Salvation What Comes Next?

Summary:

Accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior is only the start, why do we say

that?

There must be a hunger to know Him, to seek Him, to have that

personal relationship with Him on a daily basis.

Show Notes:

• Salvation is the starting gate. Reading, and abiding in His word to

find a further revelation of Him is another step.

• Paul had an initial meeting with Jesus on the road to Damascus,

but in Philippians he says: “That I may know him and the power

of His resurrection.”

• God is Love, and that is to be our expression to this earth.

• Psalms 51 “Create in me a clean heart, oh God.”

• Start where you are and seek the Lord, by opening your heart.

• Ask Him to show you what to do, how to do it. Then do it.

References:

And without faith it is impossible to please him, for he who comes to

God must believe that He is, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek

Him.

14. “He shall glorify Me; for He shall take of Mine, and shall disclose it

to you.

Quotes:

• If you are saved, you accept Christ as your savior and Lord, That’s

really the starting gate.

• If you read it (the bible) and you find a revelation of the Lord, you

are reading it right.

• Once you become a Christian your mindset has to change, you

have to love.

• And hey, the scripture jumps off of the page and where does it

land? In my heart.

• Paul knew that there was more to who the Lord was than what

was first experienced on the road to Damascus.

• The Lord knows exactly what is in our hearts.


Takeaway:

To find an honest relationship with God the Father, Jesus the Son, and

the Holy Spirit beyond simple salvation. To know His love for us and

through us.

Ron: 0:30 Hello Podcasters I am Ron your host and on this

podcast the family discusses what comes after our initial Salvation

experience. Are there some things that we can do to initiate our growth

and maturity in our relationship to God? I am praying that those who

hear this podcast can open your heart to some of the steps that the Holy

Spirit is revealing today to God’s sons.

Allan: 1:00 This is how you have a relationship with the Lord.

It is that basic relationship that needs to be identified for so many. It is

no good to just accept Christ. There is more to who they are than just

believing that He exists. Maybe we should talk about the very basic

fundamental. What is the next step once you accept Christ as your

Savior or Lord and Savior which every way you did it. What is the next

step. If you’re just going to exist based on that, yeah you will be saved

but to what point. People are asking about healings. There asking for

miracles and there is a reason why they are not working today. It is

because people are not making the next steps. You know they’re just

expecting you know they will pray Oh God please heal this, person. Oh

God please heal the nation. Oh God please do this and you are telling

God what you think He should do rather than listening to hear what He

has to say and then expressing what He is saying. What His heart is at

the moment.

Ron: 2:20 If you’re saved, you accept Christ as your Savior

and Lord, you don’t stop there. That’s really the starting gate in a walk

with God. From that point there needs to be a preparation of your heart

in seeking the Lord in definitely in abiding in His Word. And letting

that hunger increase in you. You may start out 5 minutes a day praying

in the Spirit or exercising tongues if you have that gift. Maybe you will

spend 5 minutes a day in the Word. I know it is just a beginning. There

has to be the foundation laid where there is a hunger and a pursuit every

day. I am a new Christian or a Christian. It doesn’t have to be a new

Christian. But I am not pursuing the Lord and yet I am praying for

miracles and signs and wonders. It is not going to happen because the

Lord, is not Santa Clause. He is requiring things of His people. He is

requiring a maturity. He is requiring a dedication. He is requiring a

depth of perception, revelation, all these things that don’t happen just

because you want them. They happen because you walk with Him

everyday and it is an exercise, it’s a drive, it’s a hunger and if you don’t

have that then you need to ask for it. Abiding in His Word, it’s so

important because His Word is where He connects His presence and in

His presence is how you get led. I want to be led. Get into His Word

where He can speak to you daily, and He can impart His nature daily and

He will. If you’re faithful He will.

Allan: 4:15 That is the real important part Ron because there

are so many different ways to read the scriptures. And I think the real

important one is, if you read it and you find a revelation of the Lord in it.

You’re probably reading it right. The Holy Spirit was given to teach us

and as we read and search for Him in the Scriptures. Don’t read it like a

story book. Don’t read it like it’s a fact book that you are trying to prove

a point. Don’t do that. Find the Lord in it because it is His expression to

the earth so that is what we want.

Ed: 4:53 The one thing is actually once you become a

Christian is that your mindset has to change. Because now you have to

love. If you don’t have that love and that love is an action. You start

acting on it with other people. You’ve got to love the people of the

world. You know, you don’t have to do the same things that their doing.

