HE IS GOD, AND HE LOVES YOU
Most people would agree that Jesus was a real historical figure. That is true, He was. However, He was more than just a man or a prophet. He was God. His life, His words, His deeds, and His love proved that to be true. What do we know about His love?
“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;).” (Ephesians 2:4-5)
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR YOU
Trying to live a good life is an admirable thing. Although many people make that a goal in life, our sin separates us from God and requires the payment of death (Romans 3:23, 6:23). The good news, though, is that Jesus made that payment for us by giving His life for us.
“Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day…” (1 Corinthians 15:3–4).
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
HE OFFERS LIFE TO YOU
Although medicine and technology have given humans a longer life span, physical death is inevitable. So what happens after we die? Is there such thing as everlasting life? The answer can be found in Jesus.
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life…” (John 3:36).
“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (John 11:25)
HE WANTS TO SPEND TODAY AND ALL OF ETERNITY WITH YOU
In order for you to spend today and eternity with Him, you must accept His gift of salvation. We need to be saved because we are lost in sin. We need to be saved because the result of our sin is eternity in Hell (separated from Him). Salvation is not found through good works or being religious. Salvation is found in Jesus. The work was done on the cross when He died for us.
For us, it is about trusting Jesus. It is about accepting the gift. Call out to Him, ask Him to come into your life, save you from sin, and give you His gift of eternal life.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” (Romans 10:9).
Saying yes to Jesus is not simply about avoiding Hell. Being a follower of Him offers so much more in this life and the next! If you want to know more about choosing Jesus or following Him, please let us know.
