Have you recently become a Christian? If so, Iâm sure youâre experiencing the mother-of-all-paradigm-shifts right now! Those first years as a new Christian are an exhilarating time. With a new heart and a new mind, you hunger for truth, crave righteousness, and long for Christian fellowship. Youâve got a new vocabulary and youâre starting to rethink your approach to old habits, hangouts, pastimes, and friends. You deeply desire to see lost friends and loved ones saved. Youâve become exactly the kind of person God wants to use for His glory!
You may not realize this, but youâve become a powerful instrument in the hands of the sovereign God of the universe. As a new Christian, youâve been given an amazing inheritanceâand you probably donât even know a tiny portion of the difference that can and should be making in your life today.
So if youâre a new Christian, Iâd like to send you a bookâitâs called Welcome to the Family. Itâs an accessible, readable, encouraging introduction to the blessings of being a Christian. Itâs going to explain your newly acquired standing before God, help you to process new truths, and show you how to âplug inâ to the church. Itâs the big picture of what it means to be a part of the body of Christ.
