To be a follower of Jesus – means you are committed to him as our Savior and Lord. This means we want him to be in full control of our lives instead of us trying to run them ourselves.
Give Him Control.
Following Jesus starts with believing. Believing comes with turning over the control of your life to him.
Following Jesus also means we seek to obey him every day. He knows what is best for us and has told us how he wants us to live in his word, the Bible. So, once you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, dive into the Bible and start to learn and grow in his word.
Finally, following Christ means seeing others through his eyes. He loved the world so much that he was willing to give his life for our salvation. The Bible says, ‘Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us’ – Ephesians 5:1-2
