In order to go to Heaven we must believe in and trust Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. Heaven sounds like such a wonderful and glorious place. Love beauty,fairness,justice and all of the wonderful things life has to offer. If life holds these things, I know Heaven must be a million times better. It is a place I want to spend Eternity in. I also want to see Jesus face to face and,thank Him for what He did for me.Just to be in His presence and Love on Him,worship and praise Him.......forever.

The Lord Jesus Christ's words are always true, dependable, saves whoever follows them from all worldly fears. I thank Him especially for His word in John 14: 21 where He promised to manifest Himself to whoever keeps His commandments. I have tried it(not perfectly though) and He has really manifested Himself to me uncountable times, and I am really happy for this. He is the most faithful, loving being that i know.

When I accepted Jesus as my Savior my life changed so much that I was completely convinced that it was He who made this possible. I was saved by God's grace but it was my faith in Jesus that caused me to be born again and sealed with the Holy Spirit. My old sinful ways and habits slowly drifted out of my life and were replaced with new ways and priorities. I pray every day for God to help me be a better son and witness. My family and friends know who I used to be and for 25 years they have watched me change and they know the reasons. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. AMEN!
---Bob on 6/11/09|
I believe in Jesus because he lives his Life in me. I am a living Sacrifice and Jesus lives in me By the Holy Spirit of God. I am not of this world, I am translated out of the darkness and I live in the kingdom of God. I have power over sin by the Holy Spirit, I hear his voice continually in my heart, encouraging me giving me words of life, What ever I ask of
him he always answers, he always does what is good for me. And I am glad and blessed by his presence. Satan has tried to kill me so many times but Jesus came to my rescue because he was living in me and was close at hand. That is why I believe in Jesus.
---Exzucuh on 6/10/09|
I believe in Jesus because the Bible talks about Him, and his first followers died for believing in Him, and because I have come to know Him.
---Ted on 6/10/09|
Believe in Jesus because his Father, Jehovah instructs his followers to listen to him: "This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved, listen to him." Mt.17:5.
Also: "For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) Salvation from Jehovah is only possible through Jesus Christ. His death on a torture stake provides the basis for eternal salvation.
---David8318 on 6/2/09|
I believe in Jesus, my Saviour and my God, because of the truth of the Bible, God's Word. The deeper I dig and search, the more I'm convinced of my salvation through Christ.
John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing ye might have life through his name.
2 Corinthians 4:13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken, we also believe, and therefore speak,
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
---Michael on 6/1/09|
Jesus has proven he is the only real God.
---Eloy on 4/17/09|
I believe in Jesus because he came to this world in love in order to save the whole human race. And he will accomplish that task. God be with you all!
---JohnnyB on 4/16/09|
To be totally honest I believe in Jesus because when I die I want to go to heaven.
---sue on 4/16/09|
Because He died for my sins. He is the way to eternal life. No one comes to the Father except by Him.
---Amanda on 4/16/09|
There is no choice but to believe in the validity of Jesus. You believe in atoms, molecules, air and yet you don't see those. Just because there is no visible viewing does not mean that same does not exist. Personally, my individual religious experience has led me to have no doubt whatsoever in this regard. From normal daily events, to those miracles which occur -the greatest of which is ever daily improving hearing - which gives more more now than when I was born - to those brushes with the supernatural - only being able to open doors through prayer (unlocked otherwise) and encountering demon possessed people to a scene or two from the Amityville horror house & overcoming same makes me a firm believer.
---Veronica on 1/1/09|
There are so many reasons I believe in God. To begin with: the thousands of people who have crossed my path during my life (including all of you on this blog), events and situations in which I alone could not have accomplished, but with the help from God only (from the time I was eight months old to the present), the rewards when I was good and the punishments I received (God truly is a good and just father), The places the Lord guided me to throughout North America including the very first destination of my year and a half trip as a hitchhiker in the 1970s. I didn't know exactly why I hitchhiked from Los Angeles to Bradenton Florida to see my mom. It was a heart wrenching experience and a comfort.
Thank you Lord for everything.
---Steveng on 12/17/08|
