Jesus has called us to follow him in order to be saved from the wrath of God. The Bible says we become a new creation when we accept and follow Jesus. It is important for each of us to listen and obey what Jesus says.
He alone is the one true living God who took the form of a human being to deliver us from the hell which was our destination. We are to follow all of his words to get the real man whom the Lord created in the beginning.
It would be a wise decision for us to follow him as he is the source of life and he has the authority to deliver us from eternal death. The following bible verses will help us to know the reasons for following Jesus and how we would be benefited while we begin to follow him.
