Do You Know Jesus?

Do You Know Jesus?

 How do you know Jesus?  Do you know him as a christian God? Do you know him as the reason for Christmas or Easter? Many people know him, but how many of them truly understand who He is? 

Do you know him as your friend, your Father, most important as your saviour? 

 Bible says that God created man in His own image to relect who He is and to have an intimate relationship with Him.(Genesis 1:27) When sin entered man, he decided to live a life far from God and forgot the reason why he was made for. “But God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.”(John 3:16).

We are all sinners.”For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”(Romans 3:23). We are saved by His grace and not by our good works. Bible says “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Do you want to experience Jesus in your everyday life as your personal saviour….

This is what you must do

1. Examine your life and confess all your sins.

      “If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 1:10)

 
      “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men,for that all have sinned:” (Romans 5:12)

2.Repent and ask God to forgive all your sins.

       From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” (Mathew 4:17)

       “I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over          ninety-nine righteous persons who do not  need to repent. ” (Luke 15:7)

       “In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent “(Acts 17:30)

3. Beleive and confess with your mouth that Jesus died for you and rose from the dead.


       “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John3:16)

       “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

4.Invite Jesus into your heart to be your personal saviour

       “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be  saved.” (Romans 10:9)

       “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:10)
 
       “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)

5.Beleive that you are a new creation and turn away from sinful life.

“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” (John 1:12)

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

   
     The day you accepted Jesus as your personal saviour,you are born again.Just like a newborn, you need to grow in Him by talking to Jesus everyday and reading His word from the Bible.Let Him to be your master and ask him to guide you through your everyday life.Obey His commandments and worship Him.Be part of a church where Bible is the final authority.As you grow in Him, He’ll guide you to heights that you have never imagined.Talk about this Jesus to manyothers and serve others.

May God Bless you in your new journey

  1. The article on the learning to fly like an eagle was excellent. Possibly it would be more encouraging if the author could also look at the parts of an eagle eg. Why does an eagle make its nest at very high point? To what can the eyes of an eagle be compared? What of the placking off of it wings in order to renew its strengthen signifies. I think these could be very helpful to understand why our God picked an eagle to illustrate His Love and care.

    Thanks God Bless you.
