There are three main reasons a person needs Jesus in their life. Although I can make a list a mile long, these three seem to be the most important key factors.
1. You need Jesus because you have a past. You can’t go back but He can. He knows everything you try to hide and He knows everything about you. Even when you think know one else knows, He does. He doesn’t want you to carry heartache, worry, pain or sickness around with you. The Bible says, “Jesus is the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.” He can walk into those places of sin and failure and wipe the slate clean. He is the only one who can give you a new beginning. He can help you forgive others and forgive yourself of your past. He can help you survive the past and look forward to your future.
2. You need Jesus because you need a friend. Jesus knows the best and the worst of you. He sees you who you are today, yesterday and what you will become. He believes the best for you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He will always be there for you. He will listen to you and talk with you. You can lean on his shoulder or crawl up in His lap. He is your Father, Savior, Friend, Redeemer, Healer, Salvation, and Life for eternity. Chat with Him daily, talk with Him, sing to Him, listen to His voice and find peace and rest. He is sitting right beside you right now, breathing life within your soul. Breathe in His Spirit and smile.
3. You need Jesus because He alone holds the future. Who else will you trust? No fortuneteller, physic, astrology, magic or Ouija board can predict your future. In His hands you are safe and secure, today, tomorrow and for all eternity. He alone can prosper us mentally, physically, emotionally and financially. He has a place prepared for you. He has place to call home, where you will spend eternity with Him. He will wipe every tear from your eyes, every ache and pain from your body and heartache you have ever experienced. He desires to take us to a place of worship, glory and spiritual union with Him.
Jesus desires to have a relationship with you and give you a full life of joy and purpose. You need Him in your life. Will you accept these three reasons?
