Do You Know Jesus?

Believe that God loves you – “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

Commit your life to Him – We must do more than believe – we must commit ourselves to Him. Jesus said, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

Understand that sin separates us from God ; and that separation results in death – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

“For the wages of sin is death, “ (Romans 6:23)

Jesus died for us – “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

Receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior – “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.” (John 1:12)

Receiving Jesus involves repentance (turning to God) and trusting Christ to come into your life to forgive your sins and to make you the person He wants you to be. You are a new creation! “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
