You Know Jesus?
Do you know who Jesus Christ is? More
importantly, do you know Jesus Christ personally? Is Jesus
Christ making a difference in your life?
Sometimes in the routine of living we begin
to take things for granted. We think we know who Jesus is.
We may have heard about Jesus in church or from a friend or
neighbor. But who is this Jesus?
Who Is Jesus?
The name of Jesus comes from the Greek
for "Joshua," which means "God is salvation."
We gain some added insight about the name of Jesus in the
account of His birth to Mary: "She will give birth to
a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he
will save his people from their sins." (Matthew 1:21)
Simply put, Jesus is the Savior. He is "God with us."
(Matthew 1:23) He is the "Lamb of God who takes away
the sins of the world!" (John 1:29)
The Bible also tells us that Jesus is our
only sure and lasting refuge for hope, peace and comfort.
Because of sin, every one of us has been separated from God
who is absolutely holy. Stress, hopelessness, emotional and
spiritual pain overwhelm us. We do not know where to turn.
Jesus says, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)
Jesus Christ can make the difference
in your life. He can give you the rest you have been yearning
for. He is the giver of comfort, peace and a hope that is
eternal. All you need to do is to get to know Him personally.
