Did you notice the verb tense I used when I said, “is” Jesus? Using the verb “was” isn’t really correct because Jesus IS alive. You might question this and say, “Jesus is dead, just like everyone else when they die. How can that be?” My friend that’s where you are wrong.
Who do you say that Jesus is? Some might say he was just a man from Nazareth. Others might say he was a prophet. Still others might say he was a teacher and healer of the sick. Some of these would be correct in part but the real answer is Jesus Christ is the son of the living God and is alive and sitting at the right hand of God.
How do I know these things? This information is found in God’s word, the Bible. The importance of you knowing who Jesus is will determine where you spend eternity after you die. For those who have embraced Jesus as their Lord and Savior, they will spend eternity in heaven. For others who have denied Him or called him just a man then their destination is sealed according to the Bible.
Doing good works or being a moral person is not enough according to God’s word. The key is to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. By doing this your sins are forgiven for all time and your future home will be in heaven. An important verse to remember from the Bible is what Jesus said about gaining entrance into heaven. It is found in John 14:6 where Jesus says, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” That statement seals your eternal destination. If you accept it, great. If you deny it, then your choice is the wrong one.
