Christianity is Christ.
Jesus Christ lives! He is risen from the dead!
Historical objective evidence proves that beyond a
After Jesus died on the
cross Pilate made sure from the Roman executioners
that Jesus was dead. They certified to him that
Jesus Christ was dead. Nicodemus and Josephus took
the body of Jesus and "bound it in linen cloths with
the spices," as is the burial custom of the Jews. As
they wound linen "bandages" round His body, they
sprinkled the powered sticky spices into the folds.
A separate head wrapping was used for His head. Then
they laid the body on a stone slab which had been
hewn out of the side of the cave-tomb.
Let's suppose that we had
been there in the sepulcher when the resurrection of
Jesus actually took place. What would we have seen
that night? John R. W. Stott writing in Basic
Christianity helps us to visualize it. He
Should we have seen Jesus
begin to move, and then yawn and stretch and get up?
No. We do not believe He returned to this life. He
did not recover from a swoon; He had died, and He
rose again. His was a resurrection, not a
resuscitation. We believe that He passed
miraculously through death into an altogether new
sphere of existence. What then should we have seen,
had we been there? We should suddenly have noticed
that the body had disappeared. It would have
"vaporized", being transmuted into something new and
different and wonderful. It would have passed
through the grave clothes, as it was later to pass
through closed doors, leaving them untouched and
almost undisturbed. Almost, but not quiet. The body
clothes, under the weight of 100 pounds of spices,
once the support of the body had been removed, would
have subsided or collapsed, and would now be lying
flat. A gap would have appeared between the body
clothes and the head napkin itself, because of the
complicated crisscross pattern of the bandages,
might well have retained its concave shape, a
crumpled turban with no head inside it.
The apostle John arrived
at the tomb on Easter morning. He saw the cloths
"lying" (John 20:5, 6). "He saw, as they were lying
(or collapsed), the linen cloths." The next thing he
saw was the head napkin was "not . . . with the
linen cloths but . . . in a place by itself" (v. 7).
As Stott observes, "Not that it had been bundled up
and tossed into a corner. It still lay on the stone
slab, but was separated from the body cloths by a
noticeable space." The napkin was "not lying . . .
but wrapped together . . .” It was twirled. The
rounded shape which the napkin still preserved was
intact. "The stone slab, the collapsed grave
clothes, the shell of the head–cloth and the gap
between the two. Jesus had passed right through it.
No wonder they 'saw and believed.' The grave clothes
"had been neither touched nor folded nor manipulated
by any human being. They were like a discarded
chrysalis, from which the butterfly has emerged."
The angel said, "Come,
see the place where He lay." He is not here. He is
alive! He is alive! Christ Jesus is alive! He is
risen from the dead.
That message is good
news. It is revolutionary. That truth changes lives.
Everything we are and do as Christians depends upon
that glorious truth.
At the very center of
Christianity is our union with Christ. We use
various expressions to describe this intense
intimacy with the risen Christ such as personal
union with Christ, oneness with Christ, "in Christ
Jesus," communion with Christ, etc.
The apostle Paul gives
expression of this great principle of Christian
living when he wrote, "I live, yet not I, but Christ
lives in me" (Galatians 2:20). Yes, Paul is saying
the same Christ who was crucified, and rose from the
dead, "lives in me." That is what makes Christianity
different from all the religions of the world.
The true nature of our
Christian life is the unfolding of Christ's
character within the believer. It is a growing in
Christ–likeness. It is "Christ in you, the hope of
glory" (Colossians 1:27). The apostle Paul had in
mind a Christo–centric man, i. e. Christ enthroned
in the center of the believer's personality. Christ
in you as prophet, priest and king. The stress is on
our vital union with Christ. It is a life in
fellowship with Him.
We see this illustrated
in the relationship of Jesus with God the Father.
WITH THE FATHER
When Jesus came to this
earth, He became in the very fullest sense of the
term Man. He became man as God fully intended man to
be. There was no discrepancy between God’s will and
Jesus’ manner of life. Jesus came and lived daily in
an intimate relationship with the Father. He lived a
life in the way God originally intended man to live.
