THE RIGHT DECISION! 9-6-2014

I have decided to follow Jesus! I have decided to follow Jesus! I have decided to follow Jesus! No turning back. No turning back.

Though none go with me, still I will follow!  Though none go with me, still I will follow! Though none go with me, still I will follow!  No turning back. No turning back.

(This is a chorus I learned many years ago!)


There is the testimony of a man who was standing on the side of a street in Chicago with friends.  He heard a Christian group singing and sharing about Jesus on the other side of the street. As he listened, he said to his friends; “I am going over to the other side of the street and I am not coming back.”  He had heard the message of Christ and he had decided on a new direction for his life.  Many others came to Christ because of his choice.


Christ is offering to all “forgiveness of all sins.”  He is calling all to a “new life with God.”  He is calling us out of a self-centered life to follow him in the ways of God; adventuring with God.  He is calling all to a life that will have fruit lasting throughout all eternity.


As for me; after hearing a friend sharing about the reality of Jesus in his life, I came to Christ in November, 1956 in Japan. I was in the U.S Air Force at that time.  I wrote a letter to my parents telling them; “I have decided to follow Jesus.”  Life has taken some unusual turns, but it is a decision not regretted.  It gives purpose to life. I have found Jesus very real. He truly died for our sins and was raised from the dead to live forever.  As a gift from God, all can join him.  Trusting and following Christ is for you.