But the love that has to come from us, comes from God. And that is

what is going to change the whole earth. So, it is not a passive thing and

that unfortunately most Christians think that it is. If you cannot love

your neighbor how can you love God?

Dale: 5:37 I think one of the things that we’ve got to find is a

new definition for these words. And it starts, yes, with the definition

what does it means to love. And like what Allan was talking about

revelation. We need to have a new definition of revelation. A revelation

of God is just that. He reveals Himself to you and if that revelation is

true you’re going to be exposed to Him. Revelation is a relationship

with the Father. I would say, if I am studying the scriptures and I come

across an experience from reading that passage or that chapter. God

revealed Himself to me in that word. When He reveals Himself to you

He is initiating an experience, He is initiating a relationship and what is

your response. Psalm 51 is probably is the most complete simple

teaching how to have a relationship with the Father. My goodness I want

that. And it is amazing that one Psalm how much is in it. You can take

that thing and live in it and walk out the will of God for your life and be

pleasing to Him. That is the message that I would like to see this

podcast get out. Is an intimate one on one relationship with the Father

that is pleasing to Him. That we become a delight to Him. That yes you

can walk in completeness. You can finish. It is not just a throw it up in

the air and hope and pray that something will happen. That basic tenant

laid out in Psalm 51 is where we live. I open up the scriptures and I say

create in me a clean heart oh God. And hey the scripture jumps off the

page and where does it land. It lands in my heart, and I receive it. And I

thank Him for it because He revealed Himself to me and He gave me a

part of Himself that is mine.

Allan: 8:22 I really believe what we are talking about here is

what Paul’s drive was. That I may know Him and the power of His

resurrection. We all know that when He was Saul, if you will, he had

his salvation experience right. A little bit more intense than most

anybody else in the world. However, even though he had that personal

meeting it was not enough. He knew that there was more to who the

Lord was than what his first meeting revealed to him.

Ron: 9:00 You don’t come by that attitude as a light follower

of the Lord. In fact, I don’t think you come by that attitude on any

human level. It starts out with opening up to the Lord and let the Holy

Spirit walk you into it day by day. Because you’re talking about a

dedication that is not common to man but probably very seldom found in

humanity.

Allan: 9:26 If at all.

Ron: 9:27 It is so anti human, and anti-carnal mind and antihuman nature, but that doesn’t mean it is impossible. It just means you

start where you are at and that is always my mantra in the morning. I

start whether I feel good, where I feel bad, where I wake up happy,

where I wake up sad. It doesn’t matter. I start where I am at and begin

to seek the Lord. And anybody can do that. You just simply open your

heart, and you start seeking God. To me that gets rid of all the excuses.

No one is going to come before the face of God and said it was too hard,

I didn’t know how to do it. He makes the way so simple. You just have

to want to. And it is a day by day walk so you may walk one day

wanting to. The next day not so much, that’s you. That is not Him. He

is still there in His fullness. It is up to you to open your spirit to Him

every day. And to me it is exciting because I am realizing first off it is

not even up to me as I continue with my walk with God I am finding out

that I may have started out with a lot of vim and vigor and a lot of

zealousness, and I think most Christians do, new Christians, they start

with real zealousness and that begins to change because as you are in

His word, He starts transforming you and it becomes, His drive, His

faith, His hunger. It is a pretty imperceptible change but what ends up

happening is you come into a revelation that Christ dwells within me.

His word dwells within me. Christ dwells within me and as I connect in

daily with the Lord in His word, in worship, He takes over my life more

and more. And it is really exciting because there is an initiative that we

can take. It is not just I will sit on my butt and the Lord going to lead

me, nah, it won’t happen. But if I take and initiative every day to

approach Him then He starts working His Lordship and His will and

everything in me. His worship, the cleansing that Dale is talking about.

You know, that doesn’t happen because I want it to happen or because I

am a good person, or I am going to worship, you know clean up my life

or any of that. We are not going to get glory for a blessed thing. It is

initiative we take by faith, and He takes over.

Deborah::

us, and the Lord knows exactly what is in our hearts. You accept the

Lord, and the Holy Spirit comes into your life, you want to know more,

so you open up more and the way you open up is you ask. You ask the

Lord to show Himself to you. Ask Him to show you what you are to do.

And how you are to relate to Him and start doing it. Baby steps, more

and more that you do it the easier it will become. He requires more of

your time, requires more of your attention because He loves you and He

wants to know you. He wants you to know Him. It is all apart of our

walk with God.