Although Jesus was
essentially one with God and in the form of God, He
did not think this quality with God was a thing to
be eagerly grasped and snatched away. He appeared in
human form and assumed the guise of a servant.
Everything Jesus did, every word He spoke, every
act, every thought He did as a man, even though He
was God (Phil. 2:5–8). He was God–man.
Jesus was totally,
unreservedly available to the Father.
He was completely
available all the time to God the Father. Therefore,
as a man, Jesus had available to Himself all the
inexhaustible provisions of the Father.
There was never anything
Jesus said, or did, that was not of the Father's
will. Jesus was the man God fully intended man to
be. Jesus said, "He who sent Me is with Me; He has
not left Me alone, for I always do the things that
are pleasing to Him" (John 8:29).
Jesus was available to
the Father for Him to do in and through Him He
desired. He did only that which pleased the Father.
Jesus was a man wholly available to the Father for
every moment of the thirty–three years He lived on
Moreover, Jesus was
in perfect obedience to the Father's will.
Jesus gave His total
being––body, mind, spirit––in unyielding dedication
to the Father's will. He was ever obedient to the
In obedience to the
Father's will Jesus died on the cross as a
substitute for my death penalty. "He [God] made Him
[Jesus Christ] who knew no sin to be sin on our
behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of
God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21). "The wages of sin
is death" (Romans 6:23a). He died my death so I
could be set free. Jesus was "obedient unto death,
even the death on the cross."
This is clearly the
preaching of the New Testament church. In the
greatest sermon Peter ever preached he declared this
great fact in Acts 2:22–24.
Men of Israel, listen to
these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to
you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which
God performed through Him in your midst, just as you
yourselves know—this Man, delivered over by the
predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you
nailed to a cross by the hands of godless men and
put Him to death. But God raised Him up again,
putting an end to the agony of death, since it was
impossible for Him to be held in its power.
God the Father declared
amen to the finished work of Christ by raising Him
from the dead. He is alive! Christ is alive! He is
risen from the dead!
Jesus was approved
by the Father.
He was "a man attested to
you by God." He was "accredited" to you by God. His
miracles verified who He was.
Furthermore, on three
different occasions history records God the Father
saying, "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well
pleased." Jesus was in perfect submission and in
total dependence upon the Father to accomplish total
obedience to the Father.
Everything Jesus did He
did through the eternal Spirit. He walked, He
talked, He moved and had His being in full
dependence upon the Holy Spirit. Everything Jesus
did was in and through God the Spirit. He was the
one man absolutely yielded to the Father to allow
the Father through the Spirit to will and do
whatever He chose to do in and through Him.
"And the Word became
flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory,
glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full
of grace and truth" (John 1:14).
What was the secret
of Jesus' effectiveness in doing the will of God?
The night before His
death Jesus was reassuring His disciples, preparing
them for His death.
Jesus said to him, "Have
I been so long with you, and yet you have not come
to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the
Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do
you not believe that I am in the Father, and the
Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do
not speak on My own initiative, but the Father
abiding in Me does His works. Believe Me that I am
in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise
believe because of the works themselves (John
14:9–11, author's italics).
What was the secret of
Jesus effectiveness in doing the will of God? He
states it twice. "I am in the Father, and the Father
in is Me." Did you catch the emphasis Jesus made?
"The Father abiding in Me does His works." Jesus
taught His disciples the same idea on another
Therefore Jesus answered
and was saying to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you,
the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is
something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the
Father does, these things the Son also does in like
manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him
all things that He Himself is doing; and the Father
will show Him greater works than these, so that you
will marvel. For just as the Father raises the dead
and gives them life, even so the Son also gives life
to whom He wishes (John 5:19–21).
Jesus simply did what the
Father was doing. He was not running independent of
the Father. He wasn't running ahead of the Father,
nor was He dragging His feet behind the Father.
Whatever the Father was doing, the Son also did. He
joined in with His Father to accomplish His eternal
What was Jesus
He was giving life. He
was giving eternal life.
