It all starts with Jesus
In our modern day world, everyone has an opinion about Jesus.
Some think He’s a great teacher, others think He is just a prophet, while others think He is God’s only Son. Whatever you believe, we can probably agree that Jesus radically changed things.
At Northgate we believe God wants to radically change all people today too. If you have never experienced Him working in your life, what’s stopping you?
JOHN 14:6 says (and these are Jesus words to everyone)
I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well.
Jesus claimed He knew God. No big deal, as plenty of people have made that claim.
But Jesus also went on to say “He was God”. And this upset the religious leaders of His day so much that they killed Him. But that was 2,000 years ago. Why does it matter to you now? How does “who Jesus is” and “what has He has done”, affect your life 24/7 when you are trying to take care of your kids or your working at your job, or just keeping your head above water?
God, the Creator of the universe, has a purpose for you and your life. He loves you and wants to help you because He is a good God. And because of that, His plans are better than your plans. You don’t have to measure up to some impossible religious standard to know Him. You just have to take a few simple steps.
If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,‘ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
You don’t have to be perfect. Through His death on the cross, and then coming back from the dead, Jesus took all of your wrong and gave you all of His right. If you believe that and commit to following Him, your life will never be the same. It’s as simple as repenting of your sin, declaring you want to follow Jesus, and believing He is who He says He is.
Believing in Jesus is the first step on the greatest journey of your life. When you do this…you haven’t finished the race—you’ve just gotten started. The best is yet to come!
