When You Put Your Faith in Jesus

 

Did you just pray to start a relationship with Jesus?

We'd love to support you in that!

 

 

If you asked Jesus into your life as Saviour and Lord, many things have happened, including:

 

Jesus has come into your life

Jesus has come into your life by the Holy Spirit and he will never leave you

"And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life."

1 John 5:11-12

 

Your sins have been forgiven

All your sins have been forgiven

"For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins."

Colossians 1:13-14

 

You are now a child of God

You have become a child of God. He is your heavenly father

"For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus."

Galatians 3:26

 

You have been empowered

God has given you new power to live a transformed life.

"... anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun."

2 Corinthians 5:17

"When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen."

Ephesians 3:14-21

 

You are now friends with God

You have started a friendship with God that will last forever.

"And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth."

John 17:3

 

But how do we know this actually happened?

 

 

Jesus is in your life ...

...because God has promised, and he can be trusted.

Thank God often that Jesus is in your life, and that he will never leave you.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, either our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38-39

 

You have the Spirit of Christ

You can know that the Spirit of Christ lives in you and that you have eternal life from the moment you invited Jesus into your life, because this is what he has promised.

"And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God's Son does not have life. I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life."

1 John 5:11-13

 

Rely on God

Although feelings are valid and important, they do not determine what is true. A follower of Jesus lives by trusting in the reliability of God himself and what he has said.

 

Trust facts not feelings

 

 

To be transported by an aeroplane, we must put our trust in the construction of the aircraft. Our feelings do not influence the fact that the plane will carry us.

In the same way, we can rely on God and trust what he has promised in the Bible, and not depend on the way we feel.

 

 

How do I grow as a follower of Jesus?
