Do you remember when you first became a Christian? The joy of being introduced to Jesus is probably one of your most treasured memories. But do you also remember feeling overwhelmed by this completely new life? You probably had so many questions: What’s the Bible really about? What’s God like? And what does all this mean for how I live? These questions form the foundation for a healthy relationship with God and a strong Christian faith.
As Christians, we all need others to encourage, challenge, and teach us, but this kind of mentorship is critical in the early stages of a new Christian life. Now there’s a resource that can guide young Christians through their first steps in their walk with Jesus. Brand New is a brief and practical 40-day devotional for new believers.
Shilo Taylor wrote Brand New after years of serving in youth ministry. Her book provided a context and a solid foundation for new Christians she was mentoring. Taylor talks about this desire to equip new believers with the knowledge and skills to thrive as a Christian in this brief interview.
Calling all mentors
Are you a pastor, small group leader, or mentor? Are you reaching out to friends and family about your faith? Brand New is an essential resource for your ministry. Each day of Brand New focuses on one aspect of Scripture, God’s character, and the Christian life. Each daily devotion includes a key passage from the Bible, an explanation of the topic, a suggested Scripture reading, and reflection questions to help you discuss what God might be showing you together.
Investing time and energy into these relationships pays dividends down the road—for both the new believer and yourself.
Brand New comes out later this month—pre-order today!
