The Below, Will Feed The Soul And Help it Grow.

Daily Prayer
If we are to be about the Father's business, we must be in constant communication with Him. This is what prayer is all about. During prayer we tell God of our hurts, our worries, our concerns, as well as our joys and thrills (Philippians 4:6). We hold nothing back and ask for His guidance, care and protection (Matthew 6:10,13). We confess our faults and seek His forgiveness (Matthew 6:12). Sometimes we just sit in silence and meditate upon God and His word (Habbakuk 2:20).

Daily prayer was the habit of Jesus (Luke 6:12; Mark 1:35).

Bible Reading/Memorization
We need to know the word of God to know His heart. The daily practice of reading the bible, and memorizing its contents is essential to spiritual growth (2 Timothy 3:14-17; Psalm 119:9-11)

As you regularly read the Bible and pray, you will grow in faith in two ways. First, you will learn what God promises. He makes promises you can claim. Second, the inspiring stories of the Bible will reassure you and help strengthen your faith.

Speaking of the Holy Scriptures, Paul said, "For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope" (Romans 15:4, NIV). As our hope increases, our faith increases. The two are intertwined.

Church Attendance/Participation
It is important to not try to be a loner in our Christian walk. God's plan is for us to live in community with other Christians (1 Corinthians 12:12-14). But that does not just mean we attend services once a week or so and then forget about it! God intends for us to be busy serving Him (1 Peter 2:5, 9-10). We should all be active in our local church. If you don't have one, then you need to find one.

Be Baptized
(Baptism is
a testimony to others of what God has done in your heart. It is a picture of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.) Our prayer for you here at the Salvation Pages is that you will find a place to belong and grow.

Proper Living & helping others
Our walk must mirror our talk. If we speak about Christ, but act like a devil, what does that say to those who do not know our Lord? We must live like people who have been bought with the blood of Jesus (Colossians 3:1-17).

Telling Others
This terrifies most people, but it shouldn't. It will become second nature to those who are practicing the things mentioned previously. We would not dare to hold back information that could save someone's life, so why should we hold back information that will save their soul? Tell other people about what Jesus has done for you. If you can't answer all their questions, that is OK. Take them to someone that you know who can answer them, such as a minister or godly friend. (Matthew 28:18-20).

Dear Lord, help us to grow in our Christian faith so that we may be children of whom You can be proud. Amen
