Now that you are one with Jesus,
it is important that you learn His ways.
If you want to be happy, live what Jesus taught.
And how do you know what He taught?
Easy -- study the Bible!
Before you were "born again",
the Bible was probably very difficult for you to understand.
But now that you have received Jesus as your Saviour,
He will help you to understand His Word.
Some good beginning verses are laid out for you here,
but you will want a Bible of your own to keep with you.
The Authorized King James Version of the Bible is the best,
the oldest, and most trusted, but there are several other versions as well.
(The revised or new versions of the Bible often have many errors, actually change the meaning in some places, and use modern words incorrectly in place of the old words.
It's really best to just use the good, old-fashioned King James Bible
and keep a dictionary handy to look up the harder words.
Get help in your studies from others who understand
the King James Bible, if you need it.)
The best little study Bible for a new believer has to be,
The Christian Life New Testament.
It is available in the King James Version
and has great outlines for you to follow and study,
that will answer just about any question you have right now, like,
"Who is God?"; "How should I pray?"; "Who or What is the Holy Spirit?";
"Can I really trust the Bible?"; and much more.
(If you use this little New Testament Bible
you will still need a bigger Bible that has
both the Old Testament and the New Testament).
If you have children, they will easily be able to understand
The Picture Bible, which tells the great and important
stories of the Bible in color pictures with captions,
and is great for ages 3-12. (Read it aloud to the younger children;
older ones will enjoy reading it to themselves over and over.)
These old stories are referred to many times in the New Testament,
so it is vitally important that both you and your children understand
them if you want to understand the New Testament.
When they are able, they can then read the full Old and New Testaments
in their 'grown-up' versions of the Bible.
If you really love studying God's Word,
two absolutely wonderful study books to help you are:
The American Dictionary of the English Language
by Noah Webster, 1828
Abingdon's Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible,
or Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible.
(The Abingdon's Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
lists every word that is in the Bible, where it is found in the Bible, and
tells what the original word in Greek or Chaldee was, and what it means.)
We all have a lot to learn! So we must,
"...study to show [ourselves] approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth,"
(II Tim 2:15)
and have joy in our lives in Christ!
