How Can I Follow Jesus?

Becoming a follower of Jesus is the best thing you can do with your life!

The bible tells us that "if you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" [Romans 10:9] - and this means that you will become a Christian!

If you don't think you are following Jesus right now, but you would like to know what to pray so that you can, then here is a prayer for you to pray.

A Prayer To Become a Follower of Jesus

Lord Jesus, I am sorry for my wrong doing.  Forgive me for being separated from you and other people.

I receive you into my life as Lord.  Lead me from now on.  I surrender to You.

I believe You are alive and are with me now.  I accept you into my life.  Help me to live for You.

Thank you for your gift of eternal life for now and forever.  Amen.

God loves me.

God loves me no matter what I have done.  God simply loves humans whoever they are.  In fact, I cannot make God love me any less or any more, His love for me is already complete.  God is for me, not against me.  God loves me!

I have sinned.

Some things I did on purpose, some things I did and didn’t realise how much hurt it would cause.  I am not perfect and even though I am not as bad as some, I have done some things that I would say are wrong.  I have thought some things that are not right.  Sin is living for myself and not considering how that could damage others and myself.  Sin is when I am selfish.

Christ died for me.

It is an undisputed fact of history that Jesus died on a cross.  Jesus lived a perfect life and God accepted this life as a payment for the sins that we have committed.  Jesus’ death on the cross was the perfect sacrifice and payment for everything we have ever done wrong in thought or deed.  Jesus died for me …this was the ultimate sacrifice!

I need to decide to live for God.

I have a decision to make.  I am not automatically made into a Christian by background or nationality, I have to actively decide to become one.  Changing my mind on how I live and turning to Christ and actually deciding to ask Him into my life, is the way I actually become a Christian.  I need to decide to ask for forgiveness and ask to receive the love of God.  I need to decide to live for God.
