Who Is Jesus and Why Is He Important?
You might have come to this website as someone who isn’t a Christian and doesn’t know a whole lot about Jesus or God or Christianity. So what’s it all about?
We could answer that question in so many ways, because it covers so many things, but here’s some of the good news of the Christian faith…
First of all, it really is good news! It is all about how good God is, and how much he loves us.
God is sometimes portrayed by people as judgemental, distant and angry, but Jesus tells us that God is full of love for all people.
Jesus also tells us that God wants us to know him, and as we get to know him, our lives will be turned around for the better.
We can find peace, joy, love any many blessings from the knowledge that we are made by him, in his image.
But sometimes we find ourselves distant from God, in lives which are broken. The good news is that God doesn’t want us to stay that way!
We know this because God sent his son, Jesus, into the world to save us from all the brokenness in our lives.
Jesus came so that we can know God, and he even died to deal with all the things that are wrong in our lives, and to give us new life.
The Bible says that ‘God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.’
That’s God’s plan for you! That you have eternal, abundant, full life, through Jesus.
So What Do I Have to Do?
To receive that new life, you simply have to trust in Jesus and choose to follow him.
We can find out more about Jesus through the Bible, through coming to church and meeting with other Christians – all of us at Heeley church are still learning more each day.
So why not come and find out more? Come to Heeley Parish Church and meet people who know Jesus, who follow him, and whose lives are being transformed by his love.
