We need a personal relationship with Jesus

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, August 25, 2021

Many people believe in God and that after death there is a Heaven and a Hell, but are confused about what they have to do to go to Heaven. It’s not about what they do; it’s all about what Jesus did on the Cross. In John 3: 3, Jesus says,“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Several years ago, I read the following in a daily devotional “The Word for You Today”:

 

THREE REASONS WHY YOU NEED JESUS

 

Jesus loves you! He desires to have a relationship with you, and to give you a life full of joy and purpose. Why do you need Him in your life?

 

BECAUSE YOU HAVE A PAST —

You can’t go back, but He can.  The Bible says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).  He can walk into those places of sin and failure, wipe the slate clean and give you a new beginning.

 

BECAUSE YOU NEED A FRIEND —

Jesus knows the worst about you, yet He believes the best. Why? Because He sees you not as you are but as you will be when He gets through with you. What a friend!

 

BECAUSE HE HOLDS THE FUTURE —

Who else are you going to trust?  In His hands you are safe and secure – today, tomorrow and for all eternity.  His Word says, “For I know the plans I have for you…plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  In those days when you pray, I will listen” (Jeremiah 29: 11-12).

If you would like to be born again and begin a personal relationship with Jesus today, please pray the following prayer:

Lord Jesus, I invite You into my life. I believe You died for me and that Your blood pays for my sins and provides me with the gift of eternal life. By faith I receive that gift, and I acknowledge You as my Lord and Savior. Amen.
