Praise God for new sisters and brothers such as you!
Being a new born child in Jesus is wonderful and, while the journey will be short, as we are all pilgrims here, there are directions for us in God's Word about being a labourer in a harvest of lost souls.
Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly [is] plenteous, but the labourers [are] few;
Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest. [Matthew 9:37-38]
Understanding and receiving the word is a process of reading and praying what we read -- all the while being open to the full understanding provided by the Holy Spirit.
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible,by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. [1 Peter 1:23]
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: [1 Peter 2:2]
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
[Matthew 18: 2-5]
Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
[Matthew 19: 13-14]
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. [ John 3:18]
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. [1 John 4:4]
We have just begun a wonderful new life in Christ.
