What the Bible Says About Believing
in Jesus as Your Lord & Saviour
God takes the initiative
God takes the initiative to restore His broken relationship with mankind.
From that time of the fall in Eden, the Creator had a plan in place to re-connect with His creation. The gospel of Jesus Christ is God’s plan.
– Matthew 7:7 NLT
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
– John 14:6 NIV
– Romans 6:23 NIV
Jesus is THE Christ, the Messiah spoken of by the Old Testament prophets about
a Saviour King who will deliver the Israelites from slavery. Little did they know
that God Himself, as Jesus Christ would come down to earth for them.
But Jesus Christ did not die on the cross just for them. He was THE sacrifice for
all of mankind to be saved from the slavery of sin, of death and their eternal consequences.
– Matthew 5:17 NLT
– John 5:39 NLT
– John 1:29 NKJV
– Luke 24:25-27 NIV
– Mark 10:45 NIV
– Revelation 5:12 NIV
The gospel story of Jesus Christ is for us today. Jesus is the embodiment
of the same God who created the earth and all the heavens.
So it is important to understand that by wrapping Himself in flesh as Jesus the Christ,
God emptied Himself of all His gloriousness. He did that for you and I.
