Should I Find Jesus?

Should I find jesus

The question of whether or not to find Jesus is deeply personal and significant, and it can be approached from various perspectives within Christian theology. Here, we will explore this question primarily from a biblical standpoint, offering relevant Bible verses, historical examples, and key takeaways.

Biblical Perspective

  1. Seeking God: The Bible encourages seeking God with a sincere heart. A key verse is Jeremiah 29:13: “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” This verse suggests that finding God involves a heartfelt pursuit.
  2. The Role of Jesus: Jesus is central to Christian faith as the mediator between God and humanity. In John 14:6, Jesus says, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” This statement underscores the importance of Jesus in connecting with God.
  3. Transformation Through Christ: Encountering Jesus leads to a transformative experience. 2 Corinthians 5:17 states, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” This verse highlights the profound change that comes from accepting Jesus.

Historical Examples

  1. Apostle Paul: Originally Saul of Tarsus, Paul had a dramatic encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus (Acts 9). This encounter transformed him from a persecutor of Christians to one of the most influential apostles spreading the gospel.
  2. Martin Luther: The reformer’s spiritual journey led him to challenge the church’s teachings, emphasizing faith in Jesus alone for salvation, famously asserting, “faith alone” as the way to salvation, inspired by his study and understanding of the Bible.
  3. C.S. Lewis: Once an atheist, Lewis became one of the most renowned Christian apologists after a profound personal journey of faith, showing that intellectual and thoughtful engagement with the faith can lead to a strong conviction in Jesus.

Three Main Takeaways

  1. Personal Journey: Finding Jesus is a personal journey that requires openness to spiritual transformation and a sincere search for truth.
  2. Impact of Faith: Believing in Jesus can profoundly affect one’s life, offering new perspectives, moral guidance, and a sense of purpose.
  3. Community and Support: Engaging with a community of believers can provide support and deepen one’s understanding and faith in Jesus.

Deciding whether to find Jesus involves both a personal and communal exploration of faith, and it can have a transformative impact on one’s life, offering new beginnings and deep insights into spiritual and moral life.
