Who is Jesus? This questions has been asked of Jesus for over two millennia. But the Bible is very clear on who Jesus is. Jesus Christ is without question the most significant person in the history of the world. The Bible says much about Jesus
Jesus is the Son of God:
Jesus is equal with God:
“In the beginning was the Word [Jesus], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God” (John 1:1-2).
“I and the Father are one” – Jesus (John 10:30).
Jesus is the only way to God:
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” – Jesus (John 14:6).
“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
“For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5).
C.S. Lewis, a well-known Christian author, wrote of Jesus, “Either this man was, and is, the son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
There’s no in between with Jesus. Either he’s God or He’s not.
What Jesus Did For You.
Jesus died on our behalf so we didn’t have to
Jesus lived a perfect life so that He could offer Himself on the cross in your place as the only sacrifice that would satisfy God’s justice for your sin: (2 Corinthians 5:21, John 1:29)
Jesus died so that God could demonstrate His love for sinners and so that God’s just punishment for sin could be placed on Jesus and not on you. (Romans 5:8-9, 1 John 4:10, Hebrews 9:22)
Jesus rose from the grave and appeared to hundreds of people so that you would have a living Savior and Lord: (1 Corinthians 15:3-8)
Trust that a good God who loves you and desires His best for you. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Reject any and all of your own “good works” as completely ineffective to save yourself and mend your separation from God (i.e. church attendance, religious activities like communion, baptism, or prayer, charitable giving, personal goodness and kindness, helping the poor and disadvantaged, good intentions, etc.) (Roman 4:4-5)
Accept God’s gracious offer to save you by confessing your faith, hope, and trust in Jesus Christ and His righteousness and sacrifice of Himself on the cross on your behalf as only payment before God for your sin debt before Him. (Romans 10:8-13)
Rely on the power of the Holy Spirit to do turn away from your sin and turn toward God. (Mark 1:14-15, Acts 2:37-38))
Follow Jesus Christ as your Lord (master) by obeying Him and His Words — this is the evidence of one who is saved. (1 John 2:1-6, Matthew 7:21-23)
