I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well.
Jesus said He knew God. Many people say the same thing today. Jesus also said He was God. This claim confused and infuriated the religious leaders of His day. Likewise, this claim can be confusing to many of us. Why does Jesus, a man from 2,000 years ago, have anything to do with our daily lives? If Jesus is God, then we have every reason to want to know Him. The best part is, Jesus invites us into a relationship with him. He is alive and he is relevant in every part of our lives.
The Bible tells us that God has a purpose for each one of us. We get the opportunity to live life with God because he loved us enough to send Jesus. It can be incredibly difficult for us to fathom such amazing love. Our experiences have often taught us that love is conditional, scary, or even not real. Anyone who has accepted Jesus into their heart can tell you from experience that God’s love is greater and deeper and wider than anything imaginable. The good news is, you don’t have to be perfect or do all the right things to achieve His love. You just have to take a few simple steps.
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.
You don't have to be perfect. Jesus died on a cross in order to wipe you clean of all your wrong-doings and brokenness and in exchange gave you access to a relationship with God. If you believe that truth, your life will never be the same. All you need to do is simply repent of your sin, declare you want to follow Jesus, and believe He is who He says He is. Belief in Jesus is the first step to the rest of your journey with our incredible God.
