DEAR BILLY GRAHAM: Recently I gave my life to Jesus because of a man I met on an airplane. What should I do now? Z.S.

DEAR Z.S.: Im thankful youve given your life to Jesus Christ. Not only does it assure you of eternal life in heaven some day, but it assures you also of Gods constant presence and guidance right now.
Im thankful, too, that you realize your decision should be the beginning of a new life. Just as a baby is meant to grow up and become an adult, so you as a spiritual baby are meant to grow and become spiritually mature.
Just as a baby needs food, so you need spiritual food. For food, God has given us the Bible, which is his word. Set aside time every day to read Gods word, starting perhaps with one of the Gospels, such as John. God has also given us the spiritual food of prayer. Thank God for all hes done for you every day, and learn to bring every concern to him in prayer.
Finally, ask God to guide you to a church where you can learn more about Christ and have fellowship with other believers.
