WHO IS JESUS?
When it comes to asking questions about God, Heaven, and most things spiritual, there is always one question we come around to: "Who is Jesus?" Many would falsely say that He was just a good man, or a teacher with good morals. In John 10:10, Jesus says, "I have come that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]. (AMP) Jesus was God in the flesh and commended Peter in Matthew 16:16 for realising this!
This was important because now we can realise how much God can be to us! He can be our Lord, but He also became man so that He can be our friend and our comforter! Two worlds, Heaven and Earth collided in Jesus Christ.
His Name is the Name above all names! He has defeated sin and death and brought us life. He is second to none and desires to have a relationship with you! That's why He is also called "Immanuel", which means "God with us".
Jesus Loves You!
Jesus loves you personally!
Often times, we think that we need to work to earn God's love. What a lie!
God loves us with no conditions or strings attached. The Bible says in Romans 8 that there is absolutely NOTHING that can separate us from God's love! He has offered to make us whole again and give us life as it should be, or righteousness, and all we have to do is turn to Him!
Life As It Should Be
To receive this amazing gift that Jesus has provided for us, the Bible says we must "confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead". Period. Full Stop. No works, no trying to earn your way into Heaven, nothing more, nothing less.
The Bible then goes on to say that all who call on the Name of the Lord will be saved.
Salvation is God's gift to the world. Anyone who wants it can have it. God's grace is His empowerment to go back to the Garden of Eden and live our lives as He intended. Overflowing and in relationship with Him.
If you would like to receive that gift today, you can pray a prayer of acceptance right now.
Dear Jesus, I accept the life that you are offering me. I know that I have fallen short, by living without you. I want to experience and live in the grace and love you have for me. Help me believe in You and walk in your love and empowerment. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Congratulations! We believe that praying this prayer with a repentant heart is truly the greatest decision you could ever make! You have begun on the greatest adventure of your entire life!
