Those fervent in evangelism look for every opportunity to share the gospel. They sometimes have opportunity to lead people to Christ they may never see again. How do you help such a new convert?

Never underestimate the importance and power of prayer. Pray daily for them those first few months after their conversion that God will not only help them grow, but also cause believers to come around them who can be of help and encouragement. I know of many situations that God brought the right people across their path, the new convert told them of their conversion, and those people then helped the new convert grow.

Recommend that they find a Bible believing church in their community and begin faithfully attending. By this I mean a church where the pastor explains sections of the Bible paragraph by paragraph during Sunday sermons. If they have found that, they have usually found a Bible believing church.

Obtain their address and send them an item that will help them grow as Christians. Our devotional 31 Days to Living as a New Believer receives an excellent response.

If appropriate, give them your name and address and encourage them to call you whenever you can be of help. You might also get their phone number and ask permission to call them occasionally to see how they are doing in their new walk with Christ. (I do not recommend doing either of those with a person of the opposite sex because of how it can be misunderstood.)

Whatever you do, never hesitate to lead someone to Christ because you may never see them again. If they sincerely come to Christ, regardless of what happens after that, you will see them again in the presence of God.
