He is God, and He loves you.
Jesus said He was God. He proved it by His life, His words, His deeds, and His love. “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved.” (Ephesians 2:4–5). “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16).
He died and rose again to pay for your sins.
Our sin separates us from God and requires the payment of death (Romans 3:32, 6:23). Yet, because Jesus died for you, you don’t have to pay for your own sins! “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day…” (1 Corinthians 15:3–4). “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8).
He desires to come into your life and save you.
Here’s how Jesus said it: “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life...” (John 3:36). “Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.” (John 6:47). “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;” (John 11:25).
Going to Heaven isn’t about being good or religious. It’s about trusting Christ alone. Call out to Him, ask Him to come into your life, save you from sin, and give you His gift of eternal life. It’s the best decision you will ever make. “for, Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
