Who is Jesus?
Jesus is the kindest person you will ever meet. He was a human, and is a personal friend who knows what we are going through and cares about us. He is also Divine – Son of the living God. This is good news, as we have a God who has been and understands what it is like to be human, and He is also the name above all names, and his star-breathing, storm-calming, miracle-working power is second to none. God is a safe place to put our hope in – He is much bigger than us, is more competent at life than we are, and has beautiful plans for you – which He intends to help you walk out! It sounds too good to be true… and yet it is truth. There is hope and love beyond your wildest dreams. There is only One who can love us like this and it’s our great joy to introduce you to Jesus.
How do I know Jesus cares about me?
Often we disqualify ourselves from God’s love because of our history, our failures and our shortcomings. Sin has separated us from God and we can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good work! However, He has made a way for us – that even the worst things you’ve done or have been done to you can be turned around! Nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Jesus. When Jesus died on the cross and rose again, He once and for all, conquered sin and became the pathway to God for any person who would choose Him. Only He has the power to free us from guilt, regret and shame to give us new life of wholeness. All we need to do is ask.
Romans 10:9 says that “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Salvation is God’s free gift to us and we become His children. It is an irrevocable acceptance into the family of God and it is an empowerment to live life wholly and fully with the purpose of reflecting God to the rest of His creation.If you are not sure whether you are right with God or you know in fact that you need Jesus in your life, you can choose to follow Him right now by praying a prayer of surrender to Jesus.
Dear Jesus, I’m praying this prayer because I know that I have done wrong by living without you. I am sorry and I trust that you will forgive me. I accept your love and grace for me and ask that you would be my Lord. Help me believe in you and love you every day, and help me to show the world what you are like and how great your love is.
In Jesus Name. Amen.
