Why we need Jesus?

Are you aware that God loves you, created you, wants a relationship with you on this earth, to ultimately spend eternity in heaven with you? Yet to do this, God wants us to first get right with Him by doing just one thing, and that one thing is to ask Him into our hearts. Why? Because He created us and He loves us. God holds the great gift of eternal life and He offers it to us freely.

Because we live in a fallen world, a world full of uncertainty and disappointments, we often fail to recognize that God is always waiting for us to look to Him for guidance and for support. Often, the fast pace of life, the distractions and confusion of this world, and or the guilt over the mistakes in our lives drive us away from a merciful, gracious, and loving God.

 

The actual payment that God required from us was paid for us, by Jesus.

The Bible says that God will forgive those who place their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as their Personal Lord and Savior. This simple task along with asking God to forgive us of our sins, keeps us from God's wrath, the wrath that we rightfully deserve for our sins. God showed His mercy and love in giving us His one and only son as a sacrifice for us! The Bible tells us that there is only one God and only one way to God. "Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6. That means Jesus is the only way to get right with God. Through Jesus, God forgives 100% of our past, present and even our future sins, making us right with Him. All of this is possible by placing our faith and trust in Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

In John 3:16, the Bible speaks about Jesus Christ as our only Lord and Savior and the only true effective way to get right with God.

 

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life"

What God can love us so much, and care for us so much that He would send His own son to be sacrificed in our place? What God demonstrates His Holy and Righteous mighty power by loving us with His never ending love, mercy, and grace? God says, come as you are and I will take your burdens and wash you clean forever!

 

Romans:10:9

If you will confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
