BECOMING A FOLLOWER OF JESUS

Have you ever felt like something wasn’t right in the world; like something was broken? This brokenness is plain to see. It’s found on TV, in movies, online, and often in painful experiences and memories in each of our own lives. The Bible confirms that this brokenness is a reality and that there is indeed something broken in the world. The disease of imperfection separates us from God’s perfection.

– GOD HAD A PLAN

But God had a plan. He would send his own son to take away the sin of the world. This was God’s gift to the world: His master plan to fix what was broken in the beginning.

The Bible explains that Jesus came into the world to help; to make things right again. He came to express God’s love for people so that no one would ever have to feel alone or lost or disconnected from God ever again. Jesus was not only a great man, inspiring generations for good – he was also God-on-earth.

– EXPERIENCE LIFE TO THE FULLEST

As God among men, Jesus didn’t ask people for money or power. Instead, he invited individuals to follow him. Jesus wanted everyone to experience life to the fullest, the way God intended. So, he paved the way for every person to be reconnected to the God of heaven- forever.

Jesus died on a cross for the brokenness of all mankind. He took all of our darkness and disobedience on himself, paying the ultimate price for our sins. But, death could not contain him. Three days later he rose again, to live a new life. His victory over death makes it possible for us to have a new life and to be reconnected with God, our heavenly Father. Jesus offers this new life to everyone.

– SALVATION

Making Your Decision

The Bible says that becoming a follower of Jesus (a Christian) is easy. You simply need to accept that you can’t earn your way to heaven on your own. You may be a good person, but you’ll never be perfect in the way God is perfect.

You then need to believe that Jesus was God’s son and came to earth to help. He took care of your mistakes and imperfections so you can have a restored relationship with God now and forever. This is called salvation and it is God’s great gift to you.

Finally, you commit to becoming a follower of Jesus, inviting Jesus to lead your life. When you do this, God promises to send his Spirit to empower you, help you, and teach you how to live the great life He intends for you.
