You require 3 BASIC NEEDS only God can meet:
• Knowing God personally
• Experiencing His love, acceptance and forgiveness
• Living with true purpose and significance
L... learning together from God's Word
I... interceding through prayer and caring for one another
F... true fellowship in the Spirit of Christ
E... exalting the Lord and evangelising the lost
My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land
Where there is no water.” (NLT)
As you embark on this Glorious voyage, seeking to build a wonderful and strong relationship with God, I recommend you do so earnestly, as every second, minute, hour, day … counts.
I rejoice with your decision to follow Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Now Christ has begun the process of healing your spirit and making your person whole. Your life journey in fellowship with Christ has begun.
In order to deepen, and grow in your relationship with Christ, you need to Communicate with God regularly through:
Prayer: Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Phil 4:6-7)
Bible reading: This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate thereon day and night, that thou may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. (Josh 1:8-9)
Studying: As you study His written word. He will strengthen your faith, speak to your heart, and give you guidance and direction for every need and decision in your life.”Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15).
Obey God’s Injunctions:
Be Baptised: This symbolically shows that you have died to the old sinful life, and have risen in the newness of the Life of Christ. The scriptures say (Acts 2:38, 41) "Repent, and be baptised everyone of you." "Then they that gladly received His word were baptised."
At your first opportunity, you should obey the Lord's command to be baptised in water as a confession of your repentance and faith in Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19).
Tell others about Christ (Witness). It is important for you to openly declare Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord to others, as it establishes the testimony of your faith. Don't keep Christ a secret. The Bible says that "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown before my Father in heaven" (Matthew 10:32-33).
Salvation is not by Feelings -- Good feelings are nice to have, but feelings do not prove whether you're saved or not. There may be times when you "feel" that God is close to you, and other times when you "feel" that He's not.
But remember that He has promised to always be with you and never leave you, regardless of feelings. Hebrews 13:5 – “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
Always remember that as a Christian now, you must always live by faith, not by sight or the feelings of our natural senses. 2 Corinthians 5:7 says,” For we walk by faith, not by sight”
