What is Your Explanation Why We Need Jesus Christ?

On this page, I will share with you, why you need Jesus, not religion? Do you need Jesus, or are you just practicing religion? Did you know that you can know God personally, the Creator of the universe made you and wants an intimate relationship with you, The way to know the Father is through his Son: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” John 14:6. How can you meet Jesus for yourself?

Bottom line is that we all are sinners and without Jesus, we would have to pay the price for our sins which would be death and separation from God. That is one of many reasons why we need Jesus Christ!  I need Jesus Christ in my life more than I realize! ~ Bill Greguska

 

Did You Know Why We Need Jesus?

 

Let Me Try to Explain Why We Need Jesus in Our Life? 

We know Jesus existed, the Bible is trustworthy, and Jesus’ claim to be God is backed up by evidence and reason. Now, why do you need him personally? What will he do for you that no one else can? The Bible diagnoses our problem: “All have sinned and fell short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23. If you’re the exception, the one person who has never lied or cheated or had an immoral thought, I’d like to meet you and learn how you did it. The rest of us know that we’ve made mistakes and sinned. So what? “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” Romans 6:23.

God cannot let my sins into his perfect heaven, or it wouldn’t be heaven any longer. My sins must be punished, my debt paid. This is why Jesus came: to die in our place, taking our punishment on himself (see Isaiah 53:5, 12. No one else in all of human history has done this or could do it. Every other person has sinned so that they owed their debt to God. Only Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life Hebrews 4:15, so he had no debt to pay. He could die for us, taking our place and purchasing our salvation. He then rose from the dead to prove his divinity, and to show us that we would live after death with him in paradise John 14:1-6. You need Jesus in your life so that your sins can be forgiven and you can spend eternity in heaven. He is the only one who can give you this gift. But every gift, even one which comes from God, must be opened.

Learn Why We Need Jesus More Than You Understand?

 “The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians: who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.” ~ Kevin Max

Galatians 1:4 who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father.

 

Who is Jesus? And Why We Need Jesus?

The most important question in human history is the one Jesus asked his followers 20 centuries ago: “Who do you say I am?” Matthew 16:15. Muslims believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, ascended to heaven and will return to our planet at the end of history–but they do not believe that he was divine. Many Buddhists and Hindus view him as an enlightened teacher. Many Jews see him as a brilliant rabbi. How did Jesus see himself? 

In recent years many people have claimed that Jesus saw himself only as a religious teacher and that the Church defied him over the centuries. Not according to the eyewitnesses. When Jesus stood on trial for his life, the high priest challenged him: “I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God” Matthew 26:63. His answer sealed his fate: “Yes, it is as you say” v. 64. Earlier he told his opponents, “Before Abraham was born, I am!” John 8:58. He clearly claimed to be God. Jesus said his enemies, “‘My Father is always at work to this very day, and I, too, am working.’ For this reason, the Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God” John 5:17-18. Later he taught his disciples, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” John 14:6.

C. S. Lewis Was a Very Brilliant Men of The 20th Century

A converted atheist, he later wrote these words about Jesus:

I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the foolish thing the people often say about Him. “I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.” That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher.
 
He would either be a lunatic, on a level with the man who says he’s a poached egg or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of Him and kill Him as a demon, or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to (Mere Christianity) New York: Macmillan, 1943 (55-6)

“If sympathy is all that human beings need, then the Cross of Christ is an absurdity and there is absolutely no need for it. What the world needs is not “a little bit of love,” but major surgery. If you think you are helping lost people with your sympathy and understanding, you are a traitor to Jesus Christ. You must have a right-standing relationship with Him yourself, and pour your life out in helping others in His way— not in a human way that ignores God. ” ~ Oswald Chambers
