Hey thanks for the question!
Well first things first? Have you already accepted him as your savior? And believe in his resurrection?
That’s gotta be first, belief is key.
Secondly, I know first hand what it is like to be around people who aren’t Christian, or they at least don’t believe it anymore. My best advice for you would be to just know who you are, and that is a child of Christ! When you have friends that aren’t Christian, I like to think of it as a great ministry. I am not saying force things to them, cause I personally don’t like when people do that. But perhaps just let it be known that you are a Christian, and that it affects your life! Do not be tempted by others, cause GOD IS GREATER than those temptations. I find that it is very important to have friends who are also Christians though, just to kinda relate too more, and you could even have an accountability partner!
Here’s some things that I feel could help you strengthen your relationship with God! :]
1. Prayer- Prayer is suchhhh a big deal, and I always seem to blow it off as nothing, but honestly I know that prayer is the best way. Just talk to God, let Him know whats going on, be honest with him. He knows your heart, and praying and submitting things to Him is so great. If your like me, you don’t always pray when you should. Maybe pray when you get up in the morning, or before bed; in the car, in the shower, or even better, set aside a time everyday to pray.
2. Bible- Read your bible! I have been trying to get better bout it this year, and I have an accountability partner. We try to keep each other in check on what we read that day, ask for prayer requests and such! It will reveal a lot to you about God’s character, and the type of relationship he wants to have with you. If you haven’t read a lot of the Bible, or don’t know where to start, I would start with James. It literally covers a lot of the main aspects of how Christians should be kind of.
3. Friends/Community- I seriously cannot stress how important it is to form friendships and relationships with other believers. I can honestly tell you that my BEST friends are all believers, and they seriously can help me so much. Also getting involved in a ministry, youth or adult I am assuming? Maybe if you like music or working with children? I work at a summer camp for kids and it’s honestly so rewarding to help kids learn about Jesus. Heck, I probably learned more that summer than any other year in my life.
I honestly hope this helps, and feel free to ask any questions. I am praying for you, and I hope you continue to pursue this relationship with Christ!
Just follow Jesus, read about his teachings, pray, meet with other believers, and make an effort to do so. It will change your life, I promise :]
