My Faith Meets My World: Jesus is Lord

Jesus Came to Save
Along with all the other Christians in the world, I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:16-17. Jesus came into the world to save us - even me! I'm awed by His love for me - the same love He has for you too! "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8. Isn't that awesome to know? God loved us before we even knew Him! It's His love that draws us to Him.

Jesus is the Bridge
Jesus is the bridge connecting us back to God. Our sins have separated us from God, but thankfully, Jesus made a way for us to be connected to God again. "For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that is One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again." 2 Corinthians 5:14-15.

Our Human Need
Why did Jesus come? He came to save sinners - we all are sinners! As Paul said, "This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief." 1 Timothy 1:15.

  • How many have sinned? "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23.
  • What are the consequences? "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23.
  • How did Jesus help us? Surely He has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitted by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to hhis own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:4-6.

The Next Step
So how can a person take advantage of this great salvation offered so freely to us? "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved." Acts 16:38. Sound too simple? It's true! "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9.

Are there any other ways to be saved? "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12.

Would you like to accept Jesus as Your Lord and Savior, too? Tell Him right now, in the quiet of your room in front of your computer, that you want Him in your life. I pray that God will bless you and keep you in His love.
