This modern classic has helped thousands get a strong start in their Christian ^lives, and can do the same for you. Few men are better equipped than George Sweeting ^to explain how to grow in your walk with God.

DR. GEORGE SWEETING is the former president and chancellor of the ^Moody Bible Institute (1971-1999) and is currently Chancellor Emeritus. As a world-renowned ^evangelist, pastor, teacher, and writer, few are better equipped to explain how ^to grow in your salvation. How to Begin the Christian Life is a modern classic ^with more than a million copies in print in English and other languages.

As a newborn baby is cared for in the physical world, you need to be helped ^spiritually. Let me list four helpful suggestions that I will enlarge upon in later ^chapters.


1. Read the Bible systematically. What food is to the body, ^the Bible is your new spiritual life. At a prescribed time, in a quiet place, each ^day should start with the Bible. This is a must if you are to grow in the things ^of God. The gospel of John is a good place for you to begin. Remember, at least ^a chapter a day! D.L. Moody said, "The Bible will keep you from sin or sin will ^keep you from Bible." A chapter a day will certainly help to keep sin away.




2. ^Learn to pray. Prayer is the communion of the believer with God; we speak to God, ^but He also speaks to us. Prayer is not merely asking favors of God but, rather, ^waiting in quietness before Him. Pray for personal cleansing and victory over evil: ^pray for yourself and pray for others.




3. Use every opportunity to confess ^Christ before the world. In a winsome way, immediately tell someone of your spiritual ^decision. Activity strengthens. When believers share with others, they develop an ^appetite for Bible study. The result of their speaking to others of their new life ^will provide daily, up-to-date subjects for prayer. When a new Christian begins ^working, everything comes into proper focus. R. A. Torrey said, "The more you make ^of Jesus Christ, the more he will make of you. It will save you from many temptations ^if the fact is clearly known that you are one who acknowledges Christ as Lord of ^all things."




4. Become part of a local church. If a mother permits her ^children to grow up in idleness, the result will be unprepared children. Since the ^Christian's responsibilities toward other believers is clear, waiting only forms ^bad habits. The Bible says, "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, ^as is the manner of some" (Hebrew 10:25). Your faithful church attendance will help ^you in spiritual growth. Find a fellowship that gives full allegiance to Jesus Christ ^and the Word of God, and become part of it.If you follow these four Bible steps, ^Christian growth is promised. You will be sure to meet temptations, but you need ^not yield or fall to them, for God has promised, "He who is in you is greater than ^he who is in the world" (1 John 4:4). If you do fall, ask for immediate forgiveness. ^"If we confess our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9). ^if you fall, do not remain defeated, but get up and go on. Perhaps right now you ^are facing a battle with some attitude or habit; remember that Christ is ready to ^help you, and He has all power in heaven and earth. Another secret of successful ^Christian living is to keep your eyes on Christ. The best of Christians will fail ^you, but never forget - "Jesus never fails." Congratulations on your decision to ^receive Jesus Christ as your Savior. Now strive to follow these first steps. Starting ^right is a key tp spiritual growth.
