JESUS

Who Is He?

Our Savior God desires all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of the truth.

Have you just prayed to receive the Lord Jesus? This page is for you.

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of God, to those who believe into His name.”—John 1:12

If you’ve just prayed to receive the Lord Jesus Christ, you are now a saved person. God has forgiven you of all your sins and has saved you from eternal perdition. Not only that, you also now have the life of God in you. This page has some good things for you to know as you begin your life as a child of God.

Jesus now lives inside of you
When you prayed to the Lord Jesus, He immediately came to live inside of you, in your spirit. Now, He is with you all time - wherever you are, He is there.

You are saved forever
When you received Christ as your Savior, He came to live in you, and you received a new life, God’s life. Much as you were born of your parents’ human life as a baby, you have now been born of God’s life and are His child. Whether you feel happy or sad, whether you’ve been a good child or a naughty child, you are still His child.

Contact Him anytime, anywhere
You can talk to Jesus about anything at any time - about what you’re thinking or feeling; about a decision you’re making, big or small; about anything at all. This is called prayer. You can also thank Him, praise Him, sing to Him, confess to Him, and call on His name. You don’t have to be in a special place or building to pray to Him; you can talk to Him anywhere.

The Bible is your food
The Bible is different from any other book. It is God’s speaking, breathed out by God and written down by men. It is meant not only to teach us many things about God, Christ, and the Christian life, but even more it is meant to be our food. The Bible tells us that it is “guileless milk” for our nourishment and “sweet as honey” to our taste. One of the best practices you can pick up as a new believer is to read a little bit of the Bible every day. Beginning at Matthew, the first book of the New Testament, and maybe a chapter or half a chapter every morning would be an excellent way to start.

You and other Christians
When you were born as a child of God, you were not born as an only child. You became a member of the household of God, and you now have countless brothers and sisters in Christ! As brothers and sisters in Christ, we love one another and build one another up. When we gather in a home, a coffee shop, a park - wherever - we can enjoy the sweet fellowship available only to members of the same family. We believers are also referred to in the Bible as the Body of Christ, the house of God, and the church.

 

Church
When we were born again, we became members of the Body of Christ, the church. In the Bible, the church does not refer to a particular building or place, but to a group of people - to Christians. All the children of God throughout all time and space together make up the church. God’s desire is that His children would grow in Christ and be built up together in love. Together as His church and in His life, they would become His expression on earth today.
