21 Day Devotional: Introduction

You have just made the most important decision of your life!

Welcome to the body of Christ!  The Angels are rejoicing, and so are we, because of the decision you have made to live a new life in Christ Jesus!

Today, you prayed a prayer asking Jesus Christ to come into your life, fill your heart, and to be your Lord and Savior.  According to Romans 10:9-10, when you prayed today, you received the gift of salvation. “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”  Your salvation is a gift.  It is not something you earned because you were good enough or deserved it.  Ephesians 2:8-9 says “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”  Your salvation was given to you by God, through praying, confessing, and believing in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, and no one can take away your salvation, nor can you lose it.  When you asked God for forgiveness today, the Blood of Jesus covered your sins and God no longer sees you as guilty.

So, what now?

You have become a new creation in Christ.   “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he (she) is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”  (2 Corinthians 5:17). 

Over the next twenty-one days we want to help you develop this new you!  Experts say it takes twenty-one days to create new habits.  These next twenty-one days, and this guide, will help you establish your life in Christ, learn to read and study His Word, spend time in worship and prayer, give you resources and ideas, and answer some questions you might have.
We are happy to have you as part of the Kingdom of God and part of the Freedom Ministries family!
