How Can I Get To Know Jesus?
GOD’S LOVE for us is so great that He wants us to get to know Him. We can always count on His love because God is love.
“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love” 1 John 4:16
OUR SIN is what separates us from God. We sin anytime we fall short of God’s plan for us, which means we carry sin every day. Our sin separates us from God not only in this life, but also when we die. Without God’s plan to rescue us, none of us would have any hope of feeling His love and His relief from our pain right now or once we die.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23
GOD’S PLAN of salvation is the cross of Jesus Christ. God sent His Son, Jesus, to die in our place so that we could be rescued from our sins, experience true life right now on Earth and live with Him in heaven once we die. Jesus is the only way to be saved from the sin that separates us from God. Jesus said,
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” John 14:6
OUR CHOICE is to accept God’s plan is all we need to do to receive the gift of salvation that rescues us from our sins. God offers this salvation, but He never forces us to accept Him; it’s our choice either to ask God’s Son to take over our life or to reject Him.
“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” John 3:16
Would you like to make the choice to ask Jesus to take over your life right now?
Jesus loves you so much that you can get to know Him by praying and asking Him to take over your life. You can use your own words or follow this prayer:
“Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God and that You died on the cross for my sins. Forgive me of my sins and be the Lord of my life. Thank You for dying for me and making it possible for me to live with You in heaven forever. Amen.”
