Understanding salvation using biblical references can help you learn what Christianity is about. Salvation is something God gives freely to anyone willing to accept it. It is not something a person can earn with good deeds (Ephesians 2:8-9). Jesus’ death and resurrection gave us the gift of everlasting salvation. Learning about salvation can make you feel loved, accepted, and grateful to Christ the Savior.
Live Strong and Be a Light
As a new Christian, you have the chance to be a light for others on the same journey. Pray for God to work through you and use you as an instrument for His purposes. You may meet others who need spiritual guidance or a reminder of Christ’s love. Be a reliable source of information about Christianity and use your own personal experiences as evidence of His love.
Instill the teachings of the Lord in your actions and behaviors, do not just use your words. Show other new Christians what being a Christian means and set an example as a role model in your new faith. Embracing Jesus as Lord is an immensely exciting time. Enjoy this experience and become engaged in the church to continue to grow in Christ.
