Are You A Follower of Jesus?

Are You A Follower of Jesus?


This message has one simple question…

Are you one who calls himself a Christian?


What does being a Christian mean to you?

Obeying the ten commandments

and the golden rule?


Is it a way of life or simply a formality?

Coming under the umbrella of Christianity?


Do you have a desire to seek

 after God’s holiness?

Do you want to be filled

 with his righteousness?


Living for Christ is making a commitment to him.

It’s a daily battle to have victory over sin!


It’s following Jesus no matter what the cost.

It’s laying down your life and taking up the cross!


It’s more than going to church and

 “doing your thing.”

A commitment to Christ is what you must bring!


Jesus said to “take up your cross and follow me.”

This is the place in life where you need to be!


You see, being a “Christian” isn’t simply a “title.”

It’s loving Jesus and obeying the truth of the Bible!


It’s into the arms of Jesus that you need to be leaning…

Allow him to bring to your life a Godly meaning!


Accept the life-changing power

 of Christ right now!

Won’t you come before him and humbly bow?


In Christ Jesus… You can be

a new person and BRAND NEW!

It is no secret how much he really

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
