The Good News About… Who is Jesus?
Jesus is the most amazing person that has ever lived. He was born in obscurity and never travelled far from home, but he has impacted human civilization like no one else. Today, over 2.3 billion people call him their Savior and Lord. Their lives have been transformed by his grace. You can know Jesus, too! Here are three truths about him.
We all know something is wrong with the world. Death, disease, and injustice abound. The problem is that we live outside of God’s original design. Humankind, it turns out is not kind. Our sinful rebellion has brought brokenness and death to every one of us.
However, because God loves the world, he sent his Son as the great rescue plan. The Eternal Son of God became human in the womb of the virgin Mary. As John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” So what was that rescue plan?
More impressive than Jesus’ miracles is the reality that Jesus lived a perfectly sinless life. He
never disobeyed God or broken God’s law—even when tempted by the devil in person (see
Matthew 4:1-11). He always loved God and loved people.
Because Jesus is perfect, he could take our place for our sins. He is the “Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.” (see John 1:29) On Good Friday he died on the cross to pay the debt of our sins.
Amazingly, Jesus did not remain dead in his borrowed tomb. He rose again on the third day. After appearing to hundreds of people for 40 days, he ascended and returned to heaven. His resurrection demonstrates that he was truly innocent and vindicated by the Father. His ascension demonstrates that he is the Lord who has all authority. One day he will judge the world in righteousness.
