Why Follow Jesus?
This is one that you can test, but in the end you just have to take on faith, The reason I believe is because when I was searching through all the different religions,
I was studying and I ended up back at the Bible and I said you know I just don’t want to go back, I don’t want to go back, I grew up in Christianity, I gave my life to volunteering and building the church and they just threw me out the first time I messed up. I didn’t want to go back, but one thing that I missed during my 20s, that I had growing up was Jesus, so I took out my trusty red Thompson Chain Reference bible and I said “I want to see what Jesus says, for those who maybe haven’t read a bible, some bibles have the words of Christ in Red, so I looked for them because I wanted to know why my life was so terrible, and the first words are Matthew 3:15 “Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.” And that hit me like a ton of bricks, so I looked for the next red letters, Matthew 4:4 “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” THIS IS WHAT I JUST SAID, THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR, Matthew 4:7 “It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.” And I said “But God what can I do? How can I get over my unbelief?” and the next red letters said “Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” Matthew 4:10
How? I asked God Matthew 4:17 “Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” I said repent? But why, will you let me do what I want to do? Fulfill MY dreams? “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19 and look where I am today? Then I said “But How?” Matthew 5:3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Verse 4 “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”
I dare you to do it, get a bible with read letters, of go to a website that has red letters like kingjamesbibleonline.org read just the red letters, you will fall in love with Jesus. Even a strapping hetero male will fall in love with Jesus.
