Many people do not realize they need Jesus. Why? If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus, then you are going to miss out on eternal life in Heaven. What is even worse than that, is you will suffer for your sins in Hell for all eternity. The good news is, you do not have to go to Hell, because Jesus already died for your sins and went to Hell for you and paid your penalty.
Some people believe they can earn their way to Heaven by works. If you are one of them, how do you know when you have done enough? Why would God send His Son Jesus to die on the cross for your sins? God made it so simple for you to have eternal life that you do not earn, deserve nor worthy for it.
Many people believe in God, but do not really know him. If I ask you if knew who the President of the United States is, you would be able to tell me his name. Just because you know who he is, does not necessitously mean you personally know him. When someone asked Jesus about eternal life He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." (John 14: 6 NKJV)
There is no other way to get to heaven nor to the Father except through having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the Son of God. How easy is it to begin this relationship? In Romans 10: 9 it says, "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved". (NKJV)
When you believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that God raised in the dead, then confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Your Lord and Savior you will then be saved. What are you saved from? You will be saved from going to Hell, since Jesus already took all of your sins on the cross, died and went to Hell for you.
Once you realize and believe you need Jesus, you will ask Father God for forgiveness and receive Jesus as your Savior. When you do, your life will never be the same. You will then begin a new life and begin to live your life the best way – God's way.
