Do you hurt? Is your heart broken? Do you ache?
Jesus said that he came for the hurting and weary. Jesus said that he came to 'seek and save the lost.' (Luke 19:10) Are you lost?
Jesus said that he came to gather you in his arms. (Matthew 23:37) Do you need his embrace today? Jesus said that he came to forgive. (John 8:11) Do you need forgiveness? Jesus said that he came to heal the broken heart. (Mt 12:20) Does your broken heart need God's healing?
Jesus' name actually means, 'God with us.' (Mt 1:23) Do you need to feel God with you? Jesus came not to bring us more 'words', but to bring us power to change. (1 Cor 4:20) Do you need power to change today? Do you need power to change your own heart, soul, and your life path, your job, your relationships, your legacy?
If you die with Jesus today, you will rise with Jesus today - into a 'new you'! Do you need a new start?
Jesus said if we repent of our sin - that is, if we actually take action, turn away from it, throw it out, cut it off, drop the call... - and if we believe in him, we will be saved! We will in that moment pass through the 'door of salvation' into a new life.
'Jesus said, 'I am the door, and anyone who enters through me will be saved!' (John 10:9)
