Who Is Jesus?
During His days on earth and throughout the centuries following, opinions about Jesus have varied greatly. Jewish dignitaries of His day saw Him as a deceiver. Roman officials saw Him as a threat to civil peace. His half brothers heckled Him. One of His followers betrayed Him. Another denied Him. Many abandoned Him. Although He spoke the truth, most did not have ears to hear. Nevertheless, during His short time on earth, He spoke clearly as to who He was, where He was from, why He was here … and earth has never been the same. Nor is anyone the same, anyone in whom Jesus comes to dwell.
Consequently, in your own lifetime, you will also have to respond to two crucial questions about Jesus: First, “Do you believe He is God?” and second, “What will you do with Him?” In truth, Jesus stated clearly to His followers …
“You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins.” (John 8:23-24)
At the end of the day, one question remains …
Where will you decide to spend eternity?
Believe it or not, that is a decision we CAN make for our lives.

One of the most beloved Scriptures in the Bible tells us how we can spend eternity in heaven with God. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). 1 John 5:13 also assures us that we can know where we will spend eternity; “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know [for certain] that you have eternal life.”
John 3:1-21 tells us more about the life God offers to us both now and for eternity.
- It comes only through spiritual birth (v. 3).
- It is invisible, as are many of its effects (vv. 7-8).
- It comes through Jesus alone (vv. 13-15).
- It is eternal (v. 16).
- It depends on belief and trust in Jesus Christ alone (vv. 17-21).
