Who is Jesus?
There are many gods, there is no denying it — the Bible calls them principalities and powers that be. But there is only one God who came to earth as a man to restore us to Himself. Jesus came to earth as a man to restore us to the plans God has for us. Will you follow Him?
Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the Book of Life; and the dead were judged according to what they had done as written in the books [that is, everything done while on earth].
This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.
John 3:16 MSG
How do I follow Him?
I want to give you the opportunity right now, while you are all alone with Jesus, to pray a prayer from your heart:
“Jesus, come into my life. Rule and reign. Take control and cleanse me. Make me like you.
Holy Spirit fill me, fill me up, fill me up, more and more, fill me to overflowing. Teach me and guide me. Fill me with desire to read my Bible. Fill me with desire to know You. Correct me when I am wrong and lead me away from temptations.
Always remind me I am a new creation. I am free of my past, free of the lies. I am now a son/daughter of God. You love me regardless of the past I came from. Heal all the hurt I have caused those closest to me. Heal my heart and fill me with a desire and boldness to tell the people I know what you have done for me. In Jesus name I pray.”
What’s with praying a prayer?
I’m sure you wondering: what’s with the sinner’s prayer? Christians encourage a sinner’s prayer because the Bible says; “If you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart a person believes [in Christ as Savior] resulting in his justification [that is, being made righteous—being freed of the guilt of sin and made acceptable to God]; and with the mouth he acknowledges and confesses [his faith openly], resulting in and confirming [his] salvation.” Romans 10:9-10 (AMP)
Did you catch that? “…and believe in your heart.” Do you believe in your heart that Jesus is the son of God, sent to earth as a man to pay the price we could never pay? He was a holy, pure sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins, so that we can experience the presence of God now in this life. One day when the plans God has for us each on earth are fulfilled, you and I can spend eternity in heaven with God. If you believe that, we call that saving faith, and with it, you are now apart of the family of God.

So, what now? You are going to want to find a church to connect with other Christians, to be encouraged and to grow in your faith in Jesus.
Don’t worry if you are not comfortable the first visit. If it’s your first time in church or it’s been a while, it can often feel very awkward, so pray and ask God to let you know if you’re in the right church or not.
