Who is this Jesus?
The gospel tells us that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah:
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. (John.1:12.)
This is a great verse. Jesus is the Messiah who brings people to God. He is the Anointed One through whom sinners become children of God – because they believe in him. This applies to ALL people, no matter who they are, no matter where they come from, no matter what their past may have been. All who respond positively to Jesus, all who give their lives to him, all who believe in him, to all those he gives the right to become children of God. This is a complete transformation which happens when people respond to Jesus and believe in him. Jesus alone has the power to make them children of God. You may want to have some positive change in your life. This is where it starts!
