God is good. But if we’re His creation, why are we so bad? When we try to do what’s right, our desire for sinful things often takes over. If God doesn’t like evil, why does He allow it to exist?
When we think about praying for, and sharing with, friends and family members who reject Jesus, we love passages like 2 Peter 3:9, “The Lord is . . . patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” But this doesn’t mean that everyone will eventually repent and accept Jesus Christ. Jesus plainly said in Matthew 7 that most people don’t find the way to eternal life.
The phrase “actions speak louder than words” is not in the Bible, but it’s true! You can tell your family and friends about God, but until they see Jesus making a difference in your life, they may not listen.
As Christians, we want our family members to know God’s forgiveness and love. We especially want them to go to Heaven. Sometimes, our family members reject Jesus. They might even mock or insult you for following Jesus if you live in a place with very few Christians. When your family rejects Jesus, what do you do?
When you accept Jesus, should you FEEL different? Some people have a big, emotional event while others might grow in faith gradually. Emotions can be misleading, so let’s see what the Bible says happens after you accept Jesus.

Being a Christian involves turning away from sin; however, we still mess up sometimes. We can learn to rely on the guidance of the Holy Spirit to avoid sin. Here are five tips for avoiding sin.
It is very important to let go of your past sins. If you have faith that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, you don’t need to feel guilty. After you go to God and confess, or agree, that you have done wrong the Bible says God forgives you and cleanses you from all unrighteousness.
Who would you rather be like: A preacher who showed up to God’s house bragging about his own goodness? Or the humble criminal who knew he was unworthy and desperately needed God’s forgiveness?
