I to must approach old close nit friends about my change to god and jesus

I myself have just found christ and need to let my friends just like another post i just read from “dresserandkeeper” I know as it is actually something to be proud of not ashamed. I feel i will loose a life long friend and most of my friends within my group if I do as we are a very tight nit group.

How to talk about my new life in Jesus to “old friends”

I have been feeling like i need to tell a few old friends that I have made a decision to give all of my life to Jesus. I’m not sure how to tell them. One in particular was a good friend and we drank beer together, smoked weed, hunted together, we spent lots of time together. He cusses like a sailor, and still enjoys doing all the other things to. Since my lifestyle has changed I’ve hardly spoke to him, he probably wonders whats wrong with me. I don’t want to avoid him, but I have just because I knew the Lord has been asking me to talk about whats changed in my life.

Worship

Over the years, I have heard many criticisms about the Charismatic form of worship. I myself came from a conservative evangelical church. Reality is, there is no perfect church and in whichever church I attend, there are negative aspects. So at the end of the day, I choose a church that connects me with God most, and that’s what I like about the Charismatic churches.

Head vs Heart

Do you have intimacy issues? What I’m referring to here is, do you feel difficult to give your heart to anyone, to trust anyone, and to feel much at all? Many of us suffer from intimacy issues but don’t realise it. We are not able to feel the emotions of things very much and may even be removed from the actual emotions itself.

What does a relationship with God look like?

The bible refers to God as our Abba Father – an intimate fatherly relationship. Unfortunately for many of us, a fatherly relationship creates a rather undesirable picture in our head based on our own relationship with our own father.
