Jesus loves you! He desires to have a relationship with you, and to give you a life full of joy and purpose. Why do you need Him in your life?
1. God Loves You.
God loves you and wants you to know Him so He can fill you with peace and give you real life — forever. “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 (John 3:16).” Jesus said, “I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest.”
Since God planned for us to have peace and life, why are we so far from God?
2. We are Separated from God.
Since the beginning of time, we have chosen to disobey God and go our own way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God.
“All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s holiness.” Sin is choosing to say or do or think things that are against God’s plan. “The result of unforgiven sin is death. But God’s gift is eternal life given by Jesus Christ our Lord.”
3. We have a past.
You cannot go back, but He can. The bible says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8). He can walk into those places of sin and failure, wipe the slate clean and give you a new beginning.
4. Jesus Christ Died for our Sins
Jesus Christ is God’s Son. He is the only One who can bring us back to God. Jesus died on the Cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people.
“There is only one God, and Christ Jesus is the only One who can bring us to God.” “Christ died once for our sins. An innocent person died for those who are guilty. Christ did this to bring you to God.”
5. Because you need a friend
Jesus knows the worst about you, yet he believes the best. Why? Because He see you not as you are, but as you will be when He gets through with you. What a friend!
6. Because He holds the future.
Who else are you going to trust? In His hands you are safe and secure today, tomorrow and for eternity. His word says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
You must trust Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and receive Him as our Saviour and serve Him as our Lord. “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even those who believed on His name.”
