The Good News of Jesus
At Revive, we want to help you discover the life-giving good news of Jesus and take the next step to grow in your journey of faith – while connecting with others along the way.
Who is Jesus?
Jesus is the Son of God, fully man and fully God. The Bible is centered around His amazing, true story. He was born of a virgin 2,000 years ago in Israel in a town called Bethlehem. His sinless life marks the turning point in human history. He physically died on a Roman cross as the only perfect sacrifice for our sins. And then rose from the dead so that we could live for Him!
Sin is anything that goes against the character and nature of God. Every thought, spoken word, and performed action contrary to God’s moral law is considered sin.
Jesus paid the price we couldn’t pay for ourselves. All who believe in Him are made right with God. It’s about so much more than going to Heaven. It’s following a new way of life—living differently today because of the new life we have found in Jesus.
Would you like to meet Jesus?
Maybe you’re new to who Jesus is, or maybe you’ve grown up hearing a lot about Him but still haven’t quite figured out how and why it matters in your own life.
Jesus came to reconnect us to God, the Father – to fix the broken relationship caused by our selfish ways. And He came to show us a new way to do life with God through the truth of the Bible and the work of the Holy Spirit.
God isn’t trying to get us to live a life of trying to do good out of our own strength for the sake of moral duty. It is a life of total trust in Jesus as the rescuer and leader of our heart, mind, soul and strength.
Jesus invites us to live and love like He did. It’s a life marked by freedom, purpose, justice, adventure, courage, generosity, joy, faith, hope and love.
Jesus began a revolution and He is inviting you to carry forward His mission today.
Take your next step.
Right now – ask Jesus to make Himself real to you.
If you realize you have made choices against the moral code of God and believe Jesus died to reconnect you in your relationship with God pray the following prayer:
Dear Father in Heaven, I realize that I fallen short of your standard and need forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my wrongdoings. I am willing to turn my life around with Your help and lead the life You want me to lead.
I ask Jesus to come into my heart and I receive Him now as my personal Savior. With Your help, God I want to follow and obey Jesus as the Lord of my life. Please come into my life now.
Show your faith in Jesus right now. Start by letting another Christian know you have asked Jesus into your life. Don’t forget to let us know below – we want to celebrate with you!
