What Can I Expect?
Now that you have made a decision to follow Jesus, you can expect that your past, present and future will be changed. Here’s what’s different!
Before we knew God and His love for us, we were ignorant of His presence and power available to us. Through Jesus’ work on the cross, in which He shed His blood for us, we can be forgiven of our sins. The Holy Spirit shows us our need for Jesus and His work on the cross, and helps us have faith in Him. When we accept Christ by faith in His work (Ephesians 2:8), we are cleansed from our sins and born again in our spirit (John 3:3-6).
Now we can understand spiritual truths and relate with God’s word by faith. We can enjoy God’s love and presence (Romans 5:5)! Through Jesus’ victory on the cross, we are free from our old attitudes, behaviours and habits. We are also no longer open to spiritual attacks and the world’s way of thinking.
We have eternity with God in heaven (John 3:16)! God also promises us a spiritual inheritance with Him forever.
Talk about it:
- Is it easy to accept that you have been forgiven?
- How does knowing that there is an eternity in heaven ahead change your perspective in life?
