How Does Jesus Meet Your Greatest Need?

Jesus Is the Savior

God Has Sent for You God sent His Son to find, feed, and cure your sick, starving soul that was lost in sin. He became a man so that He could die in your place and give you a pardon. His name is Jesus, which means Savior. Only He can save you. Memorize this verse:

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
(Bible, Acts 4:12)

Jesus Shows You the Truth and the Way

Satan has blinded our minds with error and unbelief. We have wandered away from God and lost our way. The devil tries to make us doubt God's Word, power, wisdom, goodness, and love. Some people even doubt that there is a God.

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
(Bible, 2 Corinthians 4:4)

Satan deceives many people with false religions. Some pray to spirits or images.

And they exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
(Bible, Romans 1:23)

Satan lies to us about what is good for us and what is right or wrong. We go down the wrong road looking for happiness and find death instead.

Jesus, unlike Satan, came to find us and lead us back to God, to happiness, and eternal life. In Him and His teaching you will learn the truth and be free from unbelief and error. Memorize these verses:

Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
(Bible, John 14:6)

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.
(Bible, Luke 19:10)

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, 'I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
(Bible, John 8:12)

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
(Bible, John 8:32)

If anyone comes to God sincerely wanting to know the truth and willing to follow it, God will show it to him. Read the Bible and pray with an open mind; be willing to do what God wants.

If anyone chooses to do God's will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own.
(Bible, John 7:17)


Thank you, God, for sending Your Son Jesus to teach me the truth. Please show me the truth and help me to follow it, whatever it costs.
