How do I live a life that has value and leaves a good legacy? How do I go about making good choices and decisions? These are questions that plague every person and, fortunately, there is Someone that can help you with all your questions. His name is Jesus Christ and while He has physically left us we believe that His Spirit lives with us. It is His Spirit that can help us in our deepest needs and share with us in our greatest joys. But for that to happen, we need to know Him and what He taught while He was among us. While there are several ways to come to know Jesus, there are three that you should seriously consider.
1.Read what the Bible says about Him. There is no other source that can tell you more about Jesus than the Bible. In what is called the New Testament section of the Bible, it would be good for you to begin with the first four books (actually letters but we call them “books”), Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
2.Get involved in a church family. No church is perfect and every church is filled with broken and sinful people. They are all trying to know Jesus too. So find a church family that you can connect with, get involved in a small group, and get around believers that can assist you on your learning journey.
3.Prayer is simply talking to God. It does not require any special language or previous experience. Prayer is telling God what you are thinking and listening for His response. Nothing magical. Nothing fancy. Just talking from the heart.
We are excited for you and this time of your life as you get to know Jesus better. If there is anything we can do to help you, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would love to be there for you.
