Everyone has an opinion of who Jesus is, because Jesus is a lot of things to a lot of people., But the answer is found in the eye witness accounts of the Bible. It says that Jesus is the Son of God and that he came to earth on a mission to restore humanity back to God. He lived a perfect life, died on a cross, and came back to life to give humanity new life.
You see no matter who you are there is a deep longing for something more in this life. No matter how successful you are, no matter how far you run, no matter how much you achieve, or no matter how much you cover up, the fact remains, there is a brokenness inside. We long for a perfect life we can't seem to find.
God created and designed humanity in this perfection but each one of us turned from God and in doing this entered into brokenness and severed our relationship with him because of our choices apart from our creator.
But the good news is that no one has a past that is too broken for Jesus!
The reason Jesus came to earth was to take our punishment for our rebellion against God. So when he died on the cross he gave us his perfect standing with God. What an incredible exchange! And the best part is that Jesus comes to offer this new life to you today.
Jesus said, "I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the father except through me." So if you are reading this today and you want the peace and joy that isn't controlled by circumstances but comes from living in this God designed life, you can have it. The bible says that if you turn to God from yourself and trust Jesus to forgive your failings and sin, you will find this new life in Jesus. Because "It is by grace that we are saved through faith." It is your faith in Jesus that brings new life.
So if you want that today you can tell God yourself. God knows your heart so don't worry about getting the words perfect. Here is an example of what that prayer might look like:
God, I want to know you personally. Thank you for dying for me on the cross. I give you control of my life. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal and new life in Jesus. I want to follow you and be the kind of person you want me to be.
If you prayed that prayer, I would love to celebrate with you! Would you fill out the information below so I can celebrate you next step in the beautiful God designed life with Jesus!
