This book will be of no benefit to you, unless you are God’s child. But wait. Being born into God’s family is simple. It’s like drinking a cup of water when you are thirsty (John 4:14). That’s good news! It’s easy because the means for your spiritual birth has already been provided through the sacrificial death of His uniquely born One—Jesus Christ. You can be born again right now, by wholeheartedly accepting the message of the gospel to be true. The apostle Paul summarized the gospel: “Christ died for our sins according to Scriptures…He was buried…and …was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Cor. 15:3-4).
Jesus Christ is risen and alive. The empty tomb was verified by His disciples’ undeniable testimony of His resurrection!
Jesus is who He claimed to be—the Son of God, who came in the flesh to save you. Imagine, Isaiah the Prophet prophesied the birth of Christ seven hundred years before it occurred (Isa. 7:14). The angel confirmed Isaiah’s prophecy: “She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins” (Matt. 1:21).
Jesus Christ made a sobering claim: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6). There’s no other way to be born again; He’s the only way to heaven. There is no other.
The apostle John concludes, “these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31). You may pause and put your trust in Christ alone and be eternally saved. “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). If you have believed, read on.
