Follow Jesus? 

Ok…but why? And to where? And for that matter…how?
Well friend, we’re glad you asked! Following Jesus is the most important thing you could ever do.
Following Jesus is all about having a relationship with Jesus. It’s about a direction. It’s about experiencing all that you were meant to be and everything that you long for. You were created to know Jesus and for Him to be a part of your life and it is not a coincidence that you stumbled upon this page. He has something to tell you!
You are loved, so much that He would die for you!
You were created for a purpose and that includes Jesus and following Him.
The “why” of following Jesus can be summed up in this…He has something you need!
The Bible tells us that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. ( Romans 3:23) It also tells us that the wage (payment) of our sin is death. (Romans 6:23) Yes, we will all eventually die but this death that is referred to, is death apart from God with no hope for eternity. Jesus wants us to have “everlasting life”. That is, life with God, in heaven, for eternity. That’s the specific reason why He came to earth as a baby, giving up His place in heaven with His Father. (John 3:16) There’s a problem though. Our sin prevents us from being anywhere near God. He is Holy. He is perfect. His perfect holiness and our sin cannot share space. We need our sin gone so that we can fellowship with God. That’s where Jesus comes in. Jesus took the payment for all our sin. In his death on the cross 2000 years ago, He covered all our sins with his blood and God was satisfied with that payment on our behalf. When God looks at us now, He sees Jesus’s blood, which perfectly removed all our sins. Jesus made a way to perfect our imperfections and give us a ticket to heaven. We need Jesus. Without him, there is no possible way of doing enough good or not doing bad to gain access to God. Jesus is the Way , the Truth and the Life. No one gets to the Father (God) without going through Him. (John 14:6 ) meaning, there is no other way to get to God. Any effort you make by yourself isn’t going to work.
The “where” of following Jesus shakes down to…wherever He leads!
Jesus will go with you. This is the relationship part of the equation. He will never lead you anywhere he is unwilling to go with you. Remember he  is also God and he is perfect and he will not tag along on your sin. Without him there to keep you safe, you will find trouble. But seek his will and let him guide you and you will find abundant life and unspeakable joy!
The “how” of following Jesus is simple…grab on and hold tight!
Jesus will never leave you or forsake you. He’s got your back and will fight (those invisible battles) for you. Read the Bible (His Word), talk to Him through prayer and find other Jesus followers to help you understand what He might be telling you. This is where He will meet you, comfort you, give you strength and wisdom and where you will find meaning & purpose in this life. The longer you “walk” with Jesus and the closer you follow Him, the more you begin to look like Him and others will notice. It’s a great place to be!
If you are looking for a group of Jesus followers, we can help! This is not an adventure to be traveled alone. Sometimes following Jesus is tough. You will need support and encouragement from other followers. The things of this world have a very strong pull and its lures are very addictive. Jesus wants to break us free of those things that will ultimately kill us and prevent us from the best life he has to offer.
