ABOUT JESUS (and you)

 

IN OUR PART of the world, lots of people wear cowboy boots.  People tend to be tough, proud, and self-sufficient.  We like to think that we can pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps, and that other people should too.


But it doesn’t work that way.  The truth is that we are all broken people.  Everybody.  We were all born into a world of sin, we are all stained by that, and we have all added to the world sins of our own.


And sin comes with a price tag.  Not only are we broken people in a broken world, we are people separated from God.  And no matter how hard we try we can’t fix it.


And that is where Jesus comes in.  In addition to being God, Jesus is the toughest guy who ever lived.  His response to the fact that the whole world, including us, had sinned against Him was to come and do something about it.  But instead of coming in judgement like we might expect, He came and died for our sins.  He paid the price for our sins with His own blood so that everybody who turns to Him in faith can be saved from their sins both now and forever.  And if you were the only person on earth who had ever sinned against God, He loves you so much that He would have come and died just for you.


Then, three days later, Jesus rose from His grave, proving to the world that everything that the Bible had said about Him for 1,000 years before He came, and everything He said about Himself, is true.


After a while, He ascended into Heaven, then sent the Holy Spirit to start the church as we know it, and His church continues on to this day serving Him, calling others to faith in Him, and waiting for the day that He comes back.


If you’re tired of trying and failing to pull yourself up by your bootstraps, maybe its time to grab hold of Jesus instead.
