Jesus and You
A SHORT INTRODUCTION TO JESUS CHRIST
WHO IS JESUS, REALLY?
Nearly everyone agrees that Jesus Christ lived on the earth 2,000 years ago. The Bible says that Jesus Christ is God's Son in John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." But, still, many people still have questions about this Man who claimed to be God.
Where did Jesus come from?
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of a virgin. He lived in poverty, and was unknown outside of Nazareth. He had neither wealth nor influence.
He laid aside His purple robe for a peasant's gown. He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor. He slept in another's stable; He rode another's donkey; He was buried in another's grave.
What did Jesus do on earth?
In manhood, He ruled the elements and quieted the raging sea. He healed without medicine, and fed thousands from a boy's lunch. Even demons obeyed Him and He gave back life to those who were dead.
Yet He suffered and sustained in body and soul the anger of God against the sin of the whole human race. He was despised and rejected of men. Though He was innocent, He was condemned by a civil judge and sentenced to death on a cross.
How did Jesus' life impact the world?
Some have given their lives for others, and great men have come and gone, yet Jesus Christ lives on. Herod could not kill Him. Satan could not stop him. Death could not destroy Him. The grave could not hold Him. Having fully satisfied God's perfect justice, He conquered death and rose on the third day as He said He would.
What will you do about Jesus?
Because Jesus Christ suffered and died for your sins and for mine, He now offers each and every one of us a free gift of eternal life. God wants us to accept this free gift, so that when we die, we can leave this earth to go and live in Heaven with Him forever. John 3:17-18 says, "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
