I have many skeletons in my closet and He conquered every one...
- Mark Hall from Casting Crowns
"Why should I follow Jesus?" The reality is, God loves you. He wants you to experience abundant peace and eternal life. He loves you so much that He sacrificed His only son to die for your sins.
That's great that God loves me, but why should I follow Him?
God did not make robots to automatically love and obey Him. He gave you free will and a choice. All too often, this free will causes a separation from God due to disobedience.
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard. - Romans 3:23
The good news is that you matter to God. He’s given an avenue for forgiveness where you can restore your relationship with Him. He gave His son Jesus to pay the death penalty by sending Him to the cross and raising Him from the grave.
Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but He died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. - 1 Peter 3:18
So, now what?
It's not enough to just know about this, or even agree with it. Act on it.
1. Humbly admit to God that you need His forgiveness
2. Confess that Jesus is Lord and that He alone can save you
3. Believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead to pay for your sins
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. - Romans 10:9
