The questions we like to ask about God are numerous: "Is God real?" "Does God care about my situation?" and "Is what we know about Him really true?", just to list a few. The Bible may not answer every question about God, but one thing is for certain God has revealed himself through His son, Jesus.
Jesus tells one of his disciples, Philip, "...he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;..." (John 14:9). That is a pretty remarkable statement! Jesus is literally saying he is God! C.S Lewis, a well-known Christian author wrote of Jesus, “Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
Jesus is God and he left a perfect heaven to enter an imperfect world so that he could save sinners like us! That's why the name of Jesus is above all other names. He is King, Lord, Savior, and Friend. He is "Emmanuel", God with us.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
JESUS IS GOD AND HUMAN
Jesus is God but in human form. He walked on this earth just like we do. See John 1:1, 5:17-18, and Philippians 2:5-11. The eternal Son of God, Jesus, already existed in heaven before coming to earth (see John 17:5), but then was born to a virgin through the power of the Holy Spirit (see Matthew 1:20).
JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.
Here’s the bad news, we have all sinned (Romans 3:23), but this is why Jesus came. To pay the penalty for our sin, so we don’t have to. It was through His death on the cross that Jesus satisfied sin’s payment so those who accept Him as their Savior can experience forgiveness and eternal life.
JESUS CHANGES LIVES.
People who followed Jesus turned away from their old life of sin and turned to God. Jesus delivered people from demon oppression like Mary Magdalene (Luke 8:2). He called people like Matthew, who was a despised tax collector (Matthew 9:9). He called ordinary people like a fisherman named Peter (Matthew 4:18). For nearly 2,000 years, Jesus Christ has been changing the lives of people all over the world. He can do this for you too!
JESUS LIVES IN HEAVEN AT GOD THE FATHER'S RIGHT HAND.
After Jesus rose from the dead, He went to heaven to the place where he was with the Father prior to coming to earth. From there he is able to hear our prayers (Romans 8:34).
JESUS CHRIST WILL RECEIVE YOU IF YOU COME TO HIM.
Jesus said, He would not turn anyone away who wants to come to Him (John 6:37). He’s ready to start a personal relationship with you. Your past is never too bad for Jesus to save you. It’s time to come to Him and receive His free gift of salvation.
