Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior?
Many people will acknowledge Jesus Christ as a good man, a great teacher, or even a prophet of God.
These things are definitely true of Jesus, but they do not fully define who He truly is.
The Bible tells us that Jesus is God in the flesh, God in human form (see John 1:1, 14).
God came to earth to teach us, heal us, correct us, forgive us—and die for us!
Jesus Christ is God, the Creator, the sovereign Lord.
The Bible tells us that we have all sinned; we have all committed evil acts ( Romans 3:10-18).
As a result of our sin, we deserve God’s anger and judgment.
The only just punishment for sins committed against an infinite and eternal God is an infinite punishment ( Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:11-15).
Jesus Christ came to earth and died in our place.
Jesus’ death was an infinite payment for our sins ( 2 Corinthians 5:21).
Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins ( Romans 5:8).
Jesus’ resurrection from the dead proved that His death was sufficient to pay the penalty for our sins.
That is why Jesus is the one and only Savior ( John 14:6; Acts 4:12)!
Is Jesus your “personal” Savior?
Many people view Christianity as attending church, performing rituals, and/or not committing certain sins.
That is not Christianity.
True Christianity is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Accepting Jesus as your personal Savior means placing your own personal faith and trust in Him.
No one is forgiven by doing certain deeds.
The only way to be saved is to personally accept Jesus as your Savior, trusting in His death as the payment for your sins and His resurrection as your guarantee of eternal life ( John 3:16).
If you want to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, say the following words to God.