How did He do that? He
made Himself available to His Father. “I and the
Father are one” (John 10:30). Everything the Father
was doing Jesus was doing on the earth. Everything
Jesus did was in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Major Ian Thomas
beautifully paraphrases Jesus' words. "I have
presented My body to the Father who indwells Me,
that He may do His works in My body; and My Father
does His works through His Spirit by whom He
indwells Me, and through whom I have offered Myself
without spot, faultlessly, to My father." (The
Saving Life of Christ, p. 147).
did was the Father doing it through Him.
"What I do, My Father
does! What I say, My Father says! What I am, My
Father is!" (Ibid, p. 147).
I like the way The
Amplified Bible captures the thought of Jesus in
John 6:57. "Just as the living Father sent Me, and I
live by (through, because of) the Father, even so
whoever continues to feed on Me––who takes Me for
his food and is nourished by Me––shall [in his turn]
live through and because of Me."
Just as Jesus has life in
the Father, so the believer has live in Jesus. Note
the abiding relationship Jesus has with the Father
and the believer with Jesus. Observe the intimate
love relationship between the Father, Son, Spirit
and the believer. The Father "abides" in the Son
(14:10), the Spirit "abides" on Jesus (1:32), and
believers "abides" in Jesus and He in them (6:56;
15:4). "Because I live you also shall live."
RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST
Jesus stresses the
same principle to His disciples.
"He who believes in Me
the works that I do shall he will do also." Just as
Jesus was busy doing what the Father was doing, He
says the believer is to busy Himself doing the same
thing. Jesus was obedient to the will of the Father.
We are, likewise to occupy ourselves with the
Father's will. Jesus was at the center of the
Father's will one day at a time, every day. When we
are at the center of the will of God every day we
cannot help but be at the center of His will all the
Truly, truly, I say to
you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he
will do also; and greater works than these he will
do; because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in
My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be
glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My
name, I will do it. If you love Me, you will keep My
commandments (John 14:12–15).
Jesus gives us His
kind of life.
"Truly, truly, I say to
you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent
Me, has eternal life, and does not come into
judgment, but has passed out of death into life"
(John 5:24). When do we get this eternal life? We
get it the moment we are born again. We have it now
if we are saved. He has already passed from the
realm of death to the realm of life (v. 24). He will
not face judgment in the future, because he has
already passed from death into life.
Our eternal life is God's
gift to us that we accept by faith. It is not
something achieved through self–effort. It does not
come by some spiritual exercise, but God's
self–revelation. God imparts this new life to us.
You don't go through some emotional exercise. You
make yourself available to Christ. "As many as are
led by the Spirit they are the sons of God."
Most assuredly, I am
saying to you, He who habitually hears my word and
is believing the One who sent me has life eternal,
and into judgment he does not come, but has been
permanently transferred out from the sphere of death
into the life. Most assuredly, I am saying to you,
There comes an hour and now is, when the dead shall
hear the voice of the Son of God, and those having
heard, shall live. For as the Father has life in
himself, so also He gave to the Son to be having
life in himself. And authority He gave Him to be
executing judgment because He is a son of man (John
5:24-27 Wuest Expanded).
Eternal life is that
quality of life that you possess right now, at this
very moment in your physical body because of the
spiritual birth that took place when you believed on
Christ. Christ is that life. Eternal life is not a
feeling, or emotional experience. It is not what you
get when you die and go to heaven. It is God's kind
of life. It began when you were born again
spiritually. You can have God's kind of life today.
If you have been born spiritually, you have it right
now. It is your life in Christ today.
Christ is formed in
The apostle Paul
described that life with these words. "Christ is
formed in you" (Galatians 4:14). He is "formed." The
word means to give outward expression of one's
inward character. It is a change from the inside
out. The Holy Spirit brings the inward change to a
person's life. It is the job of the Holy Spirit to
fashion Christ in the believer.
Our body is now the
temple of the Holy Spirit. God has chosen to indwell
our bodies (1 Corinthians 3:16-17; 6:19–20; 2
Corinthians 6:14–18). If you do not have the Holy
Spirit dwelling in you, you are dead spiritually. If
you have never been born again you do not have the
Holy Spirit living with in you (Romans 8:9). If you
have not the Holy Spirit, you do not have Christ.
