Jesus

Know Him

Our mission at Christian Outreach Church is to lead you into a growing relationship with Jesus. Most people know of Jesus, just like we know of many celebrities. We believe in a God who designed you and I for a personal relationship with Him and healthy relationships with each other. The greatest first step you can take is to receive the love, forgiveness and relationship Jesus is extending to you today. That is, to know Him rather than just knowing of Him.

Who is Jesus?

“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” (Colossians 1:1) I can imagine local people everywhere when Jesus showed up talking, speculating, arguing, ideologising… Did you hear…, It is said of him that… Did you know…? Especially the religious people of the day, the teachers of the law. Wherever He was, if he opened His mouth or did something, He was the talk of the town.

When Jesus calms the storm in Matthew 8:27 the disciples said “what sort of man is this, which even the winds and the sea obey him?”

Jesus was incomparable. We always try to compare public figures with similar people in history because we like to categorise in order to have a reference point.

When the questions above are personalised, it becomes the most important question you and I will ever be asked or have to answer. Who is Jesus? Or more importantly who is Jesus to YOU? Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)


The Bible says

“...but God shows us his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
“Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
“...if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9


Salvation

After reading the above we must ask “What must I do to be saved?” This question was asked of Paul from his jailer. The answer was simple, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” (Acts 16:30)

So how do you do that? Jesus answers that question in John 14:6, “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” So we must believe that “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13)

Dear God,
I’m praying this prayer because I know that I have done wrong. Please forgive me of all the things I have done wrong in the past.

I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and now He is Lord over my life.

Thank you for saving me. Thank you that I am now a Christian.
Amen.


Congratulations! We’d love to hear if you made a decision.
