Who is Jesus?
Jesus Christ has transformed countless lives. He’s the most talked about person in history. But who is He?
THE MAN FROM ETERNITY
Jesus is the Son of the Living God (Matthew 16:16). He came to earth about 2,000 years ago as a man, yet at the same time He was fully God. He was born supernaturally to a virgin called Mary (Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:27), and He travelled all over Israel in the power of the Holy Spirit, (Luke 4:14) preaching about God’s kingdom (Mark 1:14-15). He performed many extraordinary miracles (Acts 2:22) like healing the sick (Luke 4:40) and raising the dead (Matthew 11:5). His life was ended when He was put to death on a cross. Astonishingly, He then rose again from the dead three days later (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
Why does all this matter today? The Bible says that we all have SINS which separate us from God (Romans 3:23). If you have ever lied, stolen something, used God’s name as a curse word, or lusted, you have broken God’s law and that’s called sin (Exodus 20:7, 14-16; Matthew 5:27-28). As a good Judge, God must punish sin. He hates sin because it is totally against His nature (Psalm 5:4). Under God’s law, we all deserve death and eternal separation from Him in Hell because of our sin (Romans 6:23).
But God loved you so much that He sent His Son to be your Saviour so that He could die on a cross as your substitute (John 3:16). Jesus was absolutely without sin (Hebrews 4:15), meaning He could take the place of guilty humankind, endure God’s wrath and satisfy God’s justice (Romans 3:25). Jesus willingly chose to suffer and die in your place (Luke 22:42). As He poured out HIS BLOOD, He took your sin, sickness and shame on Himself (Isaiah 53:4-5).
It didn’t end there! He was in the grave for three days and three nights, but the third day God miraculously raised Him from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). He is now LIVING in Heaven with Father God (Acts 2:33). He promised that He will return to earth to gather those who have put their trust in Him (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) and to judge those who have refused Him (Acts 17:31).
Jesus freely offers forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:14) and a NEW, eternal life (John 3:16) to anyone who will turn away from their sins (Mark 1:15) and place their trust in Him to save them (Romans 10:9-10). This means making Jesus the highest authority in your life and placing your trust in what He has done for you, not trusting in your own efforts (Ephesians 2:8-9). This is the most important decision of your life. The Bible says that now is the time for your salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2). Don’t delay your decision—you may not have tomorrow.

I believe you are Almighty God.
