How can I meet Jesus today?
Jesus met a woman at a well. She was busy with her everyday tasks. Suddenly this Stranger asks her: “Please, give me some water to drink”. This encounter changed het life (John 4).
We can meet Jesus, today, by reading this message. He speaks and reaches out to billions of people all over the world. And you and I can meet this Stranger by believing in Him and trusting his words. He said that his words will last forever. Why? Because He will be with us till the end of time.
No other person ever could make such a claim. No prophet, no good man, no rich or influential man. Only Jesus could, because He triumphed over death. He is the Risen and living Lord of life. We can only confess our sins and ask his forgiveness, and all our sins will be pardoned. He gives us new hope, purpose in life, and joy. He restores our relationships and helps us to live according to God’s will.
When we accept Him as Lord and Saviour, He introduces us to His Father and fills us with His Holy Spirit.
That means that we become part of His life, and part of His earthly family. It is so important to become part of a local group of Christians, because we are the people of God, the body of Jesus Christ and the Temple of His Spirit. The churches are varied and many, but those who confess that Jesus is the Lord, and adhere to the teachings of the Scriptures, are part of God’s family.
God is good. We can trust Him with our future.
Pray with me this simple prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ,
I believe your promises.
I believe that You give forgiveness, joy and peace.
Please forgive all my sins and create in me a new spirit
so that I may know for certain that I am a child of God.
Teach me your ways and to love God with all my heart,
soul and mind and to love my neighbour as I love myself.
