How to become a follower of Jesus

  • Decide you want a relationship with God.
  • Decide you want to be in God’s kingdom with Jesus as your king.
  • Decide your old value system was not right, and that instead you want to adopt and live by God’s value system of sacrificial love for the benefit of others. Jesus is our example, particularly his motivating values for life.
  • Tell God about all this, and that you want to be forgiven for the way you lived before.
  • Find a community of others who are similarly following Jesus and can encourage you as you grow in this new way of living.
  • The Bible (especially the New Testament part of it) is a great resource for learning how to follow Jesus.
  • When you have difficulties, tell God about them and ask God for help to live well.
