Who? Why? What? Questions that have to do with this man named Jesus. A man who loves unconditionally, walked this earth in perfection, and died brutally and willingly life for you and I. Naturally many of us would have questions about a man who would do such a thing. Especially for someone like me. You might even say to yourself something similar I said and continue to say. “If God ONLY knew what I have done or what kind of person I used to be.” Guess what… HE KNOWS and HE still CHOSE YOU! On to the 3 questions. But first the base scripture to set the questions up.
John 14:6 NKJV
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
WHO IS HE?
If you have never met someone before one of the first questions you might ask is this one. Remember back before you were “saved” and the new guy in church and someone started telling you about a guy named Jesus. A guy you have never met before. You probably said out loud or to yourself. Who is HE? A fair question to ask before getting into a relationship with this person. Very simply put in John 14:6 Jesus tells us who HE is.
Answer: The Way
When you connect with Christ you find THE way. Very simply put. You want to get to Heaven? You want to get to my Father? Choose Jesus. Jesus came to give us LIFE. Not just an ordinary,barely make it kind of life but an ABUNDANT life. I don’t know about you but I like to follow the one that has been there before or knows how to get there. Jesus is madly in love with you and wants you to choose Him to have LIFE everlasting. Best decision ever.
WHY DID HE COME?
Since the beginning of time there has been a real devil out there deceiving many in believing that we do not NEED God. Lies are told to us and we tend to believe them. The world is trying to give you your identity when we can and need to find our identity in Jesus. The devil does not want you believing in God and what HE says about you.
Answer: The Truth
Jesus kicking back in Heaven with His daddy all comfortable and stuff came down to this earth to reveal the TRUTH. And the TRUTH is each and every one of us was created BY God FOR God. Who we are can be found in HIM. When connected to Jesus you are connected to TRUTH. With TRUTH comes FREEDOM.
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH HIM?
This is one of my favorite questions to ask. Stop and think for a moment what it is you do with someone who has given it all. A man who has shown you unconditional,raw and real love by dying on a cross for you. Even while we were still sinners He did this. A man who gave up the comfort of Heaven to suffer here on earth even if it was for one. What do you do with someone with that kind of heart?
Do LIFE with Him. Like I said earlier He cam to give us LIFE and LIFE ABUNDANTLY. So because HE gave us LIFE we give our LIFE back to him. Serve HIM. Become a fully devoted follower of Jesus and your LIFE will be a blessing. Your LIFE will be filled with purpose. Your LIFE will leave a legacy. Because you are connected to Jesus, you are connected to LIFE.
