If you receive Christ as Lord and Savior, you instantly are changed into a brand new creation! Life begins new.
This is what it means to be “a follower” of Jesus Christ.
You seek Him
You read the Bible in order to gain more faith
You learn the Christian walk day by day
You fellowship with other followers of Christ
You become more and more like Christ in your daily walk
You pray in faith according to His will
What Scripture teaches us about following:
Romans 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
Romans 6:12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts
25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. 26 Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.
