Gateway To Jesus Ministries Presents
Why Jesus Christ? This is one of the most important questions anyone can ever ask. It can change EVERYTHING in a way you have probably never imagined. Millions of people can testify to this truth. Consider these questions. Who is Jesus and why do I need him? Is He really God who can he save me from Hell and let me live forever?
Forget for the moment everything you may ever have heard about Christ. Forget about Him being the Son of God. Forget about Him being your savior and dying for your sins. Forget about Him offering you salvation and eternity in His Kingdom. Forget about Him healing you from your diseases. Forget about Him offering you an abundant, happy life, free from worry. For the moment forget all of this.
The most basic question for most people is this? Who is Jesus and why do I need Him? Well, for that answer we have to turn to the only authoritative source in the world, the Holy Bible. The Scriptures tell us a lot about our Savior, who He is to us, and His plans for us for eternity.
Many people believe Christ is God and know all of this to be true. Others don't believe. Maybe you are one of them. If this is true then you have some important questions to consider. A lot of people don't believe in, or cannot relate to our Lord. They really don't know a thing about God. They don't recognize Christ as a literal King with the power to save you from Hell to eternal life in God's Kingdom.
If what you believe isn't true, would you want to know it? If knowing your Savior can make a positive difference for you would you want to find out how? Who is Jesus and why can he make a difference in your life? Can He really give YOU eternal life in His Kingdom?
There are many reasons people don't know about Christ and His soon coming Kingdom of Heaven. There are many negative distractions in our lives. Maybe your life is so full of worry, pain, suffering, and troubles right now that you don't know which way to turn. Maybe you are filled with loneliness, doubt, or anxiety, or tormented with some illness or disease. Maybe you are looking for answers to various life problems and just can't find the answers. Maybe you are just someone who has never even heard about the Son of god until today.
Why Jesus? Well, let's consider who He is on the most basic level first. If you want to know how He can make a difference in your life, start here and then follow the link at the end to find out exactly how He can save you for eternity.
What is one thing that everyone can relate to no matter who you are, or what culture you live in? Regardless of the trials, difficulties, and troubles you may now be experiencing, regardless of the doubt and anxiety, regardless of the loneliness, pain, and suffering, everyone understands and appreciates the value of friendship.
Almost everyone has had a best friend sometime in their life. The nice thing about them is that they care about you unconditionally. Yet as good as your previous friendships have been, they were not perfect. This one is different! You may not know it now, but the best friend you have ever had is already a part of your life!
Who is Jesus? He is YOUR Friend, your Savior, your Comforter, your King, your God, and your Provider! He will not demand anything from you in exchange for his love or His gift of eternal life in Heaven. It's unconditional! All you have to do is believe in Him and accept His Grace and Mercy to cover all of your sins. Baptism and everything else just naturally follows. You don't have to do anything special to communicate with Him. There are no prescribed prayers or rituals that you have to go through to talk with Him. He is your access to God the Father 24 hours a day. You will have His undivided attention at all times. No matter what you have to tell Him, no matter how bad it might be, He will listen patiently to all that is in your heart and petition His Father on your behalf. He will comfort you in your time of need. He will give you peace in times of trial. He will fill your heart when you are sad. He will forgive anything that you have done. He will heal your spirit when you are troubled. He will love you unconditionally!
You don't have to go around feeling empty. You don't have to constantly worry about everything. You don't have to be unhappy. You don't have to be alone. You don't have to feel unloved. You don't have to be concerned about going to Hell. You now have someone who cares about you more than you could ever imagine. The best part comes at the end of your physical life! If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior He will welcome you into the Kingdom of God when He returns to earth. You will live forever with God in a perfect Heavenly Paradise.
Remember what was said in the first paragraph about forgetting all those things that Christians believe about Christ? By themselves they don't mean much to most people, however, in the context of the most perfect friendship you will ever have they suddenly take on new meaning.
So why Jesus? Imagine a friend who is willing to die for you so that you might live forever in a perfect Kingdom Paradise. Imagine someone who is willing to give you eternal life in Heaven, just because he loves you. Imagine a brother who can heal a disease you have, and who will carry all your worries and your fears for you. Imagine someone who just happens to have the most powerful God in the whole universe as his Father, who can petition Him on your behalf anytime you ask. Well, you don't have to imagine it any longer. You have all of this right now!
You don't have to wait for your Friend to do many of these things for you because He already has. He has already died for you. He is now your King and Savior! He has already offered you salvation. He has already offered you eternity in His Heavenly Kingdom. He is ready and willing to do even more for you, if you will let Him. He wants to carry your burdens. He wants you to give him your worries and your fears. He wants to give you an abundant, happy time here on earth. You only have to do one thing. You have to be willing to believe in Him and accept Him and all that He offers you. His gifts are all free. His forgiveness of your sins is free, but you have to be willing to accept them.
You did not come to this web page by accident. God loves YOU, and He wants you to have a relationship with Him. He wants you to live forever with Him in Heaven. He brought you here! The problem is that most people have never even really thought about God, His Kingdom, or His wonderful gifts. A false gospel has been preached about Jesus that has taken the focus off the King and His Kingdom. People are so busy with their everyday activities that they don't even think about the most basic spiritual matters of life, much less think about what will happen to them after they die. How about you? Do you have any kind of spiritual belief?
Do you think there is some kind of life after death?
If you died right now do you know where would you go?
If what you believe were not true, would you want to know it?
These are questions you need to answer before it's too late. Why should you become a Christian?
