Who is Jesus?

My beloved friend what first comes to your mind when you hear the name Jesus? Perhaps a church steeple or a cross or maybe even angry profanity. But who is Jesus really? Most of us recognize that there is something special about the man Jesus, whose birth many celebrate every Christmas and is debated for long years. Some see him as a great teacher, or a prophet, or religious leader or the greatest man who ever lived. But he is much more than that. Here's how God's special book to mankind, the Bible, describes him... (John 1:1-2) "In the beginning was the Word [Jesus], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. There is only one God for all mankind (His name is Jesus which means "God is salvation") who manifested in flesh to die for our sins.

God’s Mystery and Historical fact?

It is a historical fact and God’s Wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and was revealed to us by his spirit that God manifested in flesh 2000 years ago which none of the rulers of this world has known. Jesus was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him" (John 1:10).

My friend He is the Creator "For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth...all things were created through him and for him"

(Colossians 1:16). We all are living in 21st century where technologies and scientific inventions are controlling this world but please understand God created everything for us and mankind doesn’t have any creation power. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

Why do I need Jesus?

You need Jesus because you need God’s salvation. You see, you aren’t here by accident; God created you, and He put you here for a reason. The problem is that we have ignored God and gone our own way, and as a result we are separated from Him—both now and in eternity. The Bible calls this “sin”—and our greatest need is to have our sins forgiven and cleansed. But how can this happen? Only God can forgive us—and He made this possible by coming down into the world for us. By His death on the cross Jesus took upon Himself the judgment that you and I deserve."The result of sin is death and spiritual separation from God which is eternal punishment... but God’s gift is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord"

(Romans 6:23).

Only Jesus can make possible forgiveness of our sins and acceptance by the God whom we have offended and disobeyed. He did this by dying on the cross for us taking the punishment we deserve as sinners. Jesus died in our place, so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever. God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still lives! “Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). “Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6).

Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness? Will you ignore him?

My Friend you need to understand that religion has nothing do with God. We can’t earn salvation by any good deeds; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, that Christ died for your sins,

and ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty. We suggest praying the prayer below to accept Christ as your Savior.

Prayer: "Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
