The Christian life is not deciding to join a church. Being a follower of Jesus Christ is not about trying to find a religious system that fits your lifestyle. A follower of our Lord Jesus Christ is one who comes to the place of understanding his or her totally lost and perilous condition and embraces Jesus as the only solution. At that point, complete control of one’s life is given to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Did you get that. Complete control of your life. The Bible states it like this. 20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 (ESV) What I want now bows in submission to God’s revealed will. I willingly place myself under His lordship.
