Who Is Jesus?

Jesus is God in the flesh, come to the earth to save humanity by His death and resurrection on our behalf. Let us explain!

The Bible tells us that there is one God, and only one God. God created all things, including you and me. This God is all-powerful, infinite, eternal, and all-knowing. He is also a good and loving God, perfect in every way.

God created us as human beings to know Him and to love Him, and to enjoy a wonderful relationship of mutual love together. However, we all have turned away from God in our own way – chasing after other things such as money, position, or pleasure, ignoring Him, lying, cheating, stealing, etc. The consequence of this is that we are all separated from God, detached from Him. This is the reason that we can’t find any true joy or peace in life, because we are separated from the God who created us and loves us.

But God didn’t want the situation to remain this way. At a particular point in time, (2000 years ago) and in a particular place (West Asia), God Himself came to earth as a man. This man was named Jesus, and He was the most perfect man who ever lived. Jesus showed Himself to be God through His power – He walked on water, fed thousands of people with a few loaves of bread, and calmed storms with a few words from His mouth. But Jesus also had compassion on the poor, He healed the sick, He cast out evil spirits, and spent time with the weak and destitute. This man really was God!

But the people didn’t appreciate Jesus. They thought Him just a magician and a deceiver of people who was stealing all the attention. Ultimately the people killed Jesus by crucifying Him on a cross, which is one the most painful and humiliating ways of execution ever invented by man. Jesus hung on the cross for several hours, and then died.

But this was all part of God’s plan. In fact this was the very reason that Jesus came to earth – to die. He died for us, for YOU and for ME. We deserved punishment for all the sins we have done against God. But the punishment that we deserved, Jesus took on Himself on the cross. This is why He died, in order to pay the penalty for our sins. The world has never seen such great love before, that Jesus gave His very life for us!

But the great news is that Jesus did not stay dead! Death could not hold Him. Three days later Jesus rose again, to show that He conquered sin and death.

Now Jesus is alive in heaven, and rules over the world as Lord of the universe. The Bible tells us that if we turn from our sin and believe in Jesus, our sins will be forgiven and we will have eternal life, which is a new life of joy, peace, and power. This new life will go on forever with God in heaven, even after we die.

Will you accept Him by faith today, and receive the new life that He offers to you? Listen to these words of Jesus: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).

One Solitary Life – A Poem About Jesus

He was born in an obscure village
The child of a peasant woman
He grew up in another obscure village
Where he worked in a carpenter shop
Until he was thirty

He never wrote a book
He never held an office
He never went to college
He never visited a big city
He never travelled more than two hundred miles
From the place where he was born
He did none of the things
Usually associated with greatness
He had no credentials but himself

He was only thirty three
His friends ran away
One of them denied him
He was turned over to his enemies
And went through the mockery of a trial
He was nailed to a cross between two thieves
While dying, his executioners gambled for his clothing
The only property he had on earth

When he was dead
He was laid in a borrowed grave
Through the pity of a friend

Nineteen centuries have come and gone
And today Jesus is the central figure of the human race
And the leader of mankind's progress
All the armies that have ever marched
All the navies that have ever sailed
All the parliaments that have ever sat
All the kings that ever reigned put together
Have not affected the life of mankind on earth
As powerfully as that one solitary life.
