Sígueme, un llamado a vivir en Jesús (Follow Me — A Call to Live in Jesus) is the latest Spanish resource from Pacific Press Publishing Association and El Centinela magazine.

This is the first set of evangelistic Bible guides from El Centinela and is designed to guide readers to make a conscious decision for Jesus and commit to following Him.

The 12 carefully crafted lessons in this resource invite participants to delve into the magnificence of God, the centrality of Jesus and His teachings, the importance of prayer, the essence of salvation, the meaning of baptism, and living in God's saving grace, publishers said. It aims to provide an overall understanding of biblical truths and encourage and foster a personal commitment to making these truths a part of daily life.

A unique feature of the Sígueme studies is the inclusion of a QR code that provides the reader with access to exclusive commentaries on each lesson by such well-known pastors as Arnaldo Cruz and Roger Hernández.

These lessons can be used in many ways by people who wish to work to fulfill the gospel commission, the publishers said, including in small groups, for individual study, and with Bible study interests. Publishers also suggested they can be used in conjunction with public evangelism, in preparation for evangelistic meetings, and in pre-baptismal classes. “This latest Spanish resource from Pacific Press continues its commitment to sharing materials and spiritual nurture,” they said.

El Centinela magazine is one of the longest-running Christian magazines in the world, having reached millions of people with a message of positive living in the areas of family, health, and faith, publishers said. It is carefully crafted to address the life challenges of North American Hispanics with authoritative Bible-based content. A typical issue contains articles and columns on mental health, prophecy, and women’s issues. Likewise, it regularly includes content on healthy living and Bible doctrine, as well as Bible study enrollment information, and even recipes. It is published 12 times a year.
