Following Jesus

How Can I Follow Jesus?

Jesus Christ enlisted people to be His disciples using the words, “Follow Me” (Mark 1:17). To follow Jesus means to be a disciple of Jesus, a believer in Jesus, one who is committed to Jesus Christ the Lord. Every Christian is called by God to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Here are seven ways disciples follow Jesus:

1. By worshiping Jesus Christ – John 4:23-24

2. By spending time praying to God and learning His Word – Matthew 4:4; 6:9-13; 2 Timothy 3:16-17

3. By abiding in Jesus Christ (John 15)

4. By living a life of repentance and faithfulness – Luke 13:3-5; Hebrews 11

5. By serving the Lord together with the people of God, the Church – Acts 2:41-47; 1 Peter 4:7-11

6. By giving to the Lord, to His church, and to those in need – Acts 20:35; 2 Corinthians 5:15; James 1:27

7. By being a witness to Jesus Christ – Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 1:17; Acts 1:8
