Do you know Him by any of these names? If your answer is no, allow me to introduce Christ. He is the only Begotten Son of God. He was born of a virgin and raised in Nazareth. He began his ministry, and called to follow Him twelve men. Maybe you’ve heard of some of them? There were Peter, James, John, Timothy, Matthew, Andrew Thaddeus, Thomas, Barthlolomew, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon - and you’ve most certainly of Judas, who betrayed Jesus with a kiss.

Jesus died on the cross of Calvary. Why you ask? Because He loves you! Before you were born, he knitted you in your mother’s womb. Jeremiah 1:5 He knew as He created you, that you would sin against Him. Therefore, the only remedy was the shedding of His blood to make you whiter than snow. He loves you so much, and wants you to spend eternity with Him.

So, do you want to know Him? Ok! All you need to do is ask Him to forgive you of your sins, and to come live in your heart. Once you have, He will never leave you. When you die, you will live eternally with Him. Go ahead, Beloved, He is waiting with His arms open wide. He loves you.

One of His
