The first step in following Jesus is repentance and faith. We must turn away from our sins and selfish ways, and place our trust in Christ as our Savior and Lord. Through repentance and faith, we receive forgiveness of sins and newness of life in Him.

2: Renunciation of the World (Matthew 16:24)

Following Jesus requires us to renounce the ways of the world and take up our cross daily. We must be willing to surrender our own desires and ambitions, and submit ourselves completely to the will of God.

3: Love for God and Neighbors (Mark 12:30-31)

Jesus taught that the greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. As His disciples, we are called to love God wholeheartedly and to show love and compassion to others.

4: Service and Humility (Mark 10:44)

Jesus exemplified servant leadership and called His disciples to follow His example. We are called to serve others with humility and compassion, putting the needs of others above our own and using our gifts and talents to glorify God and build up His kingdom.

To follow Jesus means to obey His commandments and live according to His Word. As His disciples, we are called to abide in His Word, allowing it to dwell richly in our hearts and guide our thoughts, words, and actions.

6: Seek the Kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33)

Jesus taught us to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, trusting that all our needs will be provided for. As His disciples, we are called to prioritize the things of God above all else, seeking His kingdom and His will in all that we do.

7: Follow Jesus’ Example (John 13:15)

Jesus is our ultimate example of how to live a life of faith, love, and obedience. We are called to follow in His footsteps, imitating His character and conduct, and allowing His life to be reflected in ours.

8: Perseverance in Faith (Matthew 24:13)

Following Jesus requires perseverance and endurance, especially in the face of trials and tribulations. We must remain steadfast in our faith, trusting in God’s promises and persevering until the end.

9: Fellowship with Christ (John 15:4)

As His disciples, we are called to abide in Christ and remain in intimate fellowship with Him. Just as branches draw nourishment and strength from the vine, so we are to remain connected to Jesus, finding our life and sustenance in Him alone.

10: Testifying to the Gospel (Acts 1:8)

Finally, as followers of Jesus, we are called to be His witnesses and proclaim the good news of salvation to the world. We are to share the hope and love of Christ with others, inviting them to come and follow Him.