Yes. He has given up his life for me. He is the only way to God. God said, THIS IS MY BELOVED SON IN WHOM I WELL PLEASE, LISTEN TO HIM.
---Toni on 12/17/08|
Why I believe in Jesus. I went to visit my parents at their home and while there some Chinese Christians, came to pray for my father who was ill and held an impromptu Christian meeting with music and testimonies, inviting me and other neighbors and friends.While these Chinese Christians were testifying about the goodness of God and love of Jesus , I came under conviction of sin, righteousness and judgement to come, and called out for help. He was there all the time waiting for me to realize I needed a Savior. The Burden of sin rolled off me as I repented towards God and placed my faith in Jesus as my Savior.> This was the start of a 30 year walk with the Lord. georg8464
---georg8464 on 12/14/08|
Love and obedience. Christ is my Maker and my God, pure unadulterated love in the flesh: and my heart went out to Innocent Christ and embraced his life and all that he is. Christ is the one and only absolute Salvation for mankind, manifestedly changing the soul and proven to be truth and worthy of all worship and acceptation: all else, every single religion in the world is manifestedly proven to be false and idolatrous and antiChrist, and will not and cannot save any one. Jesus says and proves, "I am The way, The truth, and The life: no human comes to the Father, except by me. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers. I am from above, I am not of this world. If you all believe not that I AM, you all will die in your sins."
---Eloy on 12/13/08|
because he died for us, and he is the creator,stand blessed.
---ken on 12/12/08|
Why I believe in Jesus is summed up by what the other Frances franc4747 said below. Jesus comes through for everyone (who calls on him in earnest). What I mean is that Jesus did not come to start a religion, which I mistakenly thought and said earlier, Jesus, as the Son of God just came to reveal himself to us (mankind). He came to save all men from their sins. Those who are not against Jesus, when they die they can count on Jesus to be there for them. In life, they can count on God to be on their side.
---frances008 on 12/10/08|
I believe in Jesus Christ because he is the Alpha and Omega, our intermediary between us and God. He who die on the cross because of our sin for our eternal salvation. Jesus Chirist the son of God is our saviour and many more attributes which makes me to believe in HIM.
---IDOWU on 12/10/08|
I beleive in Jesus because there must have been the beginning of things and I have proven personally that HE does exists thru 58 years of dealing with HIM. Besides, I had a terminal illness over 50years and without any medication or help, Jesus healed me from 1998-2008 of ALL of it, I was bedridden incidentally for 15 of those years waiting to die. I got innumerable healings from JEsus in a church I attended from time to time during the years 1998-2001
---Trisha on 12/9/08|
Well the book was written many years after the man called jesus lived but as with most stories from that time they are not to hard to understand and in there day were as good as newspapers and the inter net are today it might not have been just 1 man but several but when put together as well asthe bible you find it hard not to believe and if ever you are alone you can feel the presents of something and you can talk to him and feel safe so yes I do believe but not as the end all I believe because I want to not because i"m told to ?
---niall on 12/9/08|
Because he exists, and this is true, without the shadow of a doubt. When an individual breathes air, he does not question whether or not exists, but knows that it exists based upon empirical evidence. The air is not visible, but its effects endure without a shadow of a doubt. There is a question for all of those who have not become familiar with Jesus, but after forty years of having evidence provided to me all of my life, too long to go into, and constant companionship - I wondered why I was never lonely or had any sort of concern, whatever circumstance there was - he is as real as you are.
---veron6657 on 12/9/08|
I believe in Jesus because he is my Lord and savior. I believe we all have a purpose on this earth and that purpose is through Jesus Christ, and its the more reason he died on the cross.
---Ankunda on 12/8/08|
i believe in Him because he has given us life without asking for it.That demonstrates that he is love and merciful and that all gives me the reason to believe in Him
---Tapologo on 12/8/08|
Jesus is our hope of entering the Kingdom of God as He has bought and Paid for each and everyone of us. You simply must believe that Jesus is Lord and confess with your mouth. Then believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and thou shall be saved. You must be Born Again as the Lord said. I am the way the truth and the life no man can come unto the Father except by Jesus. All will bow and everyone will confess that Jesus is Lord. I recommend you do it know. The Holy Spirit has opened my eyes so that I may believe. I love him so much and thank him for forgiving me of my sins. I have much to be thankful for
