I HAVE DECIDED TO FOLLOW JESUS
We want to create an excitement in serving the Lord that would cause souls to follow Jesus.
I Have Decided to Follow Jesus
Do you know the old song, "I Have Decided to Follow Jesus"? This old hymn means more and more in the world we live in today. Many believe they don't have to follow Jesus. They feel as though their lives should be lived by putting themselves first and doing what makes them feel good...but how is that working for folks these days?
It's easy to get swept into the stormy waters our world is experiencing. These storms may be 'betrayal', 'addictions', 'lack of finances' or a host of other issues. Without God in our lives, how can our vessels make it through safely? Wouldn't you rather sail your vessel in calm, peaceful waters by knowing the Master was leading you? Life would be so much simpler to live.
Is it time to 'Look up and Live' and ask the Lord to guide your vessel by deciding to follow Jesus?
The saying 'Look Up and Live' has been quoted at the Church of God of the Union Assembly at Dalton for many years. So much so, that it has become the church's motto and does have a powerful message. If you think about it, even in natural life, we feel better when we hold our heads up instead of looking down, feeling defeated. So, as you can see the name of this site goes right along with deciding to follow Jesus by looking up and living a new life.
Note: There are many more sayings that have been heard over the years that will help you go through tough times if you will let them, such as...
"If you fall down, just get up and brush the dirt off your knees and try again." "Isn't that rich?" (referring to a verse or point in the bible).
