As you start your life with Christ, here are some steps that you take to grow strong in faith:
1. Read your Bible every day.
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17 NLT.
2. Pray every day.
“Never stop praying.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17
3. Become a part of a Christian Church.
In a Christian Church, you can grow to understand the Bible and be discipled by believers who know and love God. Do not just attend church, become a part of the community of church. Build relationships and friendships that help you grow closer to God.
4.Obey God. This may sound simple, but obeying God is essential to growing in Him. He knows that we truly love Him when we obey Him.
“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! 20 You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life. And, if you love and obey the Lord, you will live long in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” Deuteronomy 30:19-20.
5. Abide in Christ
If you remain with Christ, walking intimately with Him every moment of the day, you will grow strong in Him and bear much fruit.
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. 6 Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. 7 But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! 8 When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.” John 15:5-8.
