Who is Jesus?

Updated: May 3, 2022

“Who is Jesus, and why does He matter for my life?

Those are two of the best questions anyone can ask! Here is a brief answer to those two important questions:

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 God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)” (Ephesians 2:4–5). “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting 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; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day…” (1 Corinthians 15:3–4). “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

He desires to come into your life and save you.

Here’s how Jesus said it: “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life…” (John 3:36). “He that believeth on me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47). “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (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 whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).