---Robert on 12/7/08|
The Holy Ghost imputed it upon me when I was a Littleboy and the shame of my unGodly life convicted me down to my very Soul and led me to repentance at the foot of the Cross and was washed by his Blood...
I've eaten and become fat on the Flesh & Blood of our Lord and have had my fill and my cup overfloweth with the Love of God.
I've tasted the sincere milk of the Lord and the sweetness thereof.
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 12/6/08|
how much time do you have? i believe in Him because i am alive today and i have all my family in health, i have a place to live with money in the bank i have a job, he shows me His love because i am chosen by Him for this hour, many are called but few a re chosen. there are not enough words to expain why i belive in Him, i am not ignorant.
---betty on 12/6/08|
Jesus helped me out a lot when I was in the hospital. Now when I was in the hospital, I was praying to Jesus. I remember that. When I was getting my hips done, He came through fro me. I think He comes through for everybody, really.
---Frances_franc4747 on 12/5/08|
Who else do you know that can heal people by the touch of a hand, who is with us always and heals us when we are sick. There has been only one man born to this Earth and that man is Jesus Christ without Him we are lost and hopeless with Him we are happy and forgiving. I take Jesus any day will you?
---cathy6986 on 12/5/08|
I believe in Jesus for a diffirent reason than many.I was raised to believe He was a prophet,a wayshower and then when 10 years old I dreamed of Him and in the dream He touched me and told me I didn't have to fear Him and I recognized instantly that He was God.In other words I had a supernatural revelation.I started a Baptist Sunday school at age 14 and began to learn a lot of the truth.
---shirley on 12/5/08|
It's simple why I believe. The historical facts testify to his life. The New Testament has proven to be historically accurate, regardless of the skeptical arguments. We see clear cut signs pointing to his second coming, proving he's been here before. So history and prophecy, for the truly openminded person, point to his existence and divinity.
---Mark on 12/5/08|
Yes, I believe. It is better to believe and be wrong than not to believe and burn forever. I love my savior.
---andrea on 12/5/08|
I believe in Jesus, because He died for my sins.
---Amanda on 12/5/08|
Why wouldn't I, do you? I was raised to beleive in Our Lord Jesus Christ, what would lifes purpose be, if I didn't? It's the only thing that makes since, and I have the faith to not just beleive in his word, but that one day I will join "HIM" in everlasthing life, in Heaven.
I scored 92%
---Vera3557 on 12/5/08|
I've known YHWH my whole life. Spent a better part of my teen and early adult life hating Him. But I've usually been able to recognize His Divine Providence in many areas of my forgiven existence.
---Marva3859 on 12/5/08|
because he is the way the trueth and the life
---joyce on 12/5/08|
I believe in jesus because i feel his love all around me,i feel his pain when i sin,i feel his strength when i pray,i feel his presence when i worship and i believe because the bible tells me so.
---Shara4387 on 12/5/08|
To Whosoever has an ear to hear?
When the Word of the Lord touches our hearts, I liken it to 'returning to the land of the living after dieing, do to being struck by lighting'. Upon which we really know how BLESSED we truly are to be alive with the gift of eternal life!!
THERE'S NO DENYING that we're forever changed nor would we want to by going back the evils of sin.
Our hearts are opened to the 'truth of the Spirit', and although the darkness still abide all around us, our only desire is to strive with the guidance of the light to be perfect by diligently enduring in the Word of the Lord through seeking to share by faith the Good News which is the Loving Word of Eternal Salvation from our Heavenly Father's Kingdom.
---Shawn_M.T. on 12/5/08|
He's the way,the truth and the life.
---ashley on 12/5/08|
I believe on Jesus christ because he answers my requests.And also he delivered himself on the cross for me.
---Julius on 12/5/08|
When I look around me, how could I NOT believe in Jesus? It wasn't by "accident" that I am here, and it is only because of Jesus's intercession that I am still here, as I should have been dead several times over! I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that He loves me, and He knows I love Him!
---Sally on 12/4/08|
I believe in Jesus because He believed in me first. He called me to His presence and made me His sheep. He is alive and talks to His people.
---Miriam on 12/4/08|
i belive in Jesus coz he is the son of God,he has the power to heal us and he is ever present at all times and he died for my sinsb
---mwaba_beatrice on 12/4/08|
I was told by my daddy that Jesus die for me. I also read it in the Bible that He is the definition of Love.I believe Him because he can not lie
---Mark on 12/4/08|
Because I saw much to admire and respect in my Christian acquaintances, and was compelled to believe that what they followed must be true.

