Who Is Jesus?

Jesus is the Son of God, a man who left his throne in heaven to live among us here on Earth. He lived on Earth some two thousand years ago, entirely man and entirely God.

Jesus lived a sinless, perfect life and came with a purpose – to offer himself as a sacrifice. Our sin separates us from God so Jesus died on a cross taking the weight of the world’s sins upon himself. That way the punishment for sin could be satisfied – once and for all. It is now because of that cross that we can have relationship with God! Three days after his death, Jesus was resurrected, eternally conquering the power of death and raising us up with himself. When Jesus suffered the punishment for our sins a perfect exchange was made. ‘And now there is nothing between you and Father God, for he sees you as holy, flawless and restored.’ (Colossians 1:22 TPT)

God sent his son so that we may have abundant and everlasting life. What does that look like for us here and now? It looks like The Greatest Love To Ever Exist wants to be in a relationship with you. Jesus loves you. He is the one in which hope is found; he is our redemption. 

Jesus is God with us, Emmanuel. He is waiting for us to turn to him so he can wash away our sin and we can be made new. Our God, The Creator of the Mountains, Maker of the Seas, this is His son – he is kind, gracious, loving in nature and the best friend you could ever have. This is Jesus!

For this is how much God loved the world—he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life.

JOHN 3:16 (TPT)

New Life

We can experience new life through the gift of salvation. Salvation is the deliverance from sin and its consequences – something our good works and striving cannot earn. Naturally we wonder how can this be? We fear that maybe we are too corrupt, too unlovable, our pasts are too heavy for this gift to be our own, to be for us. But this is the good news! Jesus came to save you! You can never be too far gone as to disqualify yourself from the love of God and His gift of salvation to you!

It is written in the Bible that when we publicly declare with our mouths that Jesus is Lord and believe in our hearts that God raised him from the dead, we will experience salvation. (Romans 10:9-10) This declaration is known as a salvation prayer. The purpose of this prayer is to invite Jesus into your heart, to begin a relationship with him and welcome his love in your life. The old will be gone, and you will be made brand new! (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Invite Jesus into your life

“Dear Jesus,
I thank you that I can come to you. I thank you that it is you who lifts my head because you are madly and passionately in love with me. I come to you right now, as a sinner asking for forgiveness. Asking for you to come into my life. Right now Lord, I give my life to you. I declare that you are Lord and my Saviour both now and forevermore.
In Jesus name, Amen.”
