A relationship with Jesus is the beginning of a life of adventure with an all-loving, all powerful God. If you have sincerely asked Christ to to be the Lord of your life, you can be sure that your relationship with God is secure. As a result of Christ's death on the cross, you have been completely forgiven and accepted by Him. If you've recently taken your first steps to Begin with Christ, or if you have questions about Christianity,we would love to be there for you and celebrate with you.
"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace..." (Ephesians 1:7). When you trusted Christ for the forgiveness of your sin, all your sins were forgiven.......past, present and future
"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name -- children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God." (John 1:12,13)
(Christ speaking) "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him." (Revelation 3:20). (Christ speaking) "Whoever comes to Me I will never drive away." (John 6:37)
"Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" (2 Corinthians 5:17). When you trusted Christ to be your Savior and Lord, you began a new spiritual life. God will increasingly produce many new qualities in you as you grow in Him.
"And this is the testimony; God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life." (1 John 5:11-13)
Even though feelings are important, your relationship with Christ is based on facts, not on feelings that can change daily. Doubts, questions and varying emotions are common parts of everyone's life, but they are very unreliable gauges of anyone's relationship with Christ. The Christian lives by faith in the trustworthiness of God and His Word.
But what if you don't feel like a Christian tomorrow? Place your faith in the faithfulness of God Himself and the trustworthiness of His Word. The more you learn, the more you will be able to answer any doubts with solid facts. Your feelings will begin to respond to the truth of God's Word and not to your circumstances.
Since you have trusted in Christ's payment for your sin, understood the basis of your relationship with God and have learned five truths about your relationship, you can be confident in your relationship with Christ.
