4 Reasons why you need Jesus


God Loves Me

God is crazy about you! His love for you is unlimited and completely unconditional. There is nothing you can do to make God love you more or less than He does right now. There is nothing that God wants more than to love and be loved by you. Bible: Psalm 100v5, 1John 3v16


I have sinned

Sadly we have been separated from God’s love by something the Bible calls sin. Simply put sin is when we choose to live for ourselves rather than God. We sin when we ignore God, break His laws and basically do things our own way. Sin destroys relationships with friends, with family and with God. The Bible says that sin ultimately brings death. Bible: Isaiah 59v2, James1v15


Jesus died for me

The third point is probably one of the most well know facts in the history of mankind but is often misunderstood. The key is to realise that the penalty for sin is death. We’ve all sinned and we all deserve to die. But God, who is full of mercy, loved you so much that He sent Jesus to come and die in your place. Jesus died, so that we can have eternal life. Bible: Romans 6v23, Romans 5v8


I need to decide to live for God

Not only did Jesus die for our sin, three days later He rose from the dead! Through His death and resurrection, Jesus has now made a way for us to have a relationship with God. All you have to do is accept you’ve sinned, ask for God’s forgiveness and then decide to live the rest of your life only for Him. The choice is yours. Bible: John 14v6, 1John 1v9

A prayer you can say…

Dear God, thank you for loving me and that you have a good plan and purpose for my life. I’m sorry for ignoring you and doing things my own way. I realise now that my sin has hurt you and the people around me, and for this I’m truly sorry. Thank you Jesus that you gave you life for me and took the punishment for my sin. Please forgive me, help me now, by the power of your Holy Spirit, as I decide to live only for you. Amen.

If you have prayed this prayer, meaning it sincerely, then God has saved you from your sins (Romans 10:9), and He has made you a new person in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).

If you do not belong to a local church, you should look for one with Christians you can trust, who loves Jesus and will pray and study the Bible with you.

Whether or not you already belong to a church, it is important that you get your own Bible, one that is written in words you can easily understand.
