What to do after accepting Jesus – Next Steps after becoming a Christian, i.e. Next steps after accepting Jesus Christ into your heart
Hello Friends! Yesterday, we talked about How to become a Christian.
Join us today as we explore What to do after accepting Jesus Christ into your heart and your life, i.e. Next Steps after becoming a Christian. These 7 steps are taken from Page 4 of the detailed presentation: Getting to know God.
Follow up your decision to follow Christ with the following:
1. Make Jesus Your Priority: Regularly spend time talking (praying) to God and reading your Bible every day. Pray for wisdom and understanding as you read, and ask God to show you how to please him and be more like him. Remember Jesus is your new best friend – please keep in touch!

3. Seek out a small group of fellow Christians you can hang out with regularly. Most churches will have small groups, life groups, cell groups or Bible Study groups – find one that you can join. It could also be outside the church, for instance you may decide to regularly fellowship with a few of your Christian friends. These people will support you, encourage you, and will answer any questions you might have. And you will by God’s grace have a lot of fun in the process!
4. It would be wonderful to find an Accountability Partner. Pray for God to show you the right person. A fellow Christian Friend or Mentor you trust and can open up to, who would encourage you as well as lovingly challenge you if you are going the wrong way. Read more about Accountability here.
5. Get Baptized – Any Christian/Follower of Jesus can Baptize you.
Please note – You don’t necessarily have to do this right now! So please, don’t stress yourself out just because you haven’t had the opportunity to become baptized. God will provide the opportunity at just the right time. 🙂
6. Trusting God: Rely on God to show you how to live every day. You have now begun a relationship with God and you are an ambassador for Christ. Don’t forget to live accordingly. God will show you how to continually live in a way that will glorify him. The more you get to know God, the more in love with him you will become!

7. Please, don’t forget to share your faith with others – with God’s help and by His grace! Let us spread the good news as followers of Jesus Christ, as we are commissioned to do! Ask God to help you to be an ambassador of Jesus Christ everywhere you go – even in your everyday life, in all you say and do.
