Why Follow Jesus?….Because He loves You!

The book of Jeremiah chapter 29, verses 10-14 says,

The LORD proclaims…I will come and fulfill my gracious promise to bring you back to this place. For I know the plans I have in mind for you declares the LORD; they are plans for peace, not disaster, to give you a future filled with hope. When you call me and come and pray to me, I will listen to you. When you search for me, yes search for me, with all your heart, you will find me. I will be present for you declares the LORD and I will end all your captivity.”

Over and over in the Bible we hear how God loves us, how He made us, but most of all How He forgives us. Whenever you see the word  “LORD” written in the bible with all capital letters know that it is God, your Father speaking to you. In the above verses we see again How God has plans for us, but most of all if we seek Him with all our heart, if we call to Him, He will answer us… He will be present for us, and He will deliver us from our captivity.

When we see the word captivity most of the time a person in shackles comes to mind… What kind of shackles are holding you back from worshipping God, and following Him Completely….Call to HIm, Search for Him…and He will be present for you and remove those shackles, but you have to make the first move…it’s your decision.

 

If you have decided to follow Jesus and have said the prayer, and are willing to Seek God for His will in your life, then the next step is to read His Word(the Bible) daily, take it slowly, begin with the gospels (Matthew, Mark,Luke, John) and just go on from there.

May God always Bless You and keep you in HIs tender Care
