New Believer or those growing in Faith
I have encountered many over the years just coming into their Faith or at least questioning what they truly believe when in comes to their eternal life. As a leader in men’s ministry, I have felt lead to widen the scope of helping those that need some guidance on their path to a solid foundation in their walk with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
Although I may focus on those who are just beginning their walk, I expect their will be much information for those that have either never deepened their understanding or maybe who have strayed in their walk.
First and foremost one must understand the price paid for salvation. We did not have to pay the price because it was taken upon the shoulders of one who stood in our place. Jesus Christ was the one who stood, who bare our sins, and paid the ultimate price in his earthly death.
1Pe 2:24 who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed.
Once this is truly understood and internalized true growth can be made. When one begins any new venture, one must start with the basics. Through the Bible, God has given us a clear path to salvation and living the life which he has ordained for us.
As a new Christian, in the Bible, we are considered babes in Christ. A newborn needs to start on a diet of milk. If you have had a child, you know that babies eat many times a day, but very small amounts; maybe 1-2 ounces of milk six, seven, even ten times a day.
1Pe 2:2 as newborn babes, long for the spiritual milk which is without guile, that ye may grow thereby unto salvation;
Matthew 13 tells the parable of the sower of seeds. Regardless of our status (babe or adult) as a Christian we are all sowers of the seed of truth. Just as God told Adam in the Garden that it was his responsibility to “dress it and keep it” (Gen 2:15) we are called to not only plant the seed, but to aid in its germination and growth to full potential as a Christian.
Jesus said in Mat 13:6 and when the sun was risen, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
It is my hope and prayer that the Holy Spirit will work through this site to grow the reader in a greater understanding of what it truly is to have pure joy even in the face of adversity: to help new believers get from the milk of the Word to the meat of the Word and above all Grow Stronger Roots in God’s Will.
