Beginning to Follow Jesus
Jesus came to be with us and extend his power and presence to us. It is in Him that we experience full and meaningful life. Because of humanity’s need for grace and forgiveness from our sin, Jesus was sent to live a perfect life, died, rose again, and became victorious over sin and death.
When we decide to turn from our way of life and give our lives to Jesus, He gives us hope for today and for the future.
Romans 10:9 says:
“If you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
As the verse above says, deciding to follow Jesus is confessing what you believe in your heart. If you want to say a prayer to follow Jesus right now, say this prayer of surrender to Jesus:
I’m praying this prayer because I know that I have done wrong by living without You. I am sorry and I trust that You will forgive me. I accept Your love and grace for me and ask that You would be my leader and Lord. Help me believe in You and love You every day, and help me to show the world what You are like and how great Your love is. In Jesus’ name, amen!
