Who is Jesus? Take 2 seconds to forget the stereotypes, hype, and double talk. This page could be the most important thing you ever read.
Our Lord and Master
As God's Son, Jesus has authority over everything that exists, including US. Jesus allowed Himself to be subjected to humanity's cruelty and rebellion to the point of allowing Himself to be nailed upon a cross by the very hands of those He created. He took upon Himself the sins of the entire world to free us from sin and death. "All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him." Matthew 11:27
What Is A Christian?
It starts with an ordinary person, yet something is very different about this person once they become "a Christian." THE DIFFERENCE STARTS when this person believes in, professes, and follows Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. God made this way for you even when you didn't acknowledge or love Him - "But God has shown us how much he loves us—it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!" Romans 5:8
A Christian has been given a new life here on earth and eternal life after this one through what Jesus has done for them. A Christian lives the rest of their life seeking to be in closer fellowship with Jesus and looks forward to the day when they will be reunited with Him - "For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, neither the world above nor the world below—there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord." &nb Romans 8:38-39
How Can YOU Be A Christian?
Take a minute out. Pray to Jesus. Forget any scripts or formulas. Talk to Him like a real person who's right there with you. HE IS. Tell Him you believe Him - that He is the Son of God; that He died for your sins; that He still lives. Tell Him you are sorry for your sins. Ask Him to forgive you - HE WILL. A clean slate. Your life will be new. MOVE FORWARD WITH JESUS EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF EVERY SINGLE DAY AND NEVER LOOK BACK!
