A friend, brother, whoever you need Him to be....
Jesus Christ is someone who is talked about over and over and we've heard His name a lot but many don't actually know Him. For instance, you might know of someone but not personally. It's the same way with Christ. Jesus is more than the pictures you see on FB of "Jesus" and the "devil" arm wrestling. He is the living breathing Son of God. Yes, He is alive! You might have heard about Him dying on the cross 2,000 years ago, and you might be thinking to yourself, "What does that have to do with me?" Well, there's a problem that all man kind shares and that problem is sin. Sin is basically when we fall short of how perfect God is and it stems from our own selfishness... Whether it's lying, stealing, sex outside of marriage, getting drunk, or whatever we've all committed it. So what happens now? Because of our sin we became separated from God, we couldn't be with Him like He planned because of our own selfishness. That's when Jesus stepped into the picture. God knew that He wanted to be with us for eternity, but because of our sin that was impossible, so He sent His only Son to become a person and live a completely sinless life on the Earth for us and to take the punishment that we deserve for our sins. The Bible says that Jesus became our sin, even though He didn't deserve it. By dying on the cross He paid the price for your sin so you could spend eternity with Him. Unlike a lot of people when they pay for something for you, they want something in return. All Jesus says is, "Love Me." If you've never read a Bible I encourage you to read the book of Matthew which covers the life of Jesus. It will bring absolute comfort to your soul, and I guarantee it's what you've been looking for! If you want to get to know Him, simply talk to Him about what's on your mind. You might not get an audible response, but know that He's listening.