Since you have eternal
life, you have Jesus Christ, and the life you
possess is of Him. You are now alive in Him. We who
were at one time dead in trespasses and sin have
been made alive in Christ (Ephesians 2:1, 5).
Christ is our life. The
apostle Paul was clear about this new life in
Christ. “When Christ, who is our life, is revealed,
then you also will be revealed with Him in glory”
Christ is the
believer's new environment.
Paul describes our
intimacy with Christ in the expression "in Christ."
It is more than a confession of faith. It is a
declaration that Jesus Christ is a living, present
Spirit, whose nature is the very nature of God and
He is now the environment of the believer.
Paul uses the expression
"in Christ," or its cognate expression "in the
Lord," "in Him," etc. 164 times. Jesus taught His
disciples "abide in Me, and I in you" (John 15:4).
On occasions Paul seems to use "in the Spirit"
almost interchangeably with "in Christ." It is the
Holy Spirit who makes Christ real to us. He mediates
Christ's gifts and presence to us. You are "in the
Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.
But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he
does not belong to Him" (Romans 8:9).
Christ is the Christian's
new environment. Paul sees the believer as living
and moving and having his being in a spiritual
environment that is the very breath of life. The
redeemed person has been placed in a totally
different sphere, the sphere of Christ. He has "made
us alive together with Christ" (Ephesians 2:5). He
who was "dead in trespasses and sins" has "raised us
up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly
places, in Christ Jesus" (v. 6).
The entire epistle of
Ephesians breathes this atmosphere of being "in
Christ." The believer has been transplanted into a
new soil and new climate, which is Christ. "To me to
live is Christ" (Philippians 1:21). Moffatt
translates, "Life means Christ to me." The
controlling and directing factor in his life is
Paul speaks of our normal
experience as "hidden with Christ in God"
(Colossians 3:3). It is a daily, ever renewed
communion with Christ. It is not something
transitory but abiding. This is eternal life.
Neither is Paul teaching
dissolution or suspension of the believer's
personality. Our personality does not cease to
exist. The man whom Christ indwells does not cease
to be himself. Indeed, the Christian experience
heightens every individual power you have. He sets
you free to let Christ live within you. "I live, yet
not I, but Christ lives in me." "The life I now live
in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God"
The indwelling of Christ
is anything but a blurring or obliterating of the
believer's personality. Every quality of the
personality is set free and lifted to new heights of
We have a vital
union with Christ in His death.
Paul stresses that we now
share in the experiences of Christ's death and
resurrection. We are united with Christ in His
death. To be "in Christ" is to identify with the
substitutionary death of Christ by faith. It was a
victorious death when Jesus shouted; "It is
finished." The curse of the Law no longer held Him
in its control.
The power of sin is
broken over the person who is one with Christ in His
death. At the cross God condemned sin in the flesh
(Rom. 8:3). Because the believer is united with
Christ in His death sin cannot control him any
longer. "There is therefore now no condemnation for
those who are in Christ" (8:1). There is a complete
break with sin. By being united with Christ in His
death the believer is pictured as being nailed to
the cross with Christ. Paul is bold when he tells us
to die to sin just as Christ died. Death is final,
and you have died with Him. Sin has no more claim
over the believer because the believer is legally
dead in Christ.
Paul tells us to "reckon"
ourselves to be dead unto sin (Rom. 6:11). Realize
what has happened at the cross. You are no longer
what you once were––you are dead to sin and its
consequences. There is now this impassable gulf as
wide and as deep as death between what you were in
trespasses and sins and what you are now in Christ.
If you have died with Christ then reckon yourself
dead because that is what you are. Therefore, become
in your daily practice what you are in Christ.
All of these verses speak
of our being dead in Christ (Colossians 3:8; 2:20; 2
Corinthians 5:14; Galatians 5:24; Philippians 3:10;
Galatians 2:20; 6:14).
The death of Christ on
the cross is all–sufficient. Our redemption is an
accomplished fact. Christ paid our debt in full when
He died on the cross for our sins.
