I recently got a question from someone on resources for those that are new christians. Here are resources I’ve found that we’re helpful in my walk as a new Christian.
I didn’t grow up knowing anything about Jesus Christ. I knew there was a God and that was it. The people around me we’re catholic, seven-day-adventist and Jehovah Witness, I had a lot of questions and they we’re able to answer even the questions that we’re in my heart. I was searching for God. I wasn’t aware that I was, there wasn’t a peace in my heart. Years later, I meant my husband, became pregnant with twins and met God there, at rock bottom. I was so far out of God’s will for my life that I hit rock bottom and needed help to find myself and my way out. God met me right there.
Here are 3 resources that would help you jumpstart your Journey as a new Christian:
1. Get plugged into a bible based church. This was the first thing I did when I started my Journey and it was the best thing I could have done. I was able to get plugged in, get Baptized, ask A LOT of questions and meet wonderful people, I’m still friends with today. Also, attend a bible study, It’s an opportunity to grow with others in the same season as you. Listening to other people’s testimonies can also strengthen your relationship with God. By attending a church and bible study this allows you to grow in your relationship with God and start your Journey in learning about Him.
2. Get a Study Bible- My husband got me my first woman study bible, I still have today, I have grown leaps and bounds from it. A great study bible you can use, is the She reads Truth Bible. The She Reads Truth Bible aims to live at the intersection of beauty, goodness, and Truth. Featuring devotionals by the She Reads Truth team, and Scripture reading plans that include supplemental passages for deeper understanding, this Bible invites every woman to count themselves among the She Reads Truth community of “Women in the Word of God every day.” The She Reads Truth Bible also features 66 key verses, artfully lettered to aid in Scripture memorization.
The features include: Almost 200 devotionals, 66 artist-designed key verses, 35 full-color timelines, 20 full-color maps, 11 full-color charts, reading plans for every book of the Bible, one-year Bible reading plan, detailed book introductions, key verse list, carefully curated topical index, smyth-sewn binding, two colored ribbon markers, and wide margins for journaling and note-taking.
I LOVE everything about this bible. I love the maps, the colorful writings, the devotionals and the one year bible reading plan. I recommend this bible for anyone. You can check out the website for more information, devotionals, reading plans and more. This website is an opportunity for you to explore the bible and get to know God in different ways. You can win one of 7 copies of the She Reads Truth Bible, click here for more information.
3. Journal the progress. Journaling has always been therapeutic for me. I Journal not just what i’m feeling, but what God is doing in a season in my life. I have Journals from when I first started my journey as a new Christian and I still have a Journal in the new seasons God has brought me through and the one i’m currently in. Journal so your faith can increase as you continue to walk this journey. When you are feeling down and discourage, journaling helps you remember the times God delivers you from situations and/or has encouraged you.
