So now that we know we can trust the Bible, let's ask some questions.
What did Jesus Say About Himself?
Jesus wasn't shy in talking about Himself. Although Christ was extraordinarily meek, He did not hide who He was.
"I am the light of the World. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." - John 8:12
"All things have been handed over to Me by My Father, and no one know who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him." - Luke 10: 22
"Jesus said unto him, I AM the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes unto the Father, but by me." -John 14:6
What was His purpose here on Earth?
What was the purpose of it all? Jesus left His throne in Heaven to walk with us. Let's see what the Word says.
"The thief comes only to steal kill and destroy; I have come that they might have life, and life more abundantly." -John 10:10
"And he said, 'The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.'"
"You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
What do I do now?
Jesus has paid the price for our sin. The Bible says that the wages of sin is death. God is completely without sin and our sin has separated us from God. But because Jesus died (and was raised from the dead) for us we can now have a relationship with God. Imagine someone walking into a courtroom and confessing to a crime that you committed even though they were innocent. Now, to receive the gift of salvation, here's what you do.
"...Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." -Acts 2:38
"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven." -Matthew 7:21
"Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me." -Revelation 3:19-20
