

Next, make your study time a priority and schedule a time of day where you can focus and connect with God. So often in our lives we get so focused on the deadlines and commitments that we feel must be accomplished, but the reality is, none of this will add a single breath to your life. However, if you make God a priority you will find that everything else will take care of itself, And once you've completed your daily studies, it is important to take time to meditate and pray for wisdom and understanding. In addition, it is a good idea to seek others ways to surround yourself with positive enforcement, such as joining a faith group, daily devotional or Faith Blog, attend a church or other positive environments where you can gain support and encouragement in your journey in Faith.

And finally, God wants nothing more than to have an intimate and loving relationship with you, and our prayers allow us to have that connection. Take time each day to humble yourself before God and ask Him to show you how to live your life for His glory, ask Him to let the joy and peace that comes from knowing Christ rule in your heart. Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your life, and give praise to God with a thankful heart. And whatever you do or say, let it be done as a representative of our Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.


 Step 3


Become a living example of how the power of Faith can change our lives

If we truly are faithful followers of Jesus Christ we should live our lives by example through the way we conduct our own lives as believers. In other words, living a life in FAITH means expressing our FAITH with acts of tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience and forgiveness. And above all, with LOVE. For it is LOVE which binds us all together in perfect harmony, and it is only when our FAITH is expressed in acts of love for one another that we truly exemplify the fullness and spirit of FAITH. For when the light of God radiates through us in our words and actions, others will recognize that it is from God and will joyfully express their thanks to God.

So take time to listen to God's calling, discover your spiritual gifts and use them for His Glory. There are many volunteer activities, missions or entrepreneurial opportunities where you can share your God-given gifts in the community and abroad.
