more than just a man...
Who is Jesus Christ?
Some say Jesus Christ was just a man or a great teacher. But He is more than that…
In Colossians 2:9 it says Jesus was God in human flesh. He was fully man, but he was also fully God.
When Jesus died on the cross and was risen on the third day, He saved us from our sins so we can have eternal life. John 3:16 says “God so loved the world that he gave His only son, Jesus Christ, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life”
But the problem is… we are separated from God by sin.
We have all done, and said bad things, which the Bible calls sin. In Romans 3:23 “for everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death,” BUT there’s GOOD NEWS… “The free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord”.
Why did Jesus Christ have to come?
This video does a good job of explaining why we are in need of Jesus.
Jesus is the only way. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
Salvation: The means by which a person can receive eternal life through accepting Jesus Christ as his or her Lord and savior.
We cannot earn salvation. We are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, and believe that Christ died for your sins, and ask for forgiveness. He knows you and He loves you.
In Jesus Christ we are new creations given a chance to live right with God in His sight because of what His son has done for us.
If you would like to take the first step and have a relationship with Jesus Christ and receive His forgiveness of your sins…take this next step by praying a prayer like this and give Him permission to come into your life.
God, I know that I am a sinner and I am sorry for my sin. Help me to understand who you are and how I can know you better… I am willing. I thank you for sending Jesus Christ to die on the cross for my sin. Jesus, I ask you to come into my heart and my life right now. Be my Lord, savior, and friend. Help me to follow you all the days of my life. Thank you for forgiving and receiving me right now, Thank you that my sin is forgiven. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
