Now that we have an understanding of who God is, why Jesus came on earth and who God’s children are. So now let’s learn about why we should come to Jesus. If you missed those blog posts, you can find ‘who God is?’ Here, ‘why did Jesus come on earth?’ Here and ‘who God’s children are?’ Here. Now let’s learn about why Jesus is the ONLY safe guaranteed option we have.
Just to remind ourselves of why Jesus came on earth. Let’s look in the book called “Bible”, in the book of John chapter 3 verse 16 from the NIV translation, it states; “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” That scripture states that God’s love for us is the reason why Jesus came to save us. And God’s love for us is the number one reason why we should come to Jesus.
Let’s look at some more scriptures from the book called “Bible” that explains why we should come to Jesus.
John 3:17 “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.” NIV
2 Corinthians 5:21 “God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” NIV
1 Peter 2:24 “He Himself bore our sins” in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by His wounds you have been healed.” NIV
Ephesians 1:7 “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.” NIV
These scriptures give us concrete and compelling reasons why we should come to Jesus. When we come to Jesus, we’ll be saved from all the wicked of the world. In Jesus, we’ll be justifiable in God’s eyes. We’ll be free from all sins and we’ll be healed from all sicknesses. In Jesus, we’ll also get forgiveness for all of our sins through God’s grace.
So brothers and sisters, let’s come to Jesus TODAY, let’s not waste any second. Some of us have tried every option this world offers but every option will fail. Let’s try Jesus this time around. Let’s believe in Him and in His word. Let’s surrender our lives over to Him. I promise you He won’t fail you, and I know this from personal experience.
