Lesson 6: Who is Jesus?

Introduction

God wants to have a relationship with you. Ask him to speak to you through the lives and teaching of the ancient prophets. God cares for you. Tell him your concerns and thank him for his blessings. If you are meeting in a small group, share your needs with one another, and ask God to work in your lives.

Who is Jesus?

He is the forgiver of your sins and the Savior of the world. Enjoy.

Respond

There is a verse from the Bible I would like to share with you. “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).  After watching all these videos, its hard to deny the power Jesus possesses. He has the ability to do everything that God himself can do.   Jesus is God. He came to save us from our sins.  Praise God for this.

God wants to restore your relationship with Him. He wants you to live with Him forever in the spiritual kingdom of Christ. He wants you to become His child. It is a gift from God for you. There is only one way for you to make right the relationship with God. You must accept Christ’s gift who died for your sins. You receive this gift by doing two things:

  1. Repent of your sins – You must ask God for forgiveness of your sins based on Christ’s death for your sins.
  2. Trust in Jesus Christ – You must accept by faith Christ’s sacrifice and make God King of your life. You must choose to follow Him the rest of your life.

Will you accept this gift to restore your relationship with God right now? Will you do these two things – repent and believe?
