Jesus Is The Way To God

Discover Hope By Finding Jesus


I do believe there is hope for life. I believe that you can have a life of hope, joy, peace, purpose and glory. That hope is found in God. He made you, loves you, and wants the best for you…both now and forever. And to make sure you found your way to him, God did an extraordinary thing: He sent his Son Jesus to show you the way. Jesus himself said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

Why do we need help to get to God? It is because we live in a world that is in conflict. I believe there is evil in this world and that it is in conflict with good. This evil is called sin and it is rebellion against God. I want to believe that I am not a bad person and that I can make sense of my life. But deep in my heart I know I am not good enough, or powerful enough to make sense of my world and my life. I know I have done things I shouldn’t have, and not done things I should have. I want to know the God who is perfect, who made this world, and who can make sense of my life. But I’m not perfect…better than some, worse than others. So who am I to ask anything of God? I know my life must be offensive to God. And I don’t know how to fix it.

That is why God sent me Jesus, his perfect Son. He told me the story of his Son in a book so I could know about him for myself. I am convinced that the book called the Bible really is the Word of God, and it is where the good news about Jesus is found. The good news that God’s own Son was born into this messed-up world, that he lived like we live, and that he let himself die for my mistakes…for my sin. He paid a price for me so I could face God without the shame and guilt of my sin. Jesus models how to live a God designed and directed life in this world.

Jesus is the way back to God. He is the answer, the door, the life, and the way to the God who offers hope. Through Jesus I have found meaning, joy, peace, and purpose in my life. Because of what he did, I believe I can live forever with God. I believe that because the good news about Jesus is not just that he died for my sins. It is also that God raised him from the dead. Now that makes sense to me. That God would send his Son to this earth, he would show me how to live, he would die for my sins, and then that God would raise him from the dead.

It makes more sense to me than anything else in this world. So if you want to learn more about Jesus, look at the additional resources on this page. If you want to move along the path and see how to make a life of hope real, click on Continue. Or let me and the Hope for Life team hear from you.
