Get more from life and a relationship with God
Pray daily. God wants you to have the right desires
and He promises to help you to get your good godly
desires met. As you know fulfilled desires brings
great inner lasting joy.
Caution: God's promises always come
true, but often not
when we want or
the way we expect.
Read the Bible frequently (daily is best). It is hard to overstate the
benefits people get from reading the Bible.
For over 30 years I have read the Bible every day.
There is a reason for that. No other book comes close
to providing the benefits the Bible does! There is no greater wisdom
or knowledge than what is found in the
James 1:5 The
Bible tells us, "My people are destroyed for lack of
knowledge." During our lifetimes, we will face many
problems. The time is now to prepare for
future problems by asking the Holy Spirit for help in
reading and understanding the Bible.
I personally think it is best to start by reading the
first book of the New Testament, "Matthew." Then read
the first two books of the Bible (Genesis and Exodus)
to help you understand who the main characters are
throughout the Bible. Then read all of the New
Testament and then read the whole Bible from where you
finished Exodus. Realize nobody fully understands the
Bible the first time they read it. So pray for
understanding and plow through and plan to understand
more later as you re-read it. As you read the Bible
for the 2nd time, it gets even more exciting as you
understand much more and see God's promises work in your life!!!
The New American
Standard Bible (NASB) is a very good modern
translation and the one I read even though the English in the NASB is
style. For new Bible readers I recommend the English
Standard Version (ESV). The ESV is written like
Americans speak and write in the 2020s.

Get baptized by immersion. All baptisms in the Bible
are of adults (not babies) being immersed
When my parents had me baptized as a baby I only got
wet. It did nothing for me spiritually because I was
not at an age of accountability.
