Who is Jesus?

Who is Jesus?

We  are excited to tell you about the hope and love of Jesus!  Jesus is the  center of everything we do and believe in at The Linked Church. Here are some thoughts from Dr. Billy Graham about salvation.

  • First, we all are sinners and stand under the judgment of God.
  • Second,  God loves us, and Jesus came to make forgiveness and salvation  possible. He died on the cross as the complete sacrifice for our sins.  He took on Himself the judgment that we deserve.
  • Third, God in His grace offers us the gift of eternal life. But like any gift, it becomes ours ONLY when we respond and receive it.
  • Fourth,  salvation is intimately linked to Jesus and the cross. Jesus’ virgin  birth, by the miraculous intervention of the Holy Spirit, meant that He  did not inherit a sinful human nature like we did. Neither did Jesus  commit any sin during His lifetime. Jesus became the only perfect Man,  and as such, He was uniquely qualified to put into action God’s plan of  salvation for mankind.

    On that cross, Jesus took the punishment of our sin. He was our  Substitute. He suffered the judgment and condemnation of death that our  sinful nature and deeds deserve.
  • Finally,  faith is essential for salvation. But, there are various kinds of  beliefs or faith, and not all are linked to salvation. In the New  Testament, faith means more than intellectual belief. It involves trust  and commitment. I may say that I believe a bridge will hold my weight.  But I really believe it only when I commit myself to it and walk across  it. Salvation faith involves an act of commitment and trust, in which  you commit your  life to Jesus Christ and trust Him alone as your Savior  and Lord.

Salvation Prayer:

Committing  your life to Jesus is a personal and individual decision. By praying a  prayer like this, you are inviting Jesus into your life and releasing  your cares and worries to Him.

"Jesus,  right now, I ask you to become Lord of my life. You are my Savior and I  thank You for the sacrifice You made on the cross. I receive Your grace  and confidently believe that my life is forever changed.

Jesus,  help me to live for You. My heart and my life are open to what You have  for me. I want to know Your ways and love people as You love me.  Everything within me is submitted to You. Thank You for Your mercy,  hope, and unfailing love.

In Your name I pray, Amen."
