Know Jesus?

Many people know about Jesus. Some think He is only a prophet or just another good man. But, Jesus (Yeshua) is the Son of the only true God. The only way to go to heaven is if Jesus knows you! There is no way to be saved other than through Jesus Christ.

For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him (John 5:22-23, New King James Version).”

STEP 1 – God loves you and has a plan for you!

The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ],
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly”—a complete life full of
purpose (John 10:10).

But here’s the problem:

STEP 2 – Man is sinful and separated from God.

We have all done, thought or said bad things, which the Bible calls “sin.” The Bible says,
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

The result of sin is death, spiritual separation from God (Romans 6:23).

The good news?

STEP 3 – God sent His Son to die for your sins!

Jesus died in our place so we could live with Him in heaven for eternity.

“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for
us” (Romans 5:8). But it didn’t end with His death on the cross. He rose again and still
lives!

“Christ died for our sins. … He was buried. … He was raised on the third day, according to
the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

Jesus is the only way to God.

Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but
through Me” (John 14:6).

STEP 4 – Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?

We can’t earn salvation; we are saved by God’s grace when we have faith in His Son, Jesus
Christ. All you have to do is believe you are a sinner, believe that Christ died for your sins, and
ask His forgiveness. Then turn from your sins—that’s called repentance. Jesus Christ knows you and loves you. What matters to Him is the attitude of your heart, your honesty.

NOTE: You must be sincere. God knows if you do not mean what you say.

STEP 5 – Pray the following prayer to accept Christ as your Savior:

Dear God, I’m a sinner. I’m sorry for my sins. I want to turn from my sins. I believe Jesus
Christ is your Son. I believe He died for my sin and that You raised Him to life. I want to
trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Jesus, I put my trust in
You and I surrender my life to You. Please come into my life and fill me with Your Holy
Spirit. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
