Like birth that involves a child being born and gradually growing to an adult, so is Christianity. There is also birth and growth to adult hood in Christianity. Christianity is not a Religion it is a understanding of the death on the cross of
Calvary. To the world dead on the cross is foolishness but unto us it is power leading to salvation. This are the 5 steps to Christian growth...
1 Understanding Your Helper: Your helper to Christianity is the Holy Spirit. Understanding the Bible is a very difficult task. Infact you can't understand the Bible as a human. You need divine interpretation to better understand the Bible. The Holy Spirit is a person that lives in a body (you.) He is going to teach you the power of resurrection.
2 Read The Bible: Do not assume you already know what is written in the Bible. You need to read it. Don't speed read it like one of your story books, take some time, wonder at the words you see, ask questions, tell the Holy Spirit to interpret what you can't understand. If you are a beginner, the start with Mathew, Mark, Luke and John since they are narrating the story of Jesus Christ.
3 Daily Devotionals: These are short articles written by those with a better understanding of the Bible (called Bible Scholars.) They choose scriptures in the Bible and explain the human connection to that particular scriptures. Sometimes it is hard to pick up and Bible and just start writing. It is easier to turn to daily devotionals if you have such a problem. You will be reading the Bible and then getting explanation to it. That is like killing two birds with one stone eh.
4 Fellower Believers. Not all believers will encourage you in the faith. This is a very big problem for those of you that will start with the faith. But there are those that can really help you grow in the faith. Find them by using the spirit of descendent. This is for the advanced Christians.
5 Prayer: The Bible has a way it puts it that sounds so good ''prayer is the key, prayer is the key, prayer is the masters key, Jesus started with prayer and ended with prayer, prayer is the masters key.'' That sounded like a little song right. Some people think praying is weak, it is not, the way we talk to God is called prayer. Talk to God, ask him questions, share your frustration and pain with him. He is going to respond to you.
