Throughout the Gospels, Jesus continually said, "Follow me." What does it mean to be a follower of Jesus? How do you become a follower of Jesus?
His love includes you. For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
He has new life for you. I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
"Sin" is walking our own way in rebellion against God's will. When we walk away from God, we walk away from life.
Everyone has sinned.For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
Sin brings death. For the wages of sin is death. Romans 6:23
Our own efforts cannot save us. As sinners, we futilely try to find life's true meaning in the wrong ways and wrong places.For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
Jesus Christ died in our place. But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
He is the way to new life. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17
He gives inner peace. We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1
He gives freedom. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
He gives eternal life. But the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
Admit and confess your sins to God. He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy. Proverbs 28:13
• To acknowledge your sins. • To be sorry for your sins. • To confess your sins. • To be willing to forsake your sins. • To have your life changed by Christ.
Forgiveness is promised. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
Christ is ready. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will go in. Revelation 3:20
Receive Him now. Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12
Make a Bold Change. Lord Jesus, I want to have life. I know that I have sinned. I need Your forgiveness and pardon. I believe that You died and rose again for my sins. I now accept You as my personal Savior. I will forsake my sinful life. I know that Your grace and power will enable me to live for You. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me and for giving me a new life.
If you have surrendered your life to Jesus and chosen to follow Him, let us know about it. We want to help you take the next steps in your new life as a Christ-follower.
