God gave man a free will. In exercising his free will man may choose to do evil or to do well. The consequences of man’s choices are seen all around us. But God in His mercy, sent Jesus His son to destroy the works of evil. Who can man turn to overcome evil and the consequences in their lives? The answer is Jesus Christ.

When Jesus walked the earth, He healed the blind, cleansed the leper, healed the sick, healed demon possessed people, and restored dignity to a prostitute, a cheating tax collector and a man who was caught lying. He raised a woman’s only son from the dead. Jesus ate with people who society had no time for, but His love transformed their lives.

Why do I need Jesus?

Is your heart broken?

Do you worry about tomorrow?

Are you sick?

Are you troubled by demons?

Do you know where you will spend eternity?

Is your heart longing for love and acceptance?

Do you need someone to turn to?

Are you laden with guilt, anger, thoughts of revenge?

Do you…..?

Are you…?

You can fill in the blanks with your own needs. Jesus Christ is not a magic wand, but when you choose to turn your life over to Him and you choose His ways, your life will be transformed. He will give you His joy. He can heal your body, mind, soul and spirit. He can heal your family.

It may be news to you that when God created man that He created us in His image. He created us to share His glory, His goodness, His fullness of life, joy, beauty, love. He did not do this for the animals. He did this for humans.. He created us to prosper, multiply and reproduce His glory and fill the earth with His glory. The earth that we live in was meant to be a beautiful place for all creation. 

What happened?

Evil happened. Rebellion against God happened. First it took place in Heaven and that evil was thrown out of heaven and onto the earth. It corrupted man. Man joined the rebellion against God. He wanted to be god. The bible said that man’s heart is bent on evil. Our perfect human nature was corrupted. Man cannot do anything to bring himself back to his original perfect nature, which was filled with God’s glory.

This is why Jesus came. This is why God sent Jesus to destroy evil. First evil has to be destroyed out of our own souls. Man made himself an enemy to God. When evil entered man, man lost the goodness that he was created with. His rebellion against God separated Him from God. Righteousness and unrighteousness or goodness and evil cannot coexist. God’s plan is to destroy evil forever. His plan from the beginning was to save humankind. He knew that when He gave us a will that we would choose wrongly and so, He had a plan in place to heal us and to bring us back into right relationship with Him. 

The first man’s rebellion placed a death sentence on all of our heads. Rebellion has to be judged because God is a God of justice. Evil cannot go unpunished. However, the Judge, God found someone who was willing to take our place, someone who was willing to die in our place. 

Jesus willingly took your place and He fulfilled the requirement that man must die for his rebellion against God. Rebellion has to die in our hearts and we must turn our hearts back to God. 

Why would the Judge, God, give Jesus His only begotten son to die for us? His love for you and I is as great as His love for His son Jesus. His love for us was not conditional. We did nothing to deserve it.

Jesus not only died to pay the penalty for our rebellion against God, but He offers us the great life exchange. We need His life in us, so we can live again as God created us to live in the first place. The bible says that it was Jesus, the WORD, who created us. God spoke the WORD and there was life. This is a mystery to our minds. The bible also says that Jesus’ light is in us. This is what life is. It is light. We can invite His Spirit to come and dwell inside of us. That same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead can bring transformation to your life and to your life situation.

When we acknowledge that we are living in rebellion against God and His ways and we decide that we do not want to live that way anymore, then we are ready to ask Jesus into our heart. 

The Bible is clear on how to receive Jesus. Repent of our sins, all that we are guilty of doing, saying and thinking that is evil in God’s sight. Confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is the LORD. He has to become our Lord. Walking in obedience to the word of God and to his voice will begin to change our lives. 

After we invite Jesus into our heart, two things happen, we become a son of God and He begins the work of making us like Himself again. We come into covenant with Him, a blood covenant. Jesus’ blood sealed a covenant with God for us so that now, we fight the same enemy and we become God’s friend.

You can begin your journey with God: for salvation is to know Jesus and God the Father and His Holy Spirit. 

You must be baptised in water. This is important, it is a public declaration that you are a follower of Jesus and that you are leaving the old life of rebelling and death and starting a new life in God. 

Do not take the journey alone. Find a church who seeks a relationship with God the Father, Jesus the Son and Holy Spirit, attend a bible study group and begin to grow in relations with God and with His people.
