The Most Unique Person
Jesus Christ is often compared to other prophets and teachers, but He is the most
unique person to ever live. Everything from His birth to after His death was
miraculous and set Him apart from everyone else. Jesus was born by a virgin -- a
natural impossibility. Before His mother Mary was married, she was told by an angel
she would give birth to the Son of God. When she asked him how this could be, he
answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will
overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the
Son of God." Just as promised, the virgin Mary gave birth to Jesus Christ, the most
incredible person to ever have lived.

An Amazing Life
Jesus' life was just as amazing as His birth. At 30 years old, He went out into the
cities of Israel and began teaching and healing people. The Bible records that He was
different from other preachers, for "the people were astonished at His teaching, for
He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes." Likewise, there was
no disease too great for His power. It says, "They brought to Him all sick people who
were afflicted with various diseases and torments. and He healed them." Threatened by
His fame and authority, the political and religious authorities conspired to kill
Him.

A Sudden Death
His death had been predicted over a thousand years before. The prophet Isaiah wrote
of Jesus, "He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, the
chastisement for our peace was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed." Jesus
would pay the penalty for our sins so that we could be forgiven and have eternal
life. Just as had been predicted, Jesus was given the most brutal death sentence of
that day for maintaining that He was the Son of God. While hanging on a wooden cross
with spikes through His hands and feet, He prayed, "Father, forgive them, for they
know not what they do." Jesus had power to come down from the cross, but He chose to
sacrifice His life for others.

The Promise is for You
Just as promised, God raised His Son Jesus back to life -- eternal life -- on the
third day after His burial. He was seen by His closest friends and over 500 of His
followers before He went up into heaven before their very eyes. After His
resurrection, his close friend Peter told a great crowd to repent from their sins and
believe in Jesus Christ to be saved, "for the promise is to you and to your children,
and to all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call." This promise is
for you! There are many religions and prophets, but no one but Jesus Christ offers
complete forgiveness from your sins and eternal life with God. He has already died
for your sins; now you must put your faith in Him. "For if you confess with your
mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved." If you believe in Jesus, you can pray a prayer like this right
now and receive the gift of eternal life.

Receive Him Now
"Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God and the Savior of the world. Thank you for
coming to Earth and dying so that I could have eternal life. Please forgive all my
sins. I am going to follow You with my life now. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit
and direct my steps. In Jesus' name, Amen."
