What if a man came to your town claiming to be a billionaire and is offering anyone who needs or really wants it a million pounds! It may seem very unlikely to be true but wouldn’t you kick yourself if he turned out to be genuine and you had missed the opportunity?
Isn’t a claim which could change your life if true worth investigating?
Surely the bigger and better the claim the more sense it makes to look into it to find out whether it is true or not.
No-one throughout history has made bigger and better claims than one man. He made claims about life, love, happiness, meaning, forgiveness, freedom, satisfaction, the world and eternity which if true will change everything for all of us!
The sheer size and appeal of his claims demands we investigate them before we decide what we make of them. Surely it is only rational to consider Jesus and his claims?
We need to make sure we investigate the claims for ourselves. This is too big a life issue to rely only on what we may have heard from other people, whether this is from parents, teachers, or TV etc. Please don’t dismiss Jesus because you already think you know what he is all about, when what you have heard may be very different from the reality. Have you ever really read and considered what he said for yourself?
My plea is please, please consider Jesus! Look into him and test what he said for yourself. There is too much at stake, to much to be potentially lost and gained. If we are not going to follow Jesus we need to be sure why!
What if Jesus was telling the truth? He is worth considering!
Five different ways you could start investigating Jesus are:
1) Come along to Alpha (a relaxed, fun, free event based around food set up to help people look into the life and claims of Jesus)
2) Come along to our Sunday meeting, or any of our other events
3) Read a gospel (Matthew, Mark, Luke or John). These are the four biographies of Jesus life from the Bible (we can send you one for free)
4) Ask Jesus to make himself known to you
5) Email, text or call with any questions or comments firstname.lastname@example.org 07525 611835
