Because of his great love for us, Jesus came to earth to heal our broken hearts and give us freedom from our own mistakes and the evil around us. He loves us unconditionally and completely. Jesus, miraculously and mysteriously, pursues a relationship with each of us that is born out of this love.
Why would I follow Jesus?
The Bible teaches that each of us is loved by God and created in His image. We are designed to find life in a relationship with God. But no matter how “good” we may be, we become separated from God by our own mistakes. These mistakes, sometimes referred to as “sin,” leave us broken-hearted and searching. The result is a feeling of brokenness and despair.
How do I begin to follow Jesus?
Confess and believe. That’s all it takes to know and follow Jesus. You can confess to Jesus in your own words, or pray the following:
“Dear Lord Jesus, I admit that I’ve fallen short. I’ve sinned and need your forgiveness. I believe that You lived, died, and rose again so that I could be connected to God. Heal my broken heart. I confess you as my Lord and commit my life to You. I give you my past, present, and future. Take my life and use it. I give it to You. Amen.”
The decision to follow Jesus is only the beginning
Following Jesus is about much more than going to heaven. Following Jesus means knowing joy and living a full life here on Earth. It means admitting to shortcomings, relinquishing control and devoting your life to His purposes. Once you do that, you’ll never be alone again. His spirit will live inside you and will guide you.
