If you are wondering about turning to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, but do not know what it truly means, then you have come to the right place! Truthfully, people who have perhaps lost the way of Christianity may not fully know what they are missing.
There are so many life benefits to following Christ that it is impossible to count them. For that reason, we at Jesus Lives – a non-profit evangelical grassroots ministry – would like to break down some of the top reasons why following Christ is the best thing a person can do in this life we have been blessed to have.
Your sins are forgiven
As humans, we are bound to sin against one another and sin against the Lord. However, Jesus forgives all who follow him. To be forgiven is a great joy and relief in life as you no longer have to continue to be burdened by guilt for your past songs, no matter how great or how small they happen to be. With forgiveness, followers are fully released from external perdition and are reconciled with God Himself!
You can work to stop sinning
The sad truth is that it is sometimes either, or more tempting to sin than it is to avoid it. However, as a follower of Christ, you know that not sinning is really one of your main jobs as a person on this planet. By remembering Christ and following his teachings, you can work towards being a person who is free of sin so that you no longer sin consciously or unconsciously.
You learn his teachings
Perhaps the greatest joy for any believer is to learn the teachings of Christ and try to apply them to your daily life. When he was a man, Christ was a man who exemplified what one can do when they are righteous and free of sin. While we will never come close to his wonders, we can try to live in the way that he lived and honor his teachings in our everyday life whether we are interacting with our family, our friends, or our congregation.
You have peace and joy that nothing can take away
As you live your life, you will have peace in your heart that comes from Jesus Himself. Nobody will be able to take that away from you no matter what happens. No matter what happens, you will also be able to take joy in the fact that Jesus is in control and that he will help guide every detail of your life with precision so that you can have perfect confidence in His care.
Your life finds a new sense of stability
When you turn your life over to Christ, you will have a guiding path that will help you make decisions that are best for you and your family from here on out. By following Christ, you will find a sense of stability that you have never known, and never enjoyed, before.
