- When we’re loved by God, we get to love him back! Ephesians 5:1-2 tells us how: “You are the children that God dearly loves. So be just like him. Lead a life of love, just as Christ did. He loved us. He gave himself up for us. He was a sweet-smelling offering and sacrifice to God.”
- Of course, leading a life of love in this world full of wrong things is not easy (Romans 8:17). We’ll definitely mess up sometimes.
- But no matter hard it may be, following Jesus will be totally worth it (Romans 8:18). One day, God’s family will live with him forever in a perfect, glorious world, where there’s no sickness or sadness or death or anything bad (Revelation 21:1-4).
- Until then, he’ll be right here with us, helping us to follow him and share the good news of his rescue with others (Matthew 28:18-20)!
And THAT’s why we follow Jesus!