James Stewart said, "With
Christ I have died, with Him my former self has been
crucified; but every day I live I must seek to
deepen my surrender, every day I would fain grow in
conformity to Christ." The idea of complete
Christ–likeness is far beyond me. I still fall short
in my daily practice of identification with Christ
in the death He died to sin. Paul admonishes us to
die to sin, to reckon ourselves dead and buried. It
is to be identified with Christ's attitude toward
sin. It is to oppose sin as He does. It is to judge
sin as God did at the cross.
"Therefore we have been
buried with Him through baptism into death, so that
as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory
of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of
life" (Romans 6:4).
We have a vital
union in our burial with Christ.
What a dynamic way the
apostle Paul brings out the finality of the break
with the old life that occurred when we were born
again. We are crucified, dead and buried with
Christ. We are dead to sin and the old life was
Baptism, in the moment of
immersion down under the water is a beautiful
picture of the old sin nature being dead and buried
in union with Christ. It pictures the reality of our
severance with the old life.
Our union with Christ is
an absolute radical transformation. We are dead and
We have a vital
union with Christ in His resurrection.
Paul gathers up this new
victory in Christ and calls it "life." The believer
enters a vital relationship to God and is "alive" to
This new daily life is
full of the romance and wonder of fellowship with
Christ. The carnal person is dead while he lives
(Romans 8:6). The spiritually alive person has the
life of Christ Himself (Colossians 3:4; 2
Corinthians 4:10; Romans 8:2; 6:4; 2 Corinthians
This is a totally
different life. Christ imparts a new supernatural
quality of life to the believer. Indeed, it is a new
creation. This new life bears the quality of
eternity. It is God's kind of life.
The new convert begins to
live in the sphere of the post resurrection life of
Christ. It is eternal life now. It is our present
possession in Christ. Death now has as little power
over the inner life of the believer as it has over
Christ. Colossians 2:12.
Christ's life is yours
now. You begin to live eternally now. The privilege
is yours now because you are in Christ. You are
risen with Him. You have passed out of the old
relation with sin and into the new relationship with
the Spirit. "Reckon yourselves alive unto God
through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:11).
The believer now brings
all his relationship and obligations to a new
reality (Colossians 3:1).
We want to obey Him
because we love Him. It becomes the passion of our
To be "in Christ" is to
be supplied with the power to live the Christian
life. He not only is the new environment, but all
the energy to empower the new life in Christ. "I can
do all things through Him [Christ] who strengthens
me" (Philippians 4:13). Since the new spiritual
environment is Christ, the soul draws its strength
for daily living from the constant supply of power
from the risen Christ (Colossians 3:1-4).
Does this abiding in
Christ mean we are now perfect? Does it mean all
struggling and striving against sin is over? No, but
we are to grow in Christ. Because of conversion, we
have entered the sphere of eternal life. The new
life in Christ is a progressive, growing in Him
We will not be perfect
until the day when this body is exchanged for the
new spiritual body when Christ comes for us. Then we
will experience the full liberty that will be ours
In our vital union with
Christ we have before us a taste of what we shall be
like when Christ comes.
Our vital union
with Christ looks beyond this present life.
All our experiences here
in Christ look forward to something more wonderful
and blessed when Christ returns. Our life in Christ
now causes us to yearn for a more intimate
relationship with Him.
We enjoy eternal life now
as a present possession, but one day we will be
freed from the shackles of this frail body and
experience a deeper intimacy with Christ.
A day will come when our
daily practice and walk with Christ will be flawless
and complete (1 John 3:1–3).
Our union with
Christ is a growing relationship.
"Christ in me" is Christ
bearing me along from within. Christ is the
motivating power that carries me on. Christ is the
one who gives my whole life a poise and spiritual
lift. He gives me the energy to keep on going when
my circumstances dictate my giving up. He gives our
burdens wings upon which to soar (Isa. 40:28-31).
"Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Colossians
1:27). To be "in Christ" is to have Christ within.
It is to be born along, the release and liberty,
life with an endless song in its heart. Our goal in
life is "to glorify and to enjoy Christ."
Paul sees our union with
Christ as a vital union with God. Romans 8:11
reminds us that to be united with the risen Christ
was to be united with the God who raised Him. "But
if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead
dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the
dead will also give life to your mortal bodies
through His Spirit who dwells in you." Colossians
2:12 tells us you are risen with Him through the
faith of the operation of God, who has raised Him
from the dead. Moreover, we are "hidden with God in
Christ" (Colossians 3:3).
