WHO IS JESUS?
“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.” (John 3:16)
Do you have questions? Are you wondering if this is all true, and who Jesus is? This is probably the most important question you can ask yourself.
God is not interested in religion. God is a God of relationship, and what he wants more than anything is a relationship with you! When he created humans, he created them with free will. Man made the choice to live without God, and sin entered the world. Since sin cannot coexist with the holiness of God, humanity has found itself separated from its creator.
But God, in his love, had a plan of salvation, a way of reconnecting us with him. And that way was his Son, Jesus. Jesus came to earth as a human. He chose to give his life for us, crucified on a cross. What an incredible proof of love. By dying, Jesus paid for the sins of the whole world.
When we accept Jesus into our lives, we are instantly forgiven for our past mistakes, accepted into his family and guaranteed to spend eternity with God.
Accepting Jesus into your life is a very simple thing to do. The Bible says it is enough to believe, confess - say in words - that Jesus is our Saviour and tell him that we need him. We can be reconnected to God through a simple, sincere prayer.
If you want to do this today, you can speak to God and say a prayer like this:
Thank you, God, because you loved me first.
Thank you, Jesus, for dying on the cross for me.
Thank you that I can connect with you now, because you are alive today.
I recognise that I have lived my life without you and that I have made mistakes.
I ask you to forgive me and I surrender to you.
I want to live with you and for you.
I invite you into my heart by faith now.
Thank you that your Spirit comes to dwell in me.
In the name of Jesus, Amen.
AND AFTER THAT?

Life is an extraordinary gift that God has given us. Connected to him, we can live in freedom and joy. Know that he is with you every day and that he will never abandon you!
