Having a personal relationship with Christ is not about religion. It's about Him living inside you... loving you unconditionally and not only forgiving you of your sins, but completely forgetting them altogether.
You can have a personal relationship with Jesus just by asking Him into your heart. All you have to do is pray this simple prayer..."Lord Jesus I believe in You...forgive me of all my sins, Come into my heart and fill me with Your Spirit...help me to walk with You all the days of my life. In Your precious name I pray, Amen.
So when you aren't sure how to react to a situation... take a moment to think, What would Jesus do ? You probably already know the answer, it is just a matter of doing what you know in your heart is right.
