Deciding to follow Jesus

Hopefully from reading my blog it should be crystal clear that I love Jesus and that He is my everything, without Him I am nothing.

If you would like to follow Jesus and therefore receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, please pray the prayer below (taken from The Everyday Life Bible)
You loved the world so much that You gave Your only begotten Son to die for our sins so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
Your word says we are saved by grace through faith as a gift from You. There is nothing we can do to earn salvation.
I believe and confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is Your Son, the Saviour of the world. I believe He died on the cross for me and bore all of my sins, paying the price for them.
I believe in my heart that You raised Jesus from the dead and that He is alive today.
I am a sinner and I am sorry for my sins and I ask You to forgive me. By faith I receive Jesus Christ now as my Lord and Saviour. I believe that I am saved and will spend eternity with You! Thank You, Father. I am so grateful! In Jesus' name, amen.
If you have chosen to pray this prayer, congratulations, it is a decision you will never regret.
The next steps to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ are to:
1. Get a bible and start reading it every day. I can highly recommend The Message bible (by Eugene H. Peterson) and The Everyday Life bible (by Faith Words, containing the Amplified Old Testament and the Amplified New Testament), with Notes and Commentary by Joyce Meyer).
2. Chat with Jesus Christ everyday. Remember to listen as well as talk.
3. Find a local church you can go to each week, that has Jesus teaching . It is great if they have regular small group meetings during the week too, so you can be encouraged by other Christians, and be an encourager too.
