Steps to knowing Jesus

Hey!

If you don’t know Jesus as your personal Lord and savior, but you would like to, you have come to the right place!

The fact is, God exists. So does heaven. So does hell. Jesus came to die for you so that you can live in heaven!

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life

Rejecting Jesus is like saying to God “I hate you, I would rather go to hell then be with you!” And trust me, NOTHING makes him more sad than when you say that.

Why do people go to hell? Well, this is because in the very beginning, right after God created us, the very first humans disobeyed him and sinned. A perfect God and not-so-perfect people cannot exist together, just as light and dark cannot, so we were separated from him. I’m sure you will agree, no one is perfect!

Things seem pretty bad for you and me, eh? Not really. You see, as John 3:16 (see above) says, God so loved the World that he gave his only son! Maybe you quite get that that… The all-powerful God and creator of the world gave his only son in the whole wide universe just to help the totally messed up people known as humans!!! Cool, right?!

So God sent his son to earth, and he was amazing! He was an incredible teacher! He taught right from wrong, and how to truly love each other. He did nothing wrong, but the people were stirred up against him. He was the only perfect person that ever lived, but they killed him! This may seem like God’s plan was kinda maybe RUINED. But no, surprisingly it was his plan all along that Jesus was gonna die.

You see, the only way that we were gonna be made right with God was if there was a sacrifice, and the only sacrifice with enough power to make us right would be the sacrifice of God himself. Thankfully, Jesus was God! So by his death we were made right with him! And not only that, but after three days Jesus came back from the dead! Now we can live with him forever in heaven!

The Bible says that if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is LORD and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. BTW- Saved is a term we Jesus Freaks use for getting to personally know Jesus, and having eternal life. All you have to do is pray this prayer:

God in Heaven, I know I’m a sinner and I need Your help. I believe in my heart that Jesus Christ is Your Son, that He died on the cross for my sins and God raised Him from the dead. Jesus, right now I open my heart and invite You to come in. Make Yourself real to me. Take control of my life. Keep me from evil and make me the person You want me to be. Be my Lord and Savior. AMEN
