The Life of JesusJune 11, 2012
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:16-17
Jesus is the real deal. He is not like anybody else. You can bet your whole life on His faithfulness. You may be battling cynicism and doubt, but God wants to reveal himself to you. Just ask Him to show you He is real, and He will.
Jesus loves you. Whether you are a prominent leader like Jairus in the Bible, who asked for healing for his 12-year-old daughter, or a “nobody” like the woman with the issue of blood, Jesus wants to come into your life and turn around your situation.
Jesus gives life. The same Jesus who raised Lazarus from the dead is available to breathe life on your situation. Whatever your problem, Jesus is the answer. When Jesus died on the Cross and then rose from the dead, He forever changed the course of humanity. He can heal your body, rescue you from depression, restore your marriage, heal a dysfunctional family, reach your rebellious child—He’ll save your life if you’ll let Him. Trust Him. His promises are sure.
Receive Jesus. If you’ve never asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, pray this simple prayer: “Dear God, in my heart I know the truth about Jesus. I know He is Your Son and that He died for me and rose from the dead. Forgive me for all my sins. I receive Jesus into my life right now. Help me to follow You always. Amen.”
God bless you!
