Why do I need Jesus?
About 6,000 years ago God created Adam & Eve. At this time there was no evil or sin in the world. However, God told them that they could eat of every tree except not from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They disobeyed and ate it so because of their disobedience sin entered the world separating them and all of their descendants (which includes us) from God. This information may be found by reading Genesis Chapters 1-4 from The Holy Bible.
The only way to make atonement for sin back then was through animal sacrifices. Leviticus 17:11 says “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.” God’s plan to restore His relationship with us was to send a second Adam to remove the sin too completely. The animal sacrifices only “covered” the sin.
“For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.”– Romans 5:19
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.” –Romans 5:8-9
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 3:16 & 17
“Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” –John 3:3
Jesus is the new Adam. All of us were born as descendants of Adam. When we believe in Jesus, we are “reborn” into the family of God and restored by God to have a vibrant personal relationship with Him.
The Bible says in Romans 10:9 “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” It also says, “for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:13
Saved from what you might be asking. Saved from sin, death and God’s wrath at the judgment.
Let’s Call on Jesus Together:
Say this prayer with me:
“Lord Jesus, I repent for everything that I have done wrong. Please forgive me. I believe You died for me, that you were buried and that You rose again on the third day. Thank You for loving me. Today I surrender my life into Your hands and ask You to be the Lord of my life. Baptize me in Your Holy Spirit so I will live a victorious life from this point on. Help me to continue to talk with You, to read my Bible every day, to find a home church and to share You with others. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