"When the apostle speaks
of being ‘in Christ,’ of having ‘Christ in me,’ it
is nothing other than union with God that he is
experiencing. . . All whom Christ has truly
possessed have known beyond a doubt that it was God
who was possessing them. For the soul which is
united to Christ by faith is united to the living
God" (James Stewart).
It is this faith, utter
abandonment to God revealed in Christ, that begets
the deepest and most intimate of all personal
experiences, our union with Christ. It is not some
work that we do. It is God in His grace that
accomplishes this great feat. "You are all children
of God by faith in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:26).
Faith is the principle of union between the believer
and Christ. Christ is the sphere in which faith
lives, moves, grows and operates.
Our faith union is an
unconditional surrender to Christ. It is being
overpowered by Christ. We need a makeover of our
whole person and that is what He does. It includes
everything that enters into a vial personal
relationship with Christ. It is falling in love with
Christ. It is utter abandonment of self with an
overflowing love for Him. Only the risen “Christ in
you” can accomplish that radical change. He is alive
in you! And you are alive in Him!
What will happen when we
die? The apostle Paul wrote, to be "absent from the
body" and "present with the Lord" (2 Cor. 5:8). When
we leave this present physical body in death we go
to Christ. You go to be with Christ, whose
resurrection life imparted to you by the indwelling
Spirit of God you now enjoy.
We are now enjoying His
resurrection life. When Jesus comes we will be
"caught up together with them in the clouds to meet
the Lord in the air." We will go "to Him." It is
just a change in location. Our life in Christ will
continue; it will just be in a different location.
The eternal life that you now have that began when
you were born again is both of Him and to Him. Our
life in Christ does not stop; it just continues in
We live, serve, and have
our total being in Christ. He has His inheritance in
How do we live this
eternal life now?
We live it the same way
Jesus lived it when He was here in His incarnate
body. Jesus made Himself unreservedly available to
the Father. We make ourselves unreservedly available
Paul said we are "His
workmanship" (Ephesians 2:10), and His workmanship
can only be accomplished in the energy and power of
the One who indwells us now by His Spirit. You
cannot accomplish His workmanship in the carnal
mindset. It is hostile to the things of God. You can
accomplish His workmanship only as you abide in the
Jesus said of Himself, "I
can of mine own self do nothing" (John 5:19), and of
you He says in John 15:5, "without Me you can do
What can the missionary
or pastor accomplish without Him? Absolutely
nothing. What can you accomplish without Him?
Absolutely nothing. You and I cannot even live the
Christian life without Him.
Everything apart from
Christ profits nothing. "It is the Spirit who gives
life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I
have spoken to you are spirit and are life" (John
6:63). How tragic the thought, but we can spend a
whole lifetime serving God and doing nothing. That
is frightening. Why? Because we did it in our own
flesh and not in submission to Him.
"Truly, truly, I say to
you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he
will do also; and greater works than these he will
do; because I go to the Father" (John 14:12).
"For to me to live
is Christ" (Philippians 1:21).
Make yourself available
unreservedly to Christ and let Him live His life in
and through you to His glory. John 14:12–15
I assure you, most
solemnly I tell you, if any one steadfastly believes
in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that
I do; and he will do even greater things than these,
because I go to the Father. And I will do––I Myself
will grant––whatever you may ask in My name
[presenting all I AM] so that the Father may be
glorified and extolled in [through] the Son. [Yes] I
will grant--will do for you--whatever you shall ask
in My name [presenting all I AM]. If you [really]
love Me you will keep (obey) My commands.
This message has
addressed the need for those who know Jesus Christ
as their Savior to appropriate by faith the new life
they have in Him. It may be that you have never come
to the place of acknowledging your need of Jesus
Christ as your Savior. You can put your trust in
Jesus Christ as your personal Savior right now.
Confess to Him your need for Him to forgive you of
your sins and believe that He died in your place on
the Cross. Ask Him to be your Savior right now. If
