“Come, Follow Me” had its birth in a dream. After forty years of practice as an oncologist, Ralph Johnson answered a call of God to treat cancer of the soul in the jail and prison system. A common obstacle to evangelism was the free-of-cost salvation and cheap grace believed by many of the inmates. Then came a dream that gave five steps telling what it really means to follow Jesus.
The first initial of the steps formed an acronym that spelled GRACE. This book discusses each step: Godly sorrow, Repentance, Accountability, Counting the cost, and Endurance, together with personal experience of the author. Himself now recovered from alcoholism and substance abuse, this former physician calls those bound by life-controlling behaviors to follow the one person who can truly set the captives free…Jesus.
“His divine power has given us everything we need for life and goodliness… so that through them, you may escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”
–2 Peter 1:3,4
