Your Friends Need the Lord

Every person you meet or know needs the Lord for many reasons. Those who know the Lord cannot imagine life without Him. Jesus said, “apart from Me, you can do nothing” (John 15:5). Here are some reasons why everyone needs the Lord.

You and your friends need a Savior (Matthew 1:21).

Sin is the universal problem of all men (Romans 3:10,23; 1 John 1:8,10). Not only do we need our personal sins washed away, we also need a new and better life. Jesus came to deliver us out of this present evil age (Galatians 1:4) and to give us new and better lives. In Christ we become “new creatures” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

God’s plan in Christ is that “you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth” (Ephesians 4:22-24).

Without Jesus we have no hope of life beyond this life. He is the resurrection and the life (John 11:25-26). Jesus said, “everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die.”

Without Jesus we would stumble around in intellectual darkness, not having the Way, the Truth, or the Life (John 14:6). Jesus gave us an example, so that we can follow in his steps (1 Peter 2:21).

Without Jesus we would never fully know what it means to love (1 John 4:7-11). Because of him, we know that we are loved and how to love others. Thank God for Jesus.
