What’s the big deal about Jesus?
Every one of us struggles to find purpose, answers, and help. Some days we just want to keep our heads above water—take care of the kids, pay the bills, and make ends meet. We all want to feel we have what it takes.
But we also have deeper questions. Why am I here? Is this all there is? Who am I? What happens when I die?
Jesus matters because He came to answer our deepest questions. He came to give us purpose for living now and settle the question of where we’ll spend eternity.
Jesus is the forgiver of our sins and leader of our lives!
God has a plan for our lives and yet many of our choices and the choices of others have led us away from Him and His plan. Thankfully, God has sent Jesus to live the life we should have lived and to die the death that we deserved to die. Jesus is the substitute who paid the price for our rebellion. God knows that we need help and that is why He sent Jesus.
You don’t have to measure up to some impossible religious standard to know God—you can’t, only Jesus can. Jesus brings meaning and purpose to all the struggles you’re facing. You don’t have to be good enough, clean up your act, or follow some super-spiritual checklist.
