Why Jesus?

This is one of the most important questions anyone can ever ask. It can change EVERYTHING in your life in a way you have probably never imagined. Millions of people can testify to this truth. Consider this question. Who is Jesus and why do I need him?


Matt 7

Forget for the moment everything you may ever have heard about Jesus. Forget about Him being the Son of God. Forget about Him being your savior and dying for your sins. Forget about Him offering you salvation and eternal life in His Kingdom. Forget about Him healing you from your diseases. Forget about Him offering you an abundant, happy life, free from worry. For the moment forget all of this.

The most basic question for most people is this? Who is Jesus and why do I need Him? Well, for that answer we have to turn to the only authoritative source in the world, the Holy Bible. The Scriptures tell us a lot about Jesus, who He is to us, and His plans for us for eternity. Please take a moment to view this inspiring video, a powerful sermon preached by Rev. SM Lockeridge, who used to pastor in a church in the San Diego area some years ago. You will see and hear a 6 minute condensed version of what Jesus is, as taken from the Scriptures.

Jesus is all of this and more! Many people believe this to be true. Others don't believe. Maybe you are one of them. If this is true then you have some important questions to consider. A lot of people don't believe in, or cannot relate to Jesus. They really don't know a thing about God. They don't recognize Jesus as a literal King. If what you believe isn't true, would you want to know it? If knowing Jesus can make a positive difference in your life would you want to find out how? Who is Jesus and why can he make a difference in my life?

There are many reasons people don't know about Jesus and His soon coming Kingdom on a new, perfect earth. There are many negative distractions in our lives. Maybe your life is so full of worry, pain, suffering, and troubles right now that you don't know which way to turn. Maybe you are filled with loneliness, doubt, or anxiety, or tormented with some illness or disease. Maybe you are looking for answers to various life problems and just can't find the answers. Maybe you are just someone who has never even heard about the Son of god until today.

Why Jesus? Well, let's consider in this article who He is on the most basic level first. If you want to know how He can make a difference in your life, start here and then follow the link at the end to find out exactly how He can save you and give you life all eternity in His paradise Kingdom.

What is one thing that everyone can relate to no matter who you are, or what culture you live in, or what your current state of life is? Regardless of the trials, difficulties, and troubles you may now be experiencing, regardless of the doubt and anxiety, regardless of the loneliness, pain, and suffering, everyone understands and appreciates the value of friendship.

Almost everyone has had a best friend sometime in their life. The nice thing about them is that they care about you unconditionally. Yet as good as your previous friendships have been, they were not perfect. This one is different! You may not know it now, but the best friend you have ever had is already a part of your life!



Who is Jesus? He is your Friend, your Savior, your Comforter, your King, and your Provider! He will not demand anything from you in exchange for his love. It's unconditional! All you have to do is believe in Him and accept His Grace and Mercy to cover all of your sins. Baptism and everything else just naturally follow. You don't have to do anything special to communicate with him. There are no prescribed prayers or rituals that you have to go through to talk with him. He is your access to God the Father 24 hours a day. You will have his undivided attention at all times. No matter what you have to tell him, no matter how bad it might be, He will listen patiently to all that is in your heart and petition His Father on your behalf. He will comfort you in your time of need. He will give you peace in times of trial. He will fill your heart when you are sad. He will forgive anything that you have done. He will heal your spirit when you are troubled. He will love you unconditionally!

You don't have to go through life feeling empty. You don't have to constantly worry about everything. You don't have to be unhappy. You don't have to be alone. You don't have to feel unloved. You now have someone who cares about you more than you could ever imagine. The best part comes at the end of your physical life! If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior He will welcome you into the Kingdom of God when He returns to earth. You will live there forever with God in a perfect paradise.

Remember what was said in the first paragraph about forgetting all those things that Christians believe about Jesus Christ? By themselves they don't mean much to most people, however, in the context of the most perfect friendship you will ever have they suddenly take on new meaning.

So why Jesus? Imagine a friend who is willing to die for you so that you might live forever in a perfect Kingdom paradise. Imagine someone who is willing to give you eternal life, just because he loves you. Why Jesus? Imagine a brother who can heal a disease you have, and who will carry all your worries and your fears for you. Why Jesus? Imagine someone who just happens to have the God of the whole universe as his Father, who can petition this all-powerful being on your behalf anytime you ask. Well, you don't have to imagine it any longer. You have all of this right now!

"...there is a friend who sticks closers than a brother."

(Proverbs 18:24)
Please take a moment to watch this video before you continue.




You don't have to wait for Jesus to do many of these things for you because He already has. He has already died for you. He is now your King and Savior! He has already offered you salvation. He has already offered you eternal life in His Kingdom. He is ready and willing to do even more for you, if you will let Him. He wants to carry your burdens. He wants you to give him your worries and your fears. He wants to give you an abundant, happy life. You only have to do one thing. You have to be willing to believe in Him and accept Him and all that He offers you. His gifts are all free. His forgiveness of your sins is free, but you have to be willing to accept them.

So why Jesus? You did not come to this web page by accident. God loves YOU, and He wants you to have a personal relationship with Him. He wants you to live forever with Him in the Kingdom of God. He brought you here! The problem is that most people have never even really thought about God, His Kingdom, or His wonderful gifts. A false gospel has been preached about Jesus and going to heaven that has taken the focus off the King and His Kingdom here on earth. People are so busy with their everyday activities that they don't even think about the most basic spiritual matters of life, much less think about what will happen to them after they die. How about you?

Do you have any kind of spiritual belief?
Do you think there is an after-life?
If you died right now do you know where would you go?
If what you believe were not true, would you want to know it?
