WHY DOES JESUS MATTER?

There is not one of us who does not struggle to find purpose, answers, and help. If we’re honest, some days we’re just trying to keep our heads above water—take care of the kids, pay the bills, and make ends meet. In the end, we all want to feel we have what it takes.

But we also have deeper questions. Why am I here? Is this all there is? Who am I? What happens when I die?

Jesus matters because He came to answer our deepest questions. He came to give us purpose for living now
and settle the question of where we’ll spend eternity.

JESUS BRINGS MEANING TO YOUR LIFE

God, the creator of the universe, has a plan for your life. He loves you and wants to help you because He made you—on purpose, with a purpose. He knows you need help. He knows you can’t do it on your own. That’s why He sent Jesus. The bible teaches that we were born sinners. Because of sin, we were separated from a holy God. The bible also teaches that if we die in our sinful state we will be eternally separated from God. This is why Jesus died. He died on the cross so we as sinners might be reconciled to a holy God. We must understand that Jesus is our only hope, and trust Him as Savior. Upon trusting Jesus Christ as Savior, we are reconciled to God,  our sins are forgiven and we are promised eternal life. Jesus loved you enough to die for you, and He can bring incredible meaning and purpose to your life.

 

NOW WHAT?
 

If you are ready to meet Jesus, pray this prayer:

“Dear Lord Jesus, I admit that I’ve fallen short. I’ve sinned and need your forgiveness. I believe that You lived, died and rose again so that I could be connected to God. I confess you as my Lord and commit my life to You. I give you my past, present and future. Take my life and use it. I give it to You. Amen.”

If you prayed to meet Jesus, please let us know! If you have any questions, we want to help you take a next step. Stop by Bible Baptist Church this Sunday.