---andy on 12/4/08|
i believe in jesus cos he is the only begotten son of God,he is my savouir.cos he will save the world.
---juliet on 12/4/08|
I beleive in jesus, because I need a Savior. also, we come here and we must leave here one day. why are we living? Who are we? If that question was ask we would answer it quickly, because they are natural questions, about us. I beleive in Jesus because he told us to come to him and receive him. He came and died for us. He is our intersector, between god and man. Why do we beleive in ourself? because we are who we are, who god made us. dont we have faith in ourselves, then we should beleive in Jesus.
---Dorothy on 12/4/08|
Because He gave me Life.
He gave life to my Children.
He provides for me and my children.
He gave me a car.
He gave me a job.
He gave me a voice to sing GODS praise.
He has blessed my children.
He has given me EVERTHING!
HE HAS SAVED me, when I should have been dead in my many sins.
I could go on and on.
---miche3754 on 12/4/08|
i believed in jesus because i accepted him as my lord and saviour may 8th,2003 and i attend church that preaches about jesus so i believed in jesus christ!

LORD JESUS is the son of God and our Messiah.By believing in Lord Jesus all our sins have been forgiven and we have been gifted with his grace an eternal life.
PRAISE THE LORD.
---sunil on 12/4/08|
I believe in Jesus because He first loved me and gave Hisself for me
---dailyhopeful on 12/4/08|
Because he truly is the son of God and no-one can say this unless they have the spirit of God. Once the holy spirit convicts you of all sin, you automatically repent of all your sins and jesus fills your entire heart and being. he becomes resident in your actions, your thoughts and even your speech. This is something so miraculous that just happens once you have accepted him. I believe in Jesus because he is the best teacher who ever lived and yet he had no degrees. He is the best doctor that ever lived and yet he did not attend med school. JESUS YOU ARE AWESOME!!!
---rita on 12/4/08|
I believe in Jesus because I prayed and he answered me.

Where did you get the idea I had gone, Susie?
---katavasia on 11/27/08|
Why I believe:
Mt16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
Joh6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
Jer31:3 The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

** katavasia...How long have you been Orthodox?**
Most of my life--36 years, to be exact. Why?
---katavasia on 11/26/08|
Because Jesus believes in me.
He said he chose me out of the foundation of the world AND ordained me.
We love because He first loved us.
He pursued me. I wandered on this earth wanting to know why I was here, was it just to achieve a successful lifestyle? and a moral one? No, and God showed me why he put mankind on this earth and I recriprocriated when He poured out His unconditional love upon me.
We love because He first loved us. He draws us with lovingkindness and we respond. Amen?
---donna8365 on 11/26/08|
Because He saved me by His Blood. A very dramatic salvation. Not as explosive as Paul's but close. I have seen Jesus's full form. I have heard His wonderful voice a few times. I will never forget it. And His strength and power gets me through each day. Som,e mighty tough waters. Only God I have. I know where I came from. Now He helps me. WOW. Jesus keeps me. Also, in a car wreck which I believe was on purpose just at the last impact, God flashed faith right infront of me. I was warned a month earlier that I am stronger than I think and that I would see. Well, I saw.
---catherine on 11/26/08|
Well He is the unique and the true LORD
to my knowlage he is anoited king all sick healed still healing by his name the dead raised still raising.there is no darkness in him only light.when he sent to us he grow up like us but he serve our God he never have house money but he lived to serve the needy to bring all humity to God by offering knowlage faith love peace etc...........
---gabriel on 11/26/08|
"Why do you believe in Jesus?"
Peter, inspired of the Holy Spirit, said it better than I ever could, "Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, [even] by Him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:10
I believe via the insight and empowerment of His Spirit, by His grace, through His faith.

---kevin on 11/25/08|
I believe in Jesus because he made me believe. I spent the first 32 years of my life hating and speaking out against him. In contrast I've spent the last seven speaking for him and defending his word as truth.
Don't you think something had to turn that around. I wouldn't just wake up one day and not care if I was thought of as a Jesus freak, not after all the years and countless people who's faith I'd tried to crush underfoot. I'd be a fool.
I found that the gospels are true, I found that the Bible contains not one lie, I found that the Holy Spirit is REAL and LIVING, and if I only ask forgiveness according to my guilt I could receive that same Spirit. I am found in him because he loves me. He loves you too.
---Pharisee on 11/25/08|
I think I believe in Jesus because His love is just so overwhelming and personal.
