(my only hope)
I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is the Messiah. He is God who came to this earth 2000 years becoming a human in every way, except He did not sin. He worked as a carpenter in Nazareth but for the last three years of His short life He travelled Palestine teaching about the Kingdom.The whole focus of time centres on a cross at Calvary where God experienced death. He experienced death so that I don’t have to. On the third day He rose from death triumphant over it, and triumphant over sin. He became sin for me; I am covered by His holiness; He went to hell for me; I go to Heaven. He has gone back to heaven but He is going to return at the end of time. All who trust in Him will also rise from death and be with Him forever.
All He asks us is to believe in Him, nothing else. Please believe in Him.
Only in the God/Man, Jesus, does life have real meaning and purpose.
(John 3: 16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
(Romans 8: 35 – 39) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I have believed this from before I can remember.
