What steps must I take to put God first in my life, what is the first step to a new Christian life? How do I keep sin away? I pray to God every night. What do I say?
Accept Jesus as Lord and God of your life and read God's word. Accept Him as your Savior. Keeping sin away is a decision you must continue to make. The enemy will constantly try to attack you in new ways. The good news is, that the longer you choose to turn away from sin the easier it gets. Avoid situations and people that will help you fall into sin. Galations 5:22-25 says this: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. When you pray to God remember that he loves you and wants to see you succeed. You need to pray about the things that are in your heart. I would also suggest as a new Christian to pray the Lords Prayer found in Matthew 6:9-13.
