I have decided to follow Jesus; No turning back, no turning back. The world behind me, the cross before me; No turning back, no turning back. Though none go with me, still I will follow; No turning back, no turning back. My cross I’ll carry, till I see Jesus; No turning back, no turning back.
Though the original writer of I Have Decided To Follow Jesus is unknown, the words still ring true and this hymn is widely used in worship! Choosing to follow Jesus means turning your back on the world and living according to Jesus’ example: “Then he said to them all: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.’” - Luke 9:23
It won’t be the popular way to live. It will require sacrifice. But with an eternity with God at the finish line, why would you turn back?!
