Following Jesus?

Discover purpose. TODAY!

What is your purpose? Why are you here?

If you have never believed in Jesus and completely followed Him, you don’t really have life.  Some people call it being saved or salvation, but when you fully follow Jesus you receive not only forgiveness but eternal life AND a life #today! that is full of purpose. Here’s something Jesus said about life:

…“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. John 14:6 (NLT)

Jesus is the life. Following Him is the only way to really know God. It’s easy to become a Jesus follower, but in order to have brand new life, you have to be willing to give up everything else. Don’t worry! You don’t have to do that alone. Jesus sends us the power we need to change by the Holy Spirit. If this doesn’t make sense yet, that’s okay. You don’t have to understand it all to find life. You just have to be willing to believe.

Are You Ready To Believe and Follow Jesus?

First, you have to believe that Jesus is God’s Son who died for you and rose again (came back to life). God did all that, just because He loved you.

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NLT)

God loved us even though we have a problem. We mess everything up. The Bible calls our mistakes sin. It’s because of sin that there’s death in the world. But God wants us not to die, but to live forever with Him.

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NLT)

Everyone has sinned, and the paycheck of our sin is death. Don’t cash that check! Eternal life through Jesus is free!

If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:9-10 (NLT)

It really is that simple. Say it out loud and believe in you heart that Jesus is Lord, and that God raised Him from the dead and you will be rescued from sin and death! And there’s so much more to it than just eternal life. Imagine life #today! with purpose, and a clear conscience. There’s no way we could earn or deserve such a wonderful gift of new life – so God just gives it to those who believe. Are you ready to receive that free gift, right now?

Here’s How You Pray

Just talk to God in your own way. That’s all prayer is. Tell God you’ve messed up and need forgiveness. Tell God you want life and not death. Tell God you believe Jesus His Son is Lord, and that God brought Him back to life. Then just believe with everything within you, and thank God for Jesus and the free gift of forgiveness and eternal life! Tell God that from now on you will follow Jesus – and mean it!

Guess what? If you prayed that and believed it, you’ve just crossed over from death to life. And there’s so much more good stuff ahead! Following Jesus is the most incredible life imaginable. And #today!, you started that wonderful journey. You are now a brand new person!

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)
