First Step: Follow

Committing Your Life to Christ

God Rules…Colossians 1:16-17 & Revelation 4:11

The Bible tells us God created everything and He is in
charge of everything.


We Sinned…Romans 3:23 & Romans 6:23

We all choose to disobey, or sin. Sin separates us from
God and deserves God’s punishment of death.


God Provided…John 3:16 & Ephesians 2:8-9

God sent Jesus to rescue us from the punishment we
deserve. Jesus alone saves us. It’s something we, as
sinners, could never earn on our own.


Jesus Gives…Romans 5:8 & 1 Peter 3:18

He lived a perfect life, died on the cross for our sins, and
rose again. Because Jesus gave up His life for us, we can
be welcomed into God’s family for eternity.


We Respond…John 14:6 & Romans 10:9-10, Romans 10:13

  • Believe in your heart that Jesus alone saves you through what He’s already done on the cross.
  • Repent, turning from self and sin to Jesus.
  • Commit to follow Jesus.
  • Tell God and others that your faith is in Jesus.
If you are ready and willing to take this step…to follow
Jesus…and you believe in your heart that Jesus alone
saves you through what He has already done on the
cross, pray a prayer something like this:


Dear God,
I know I am a sinner. I have disobeyed and gone my own
way. My sin seperates me from you and I have earned
your punishment. Today I turn to you. I believe that Jesus
died on the cross in my place so that my sins can be for-
given. I believe Jesus rose from the dead and is alive. I
trust Jesus to save me. Thank you for sending Jesus to
live a perfect life and to take away my punishment.
Please forgive me. I want to follow you as my Savior and
as my Lord. Please help me to obey you and to live for
you the rest of my life.


If you trust Jesus to save you and commit to follow
Him you should know:
  • Your sins are forgiven
  • You are a Christian
  • You are a child of God
  • God will always be with you through the Holy Spirit
  • You will go to heaven when you die
Now you should:
  • Tell others
  • Find a church to be a part of
  • Take your next step…
