Who is Jesus?Why Do I Need Him?Follow Him.

Jesus told His disciples, “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.” Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. (John 14:1-6, NASB).

Jesus made it clear that knowing Him is the only way to salvation. In the Old Testament, the Psalmist talks about how the Lord created us and knew us before the foundation of the earth. It says, “For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You.” (Psalm 139:13-18, NASB)

It is clear from His Word, that the Lord carefully made us and thinks very highly of us and loves us dearly. He also created us with a will, with an ability to choose to serve and love Him back, or to go our own way and do our own thing. What does life look like when we do not love and serve our Creator, but instead go our own way? Paul gives us a picture of this in Romans, where he says, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them. (Romans 1:18-32, NASB)

In Matthew,  it says that at the end of time, Jesus will return in His glory with all of His angels. He will sit on His throne and separate the people one from another like a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. It says that, “He will put the sheep on His right and the goats on His left.” “Then the King will say to those on His right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world”…..but to those on His left he will say, “Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.”

It is very critical to understand the truth that the Lord loves us and does not wish that we perish. John 3:16-17 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.“ God looks on those that are not following Him and He has love and compassion on them for the pain they are going through as they are living in their sin and error. He spoke through the prophet Isaiah, “Why should you be beaten anymore? Why do you persist in rebellion? Your whole head is injured, your whole heart afflicted. From the sole of your foot to the top of your head there is no soundness — only wounds and welts and open sores, not cleansed or bandaged or soothed with olive oil.” (Isaiah 1:5-6) God desires for us to come to Him, through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ and receive His forgiveness and to receive healing and soundness in heart, mind, body and spirit! Jesus wants us to have the same love in our hearts that the Father God loves His Son with! Jesus prayed, “O righteous Father, although the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me; and I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.” (John 17:25-26)

The Lord is excited about the opportunity to spend eternity with you as His son or daughter! We are also excited about the possibility of being able to spend eternity with you! Please pray this prayer with me and receive Jesus as your Savior and Lord!
