How to Know Jesus…


You were created to know God and have a personal relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus; however, in order to know God, you have to know Jesus.  Which means there some things you need to consider about having a relationship with Jesus Christ… and what you need to do to begin your relationship today!

No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall well short of being good enough to satisfy God’s standard of righteousness. That is because we are all sinners. The Bible says, "No one is good—not even one and we’ve all fallen short of God’s glorious standard.” Therefore, we can never be or become righteous through own effort because we’ve already blown it. We need the help of Jesus Christ.
Even though we’ve blown it, there is Good News. God loves us so much, that He sent His only Son to die in our place even though we didn’t deserve it. The Bible tells us that "While we were still sinners Christ died for us."
The Bible says, "Repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away." Repent means to change your mind, change your mind about sin and about not believing in Jesus. When you repent of unbelief, you’re acknowledging sin is bad and that Jesus died on the cross and was raised from death so that you can be forgiven.
Becoming a Christian is not merely reciting some creed, going to church, or doing religious stuff. The Bible says becoming a Christian means to be transformed, “Take off the old and put on the new.” The way you do that is to confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart He rose from the death to save you. This allows Jesus to come into your heart and begin to change you from the inside, and begin to transform you into His image and to live for Him, instead of for the old selfish and sinful man or woman you used to be.
