How can I have a relationship with Jesus?

You can know God personally.

The Creator of the universe made you and wants an intimate relationship with you.

But how?

God made the world and He created humanity. There was no disease, death, shame, or sorrow.

Our wrong (sin) broke our perfect relationship with God and brought death into the world. The judgement by God for our sin is damnation to Hell forever when we die.

We were hopeless.

For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

But God sent His only Son, Jesus, who lived a perfect life and died as a sacrifice for our sins. Jesus rose from the grave to conquer sin, death, and Hell.

JESUS is the gift that offers us forgiveness, a relationship with God, and eternal life with him.

The Bible calls this “Salvation.”

I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

Every religion claims to have a path to God–a way for us to earn his favor.

Jesus says we can’t be good enough. And our only hope is to come to God through him (Jesus).

And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.

We no longer have to fear eternal damnation to Hell!

Eternal life in heaven with God is now available to us, but ONLY through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

How can you begin that relationship?

But everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.

That means everyone–including you.

You can call out to the Lord Jesus in a loud cry, a quiet prayer, or even a faint whisper.

It doesn’t matter where you are or how  you talk to him–he hears you.

Ask him to forgive you.

All you have to do is ask. That’s it.

And you will be saved! Your entire eternity will change in an instant!

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

Jesus will set you free from your past. Free from your sin. Free from your mistakes. He can heal your brokenness. Your emotional hurt. Your troubled mind.

He wants to. He can. He will.

You just have to ask him.

He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.

If you receive Jesus’ gift of eternal life, God now wants you to live for him. You must turn away from everything that God says is wrong.

Again, Jesus says you can’t be good enough. You can’t do this on your own.

But God offers us his Holy Spirit to live in us and change us to be more like Jesus.

Through the Holy Spirit we can live in a relationship with Jesus, seeking to know him more.

What are you waiting for?

Give your life to Jesus! Receive forgiveness from your sins. Invite his Holy Spirit to fill you.

All you have to do is ask. That’s it.

Got Questions?

The Bible is God’s love letter to humanity and His instruction manual for humanity. Between the pages of the Bible you’ll find truth to believe, promises to claim, commands to obey, and examples to follow. The Bible is God’s words written down for us to read. It tells about how Jesus came to earth to save us and records eyewitness accounts of what he said.

First, pray for the Holy Spirit to lead you to the right church. Make sure the church believes and preaches the Bible. They should believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the ultimate standard for truth. Beware of cults–people acting like Christians who really aren’t. They add things to the Bible and twist what the Bible teaches. These include Mormons (Jesus Christ Church of the Latter Day Saints) and Jehovah Witnesses.
