Does Jesus matter?
No matter where you are in life, all of us struggle to find purpose, answers, and hope. Some days we just want to keep our heads above water – take care of our family, pay bills on time, and find some kind of work/life balance that keeps us healthy. But we also have deeper questions. Why am I here? What is the purpose of it all? Jesus matters because He came to answer all those deep questions we ask ourselves. He came to give us purpose in living our day-to-day lives and settles where we’ll spend eternity.
Jesus brings meaning to life.
You don’t have to meet some impossible criteria or standard to know God – Jesus did that for you. God created you because he has a plan and purpose for your life. He is the only person capable of loving you unconditionally, knowing every need and hurt you have. We are all imperfect and without Jesus, we will not survive the pressures, expectations, and disappointments of this worldly standard. Jesus brings meaning and purpose to our lives so we can face each day knowing he will help us. Don’t believe the lie that you aren’t good enough, you need to clean up and change, or need to be perfect, to love Jesus. He already loves you.
"If you declare with your mouth, ‘“Jesus is Lord,’” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”
If you are ready to accept Christ, pray this prayer out loud...
"Dear Lord Jesus, I admit that I’ve fallen short. I’ve sinned and need your forgiveness. I believe that You lived, died and rose again so that I could be connected to God. I confess you as my Lord and commit my life to You. I give you my past, present and future. Take my life and use it. I give it to You. Amen.”
If you accepted Jesus, congratulations! All of Heaven rejoices. Please let us know so we can be part of your new journey with Christ.
