Colossians 2:9

For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form...

FULLY GOD

Jesus is the Son of God. He was there when all of creation was made and he has the full power of God.

John 1:14

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.

FULLY HUMAN

Jesus was miraculously born around 2000 years ago to a virgin called Mary. He is fully human and faced all the temptations we face during his time on Earth, and so understands what we go through. 

Luke 2:52

And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

AMAZING LIFE

While Jesus was alive on Earth he performed amazing miracles and taught counter-cultural ideas such as loving your enemies. 

John 1:29

Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

PERFECT & SINLESS

Despite facing all the temptations of humans Jesus never did anything wrong (that is, he never sinned). He was the perfect sacrifice who stood in our place.

Phil 2:8

He humbled himself by becoming obedient to death... on a cross!

DIED ON THE CROSS

Jesus was beaten, humiliated and nailed to a cross to die. He did this to take the punishment for sin that we deserve and to save us from the curse of sin: death. Jesus did this to gives us eternal life!

Acts 2:24

But God raised him from the dead...

RESURRECTION

After three days Jesus rose from the dead, proving that death had no power over him and that it had been conquered.

John 14:16-17

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you... the Spirit of truth.

LIVES IN US

Jesus has given all who believe in Him the Holy Spirit, who helps us to become more like Jesus every day. 

Jesus is more than just an historical figure, a compelling teacher and a good man. He is the Son of God who died and was raised to life to free us from our sin.

John 3:16
For God so love the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

 

If we are honest with ourselves, we know we aren’t perfect. We do things we know we shouldn’t do, and we don’t do things we know we should. This is called sin and it hurts God. The Bible says that God takes sin so seriously that it can’t go unpunished.

 

In going to the cross, Jesus took the punishment for sin we deserved and put it on himself. Because of this God offers new life and a clean slate to those who admit their sin ask for his forgiveness.

 

This is the only way for the problem of sin to be dealt with. Jesus did this because of his incredible love for us, at great personal cost. Instead of punishment, we get to enjoy relationship with God.

Romans 10:9,13
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 save

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
 

Following Jesus begins with acknowledging your sin, turning to God, and trusting in Jesus’ death and resurrection for your forgiveness.

 

If you are ready to do that then you can turn to God in prayer, maybe saying something like this:

 

Dear God,

 

I am sorry for the ways that I have hurt you and hurt other people. I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness.  I believe that Jesus died to pay for my sins and rose again to life, so that I can know You and have eternal life. I accept Jesus today as my Saviour and ask that you make me more like Him every day. 

 

Amen

 

Congratulations! To pray these words with a surrendered heart is the beginning of the most important journey you will ever begin – your journey as a follower of Jesus!

Salvation means to be saved from the consequences of sin. When Jesus sacrificed his life to pay for our sins, he gave us the gift of eternal life. If you accept Jesus as your Lord, you will be SAVED; forgiven from your sins and given the gift of eternal life.

 

Check out: Romans 6:23 & John 3:15

Anyone can be saved! Jesus isn’t exclusive, his offer of life is open to anyone who asks for it.

 

Check out: Romans 3:22

Jesus called people to "count the cost" if they were going to follow Him. Sometimes it almost seems like He is trying to convince people not to follow Him! To follow Jesus will require giving up things that are sinful. Jesus wants us to know this before we commit to following Him. God gives His Spirit to us who begins a lifelong process of making us more like Christ. That will require some change and sacrifice... but it's worth it to get Jesus!

 

Jesus gives every believer the Holy Spirit as a sign that we are saved, and this is something He’s promised us. The Holy Spirit gives us a desire to live for God as well as the ability to hear, recognise and respond to God’s voice.

 

Check out: Ephesians 1:13-14

Once you’re saved, that’s it! Nothing and no one can ever take you away from God. That being said, there are numerous warnings in scripture about falling away that God gives us as a means of keeping us on the path of grace.
