Who is Jesus?
Many people will acknowledge Jesus Christ as a great teacher, a good man, or even a prophet of God. Jesus was all those things, but they do not define who He truly is. The Bible tells us that Jesus is the Son of God, God in the flesh, God become a human being (see John 1:1,14). God came to earth to teach us, heal us, correct us, forgive us - and die for us! Jesus Christ is God, the Creator, the sovereign Lord.
Why do we need a Savior?
The Bible tells us that we have all sinned, we have all committed evil acts (Romans 3:10-18). As a result of our sin, we are worthy of God's anger and judgment. The only just punishment for sins committed against an infinite and eternal God is an infinite punishment (Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:11-15). That is why we need a Savior! Jesus Christ came to earth and died in our place. Jesus' death, as God in the flesh, was an infinite and final payment for our sins (2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins (Romans 5:8). Jesus paid the price so that we would not have to. Jesus' resurrection from the dead proved that His death was sufficient to pay the penalty for our sins. That is why Jesus is the one and only Savior! (John 14:6; Acts 4:12) Are you trusting in Jesus as your Savior?
Many people view Christianity as attending church, performing rituals, or living a “good life”. That may help you in your walk with God, but that’s not all there is to it. True Christianity is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Accepting Jesus as your personal Savior means placing your own personal faith and trust in Him. No one is saved by the faith of others or by doing good things. The only way to be saved is to personally accept Jesus as your Savior, trusting His death as the payment for your sins, and His resurrection as your guarantee of eternal life (John 3:16). If you want to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, pray the following words to God. Remember, it's not just saying a prayer or these particular words. Only fully trusting in Jesus Christ can save you from sin. This prayer is a suggestion to show your faith to God, and to tell Him that you accept His son. "God, I know that I have sinned against you and deserve punishment. I know in my heart that Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so, that through faith in Him, I could be forgiven. I freely receive your offer of forgiveness and place my trust in You for salvation. I accept Jesus now as my personal Saviour, and Lord thank you for loving me, thank you for your wonderful grace and forgiveness; the gift of eternal life.
