Do you know who Jesus is?
Maybe you've heard the name before, and maybe you know a little about him. Maybe you know a lot about him, but you've never experienced a relationship with him. Wherever you're at, let us tell you a little more about the Person who's at the center of everything we do.
Jesus is God's Son, and 2000 years ago he came to earth to become a living, breathing human, just like us. He was different than us, though — he lived a completely perfect, righteous life.
You and I are not perfect people. We've messed up, and we've broken God's law. God's standard is perfection, and we simply can't live up to it; we've rebelled against him and the debt stacked against our name is beyond our ability to pay.
That's where Jesus comes in. Jesus lived the perfect life we can't live, and he died the death we deserve to pay the debt for our wrongs that we owed. Why? It's simple, and yet one of the most profound truths in the universe: because he loves us. God loves us. He wants to have a relationship with us, so he came to earth to pay the price on our behalf.
But that's not where the story ends. When we celebrate Easter, we celebrate the fact that Jesus actually rose from the grave. Death could not hold him, and now, it can't hold us. Because Jesus died and rose again, conquering death and sin, we can have eternal life in him.
Jesus wants to rescue you from sin and death. He promises new life, a fuller life, in himself. Scripture says that when we openly declare that Jesus is Lord, and believe in our hearts that God raised him from the dead, we will be saved (Romans 10:9).
Will you come to Jesus today, confessing that you need his forgiveness? It doesn't need to be a fancy prayer, and you don't have to do or say anything special; God is listening, and he wants to hear your heart. Trust in Jesus' death as the payment for your sins and receive new life in him.
