Now that I believe: what's next?
The instant you placed your faith in Christ, you were adopted by God (Romans 8:15-16). Because you are His child, He gave you His Holy Spirit and promised NEVER to leave you nor forsake you (Ephesians 1:13-14; Hebrews 13:5). Your eternal destiny is sealed and guaranteed (Ephesians 4:30) AND no one (not even you, yourself) can take you out of His protective hand (John 10:27-30) because HE KEEPS YOU (2Timothy 1:12; Jude 24).
Now that you have believed, He desires to accomplish many things in your life. Some of these are listed below.
1. He will teach you and remind you of the things you have learned (John 14:26) by guiding you into all truth (John 16:13).
2. He will control you if you let Him (Ephesians 5:18), and He will enable you to live godly (Galatians 5:16) by producing holy fruit in your life (Galatians 5:22-23).
3. He gives you the ability to overcome problems, becoming stronger as a result of those trials (Romans 5:3-5; Philippians 4:13; James 1:2-5).
