New converts to Christianity need to grow in spiritual maturity, says the Rev. Billy Graham, responding to a question from a young believer who wants to know what they should be doing in their life before they go to Heaven.
In a question and answer column published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association on Monday, Graham was asked what a Christian is supposed to do after they're saved and profess their faith in Jesus Christ.
"I'm in high school, and I decided to give my life to Jesus at a church camp this summer. I know this means I'll go to Heaven when I die, but what am I supposed to do in the meantime?" the student asked. more >>
