If you’re a new believer—recently accepted Jesus as your Messiah and went through the ABC steps of salvation (admit, believe, confess)—welcome to the family of God! Heaven is partying right now, rejoicing over your repentance, humbleness before God, and your salvation.

 

Jesus said, “I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”(Luke 15:10)

 

Here are four foundational actions you can take to grow in your faith and in the knowledge of our LORD—followed by online and radio resources to hear balanced biblical teaching.

 

1. Start reading and studying the Bible. It’s critical nutrition for your soul—and helps you discern God’s truth vs. satan’s tricky lies. Get the basics and build from there, including end-times prophetic issues you’ll want to track.

 

The Book of John is an excellent starting point. Actually, all the Gospel accounts—Matthew, Mark, Luke, John—tell the Good News of our Messiah and reveal what our Heavenly Father desires of us.

 

2. Get plugged into a local rock-solid Bible-teaching church—one that is sold out for God, true to His Word, teaching line-by-line the totality of the Scriptures . . . and that teaches the fullness of biblical prophecy in light of today’s events so you understand the hour we are in and what it means to you and those you love and know.

 

3. Broaden your knowledge. Listen to well-grounded Christian radio stations and online streaming sermons for more on-demand teaching. And many Christian radio stations play uplifting, God-affirming music to get you through your day.

 

4. Spend time in daily prayer—God longs for your fellowship. So talk to Him. But like any good relationship, it’s a two-way street. Wait in that stillness before Him to hear His voice . . . it may be something from His Word that He’ll impress on you or words and teachings from your Bible reading and studying that minister to your soul.
