How to know Jesus

Do you have any idea how much God loves you?
He does…wholly and completely. He delights in you and wants to have a relationship with you. He offers you abundant and eternal life.

For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs. Zephaniah 3:17

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. John 10:10

Sin separates you from that relationship with Him.

For everyone has sinned: we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Romans 3:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

Jesus Christ died and rose again. He was the sacrifice for our sins and through him we are reconciled with God.

Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit. 1 Peter 3:18

For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man, Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 2:5

Admit your need for forgiveness. Turn away from your sin and believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8

Pray to receive Him as your Savior.

Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross for me. I am a sinner in need of your grace. I confess my need for you. Forgive me and be my Savior. Make me a new creation.

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 saved. Romans 10:9

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12

God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Ephesians 2:8
