I realize that you may still have many questions, that’s okay. I also realize that just as a baby needs help from their parents to get the food they need, you will also need help getting “spiritually fed” in the beginning of your relationship with Jesus.
I recommend getting plugged into a group with other followers of Christ. Find others who are have been on this journey longer than you that can help you along the way.
It could be a church, a bible study or just you and one other person meeting together on a consistent basis. You may think that there are no other Christians in your area, but I encourage you to pray and ask God to provide for you and I believe He will.
One of the main ways we get spiritual food is through the Bible. There’s really no way around it. If you’re going to grow, you’ll be taking in more and more of God’s Word. You may think it’s boring, but believe me when you pray and ask God to reveal Himself through the Bible, it is not boring. He is able to relate it to what you’re going through today.
Luke 24:45 says Jesus, “opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.” And He wants to do the same with you.
I encourage you to buy a Bible. Don’t be afraid to write in it. My Bible is underlined with things written in the columns and it helps encourage me later with what God was teaching me at that time.
Until you get a Bible, you can read it online at BibleGateway.com.
Conversing with God – Listening and Talking
Another way to connect with God is through prayer, which is simply listening and talking with Him like you would a friend. I encourage you to get a journal and write out your prayers.
If you don’t know where to start, you can start by using some prayers that have been written out in the Bible. You can see a list here.
