Who is Jesus?
Jesus is the Lamb of God, that takes away the sin of the world.
Through faith in Jesus, our sin is forgotten by God, and we receive his righteousness. (Ephesians 2:8, Romans 3:22) We can approach the throne of God and address him as our father. (Matthew 6:9, Luke 11:2) Jesus made this possible. (John 14:6)
I'm basically a good person. Do I still need Jesus?
Sin means "missing the mark", to fall short of doing what is right. Sin can be intentional or unintentional. Consider the wrongs done to you, and the wrongs you have done to others, as sin. Even with the best intentions, we have missed the mark.(Romans 3:23)(Romans 6:23)
God's Gift Of Life is offered to everyone.
Our relationship with God is restored through the sacrifice of his son. When we acknowledge that Jesus died for our sins, and was raised from the dead, we become the children of God. (Galatians 3:26)(Romans 10:9)
Our good works do not make God love us more, and our sin does not make God love us less. God has shown his love, in that while we were sinners Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) If God did not withhold his son, while we were sinners, what would he keep from us as his children?
You can receive Christ right now by faith through prayer:
(Prayer is talking to God)
God knows your heart and is not so concerned with your words as He is with the attitude of your heart. The following is a suggested prayer:
"Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be."
Does this prayer express the desire of your heart? If it does, I invite you to pray this prayer right now and Christ will come into your life, as He promised.
