Why should Jesus’ claim to be God’s Son matter today?
1. If Jesus is the Son of God, his teachings are more than just good ideas from a wise teacher; they are divine insights on which I can build my life.
2. If Jesus sets a moral standard, I have an unwavering foundation for my choices and decisions rather than basing them on self-centeredness.
3. If Jesus did rise from the dead, he's still alive today and available for me to encounter on a personal basis.
4. If Jesus conquered death, he can open the door of eternal life for me.
5. If Jesus has divine power, he has the supernatural ability to guide me, help me, and transform me as I follow him.
6. If Jesus personally knows the pain of loss and suffering, he can comfort and encourage me in the midst of the turbulence in my world.
7. If Jesus loves me as he says, he has my best interests at heart. That means I have nothing to lose and everything to gain by committing to him.
8. If Jesus is who he claims to be, then as my Creator he rightfully deserves my allegiance, obedience, and worship.
