Say Yes to Following Jesus
Jesus invites you into a relationship with Him as King. Jesus said "the time has come. The Kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news." - Mark 1:15
Salvation is a gift from God with no strings attached. "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not of works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's handiwork, created in Jesus Christ to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." - Ephesians 2:8-10
It's your choice whether you receive the gift of Jesus or not. It's your decision if you are going to follow Jesus on His terms. Luke 14:25-33 gives us His terms to follow Him.
Ready to make that life-changing decision. If so, express it to God. Tell Him, "God, thank You that You are God and I am not. I confess that I am a sinner and cannot earn or contribute in any way to a relationship with You but I thank You for sending Jesus to save me. It's all You and that's so beautiful and powerful to say that. Today I choose to follow You and I don't know what all that means but You have my life now and all the days of my life.I love you! In Jesus Name.".
