Knowing Jesus

In choosing to “Know Jesus” you have ventured into discovering a relationship that is like no other. Just like other relationships, “Knowing Someone”, especially the divine person of Jesus Christ, will take you spending time with that person. Here are some key points that you should know:

#1 – God loves you, and He loves you with a love that you don’t know anything about, because there is no human love comparable to divine love. God loves you. He wants to forgive you. He wants to have fellowship with you.

“I have loved you with an everlasting love.” — Jeremiah 31:3

#2 – God loves you so much that he sent his one and only son to this earth to die for our sins.

“For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16

#3 – No matter who you are or how you’ve lived your life, God will receive you into His family. He will change you and make you complete. Trust Him as millions of others have done and experience His mercy for yourself.

“I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” — Jeremiah 32:27

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in.” — Revelation 3:20

#4 – God isn’t waiting to judge you. God isn’t waiting to condemn you. He’s waiting to receive you with mercy, with love, with open arms, and forgive all your sins. Will you come to Him? Will you turn from your sin and promise to live for Him?

“If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” — Romans 10:9

What’s Next?

You must first admit that, like everyone else, you are a sinner. Being sinners means that we are imperfect and do wrong; we fall short of God’s perfect standard. It also means we are separated from Him and deserve His judgment.

But He loves us! God sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. He died for your sins. He was punished so you don’t have to be. Not only that; death did not defeat Him. After three days, Jesus rose from the dead, alive again!

Trusting in Jesus’ sacrifice for you is the only way to find forgiveness from God and to begin a relationship with Him. We urge you to take this step of faith today. To do that, simply talk to God – this is called praying – and tell Him you believe in His Son. We suggest a prayer like this:

“Lord Jesus Christ, I am sorry for the things I have done wrong in my life. I ask your forgiveness and now turn from everything which I know is wrong. Thank you for dying on the cross for me to set me free from my sins. Please come into my life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and be with me forever. Thank you Lord Jesus, Amen.”
