Jesus living in you is the big important them of the Bible. That’s called Salvation, which is God forgiving you because of what Jesus has done for you through the cross and the resurrection. The best way to know what Jesus is like and to learn about Him is to read The Bible, which is God’s Word. Then, as you read about Him, the Holy Spirit gives you power for every day life. As the Holy Spirit guides you, you become more and more like Jesus, that’s called Sanctification. As you live for Jesus, you worship Him personally and corporately within a family of believers, called the Church. A big part of your calling as a believer is Evangelism, which is bringing the good news of salvation to help the lost in your world find Jesus.
