TOP 10 REASONS TO LOVE JESUS CHRIST AND ACCEPT HIM AS LORD AND SAVIOR
10. Salvation only comes through Christ
There is salvation in no one else! There is no other name in all of heaven for people to call on to save them.
9. In Him is life
The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.
8. He is the only way to get to God
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through Me.”
7. He will forgive all of our sins
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
6. He’s coming back again to judge all mankind
26 The Father has life in Himself, and He has granted His Son to have life in Himself. 27 And He has given Him authority to judge all mankind because He is the Son of Man.
5. He’s going to prepare a place for those who love Him
1 “Don’t be troubled. You trust God, now trust in Me. 2 There are many rooms in My Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would tell you plainly. 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with Me where I am.
4. He loved us while we were still sinners
8 But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.9 And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, He will certainly save us from God’s judgment. 10 For since we were restored to friendship with God by the death of His Son while we were still His enemies, we will certainly be delivered from eternal punishment by His life. 11 So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God — all because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us in making us friends of God.
3. Because He will set us free from sin
31 Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you keep obeying my teachings. 32 And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 “But we are descendants of Abraham,” they said. “We have never been slaves to anyone on earth. What do you mean, ‘set free’?” 34 Jesus replied, “I assure you that everyone who sins is a slave of sin. 35 A slave is not a permanent member of the family, but a son is part of the family forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will indeed be free.
2. Because He has all authority on heaven and on earth
Jesus came and told His disciples, “I have been given complete authority in heaven and on earth.
1. Because He chose us
You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.
