Helping Young Christians Get Started – Discipleship
When we share the gospel, we are going to see some people put their faith in Christ (Romans 1:16-17). Serving these new believers in vital. There are few things in life more gratifying than helping and watching a young Christian grow.
Here are five keys to helping young believers get started…
- Pray faithfully for every new believer, that they would grow in their new faith, that they would be protected from the evil one who wants to snatch away their faith, and that they would begin to grasp and understand God’s Word, the Bible.
- Don’t delay, get together, ask questions, listen and share important truth with them from the Bible. Try these resources – here and here. You can also text the name Jesus to 27126 for some good videos to share with new believers.
- Invite them to join you in your youth group, campus ministry and church.
- Build a strong relationship with them, make your friendship a priority. Discover what their feelings and needs are, and how you can be a friend and spiritual help to them.
- Show them how they can share their faith with their friends and others.
