Jesus, the Son of God, became human to save us. In fact, 2000 years ago, he was born, lived, died, and rose from the dead. During his time here on Earth, Jesus showed how much God loves each and every one of us.

BEFORE Jesus started teaching, he was baptized, and immediately a voice from heaven recognized him, saying, “You are my beloved Son….”

Read about it in Mark 1:9-11.
JESUS never sinned. He withstood the temptations of the devil.

Read about it in Matthew 4 and consider how you can guard against temptations, which lead to sin?
MOVING to Galilee, Jesus began teaching. He first called Peter and his brother Andrew to follow and learn.

Do you have people in your life who model God’s love for you, and are you teaching others?

A MIRACLE: The first miracle by Jesus was when he turned water into wine. People saw and wondered but let the miracle pass. Have there been miracles in your life that you possibly dismissed as coincidence?

ULTIMATELY, there were 12 apostles who lived and learned from Jesus.

Read more in Luke 6:12-16.

A MIRACLE: The disciples passed 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish among a crowd of 5,000 that gathered to listen to Jesus. Everyone was fed, with many leftovers. Pray for people every day that both their physical and spiritual needs are met.

JESUS ministered to great crowds, teaching with parables (stories of spiritual truths) and performing miracles, but he knew many people were not open to hearing from him.

Read John 6:64-66.
TO HIS disciples Jesus explained the true meaning of his teachings.

Pray that God speaks to you whenever you prepare to read his Word.

A MIRACLE: While his disciples were in a boat, Jesus walked past on the surface of the water. Pray that your faith is strengthened so you can lead others to Christ.

TIME and again Jesus taught his followers to think differently, to love people, even their enemies.

Is there someone in your life who feels like an enemy but who needs your love?
JESUS taught with great authority that astonished listeners and offended the religious leaders, who wanted to be rid of him, not believing in his divinity.

Read Mark 12:12 and more.

A MIRACLE: Jesus used mud to heal a blind man. We don’t know God’s plans but he hears our prayers and can work miracles.

AS JESUS entered Jerusalem, the holy city, for the last time, he was celebrated by the people as a prophet. They laid cloaks and branches in front of him.

It’s easy to follow the crowd but how is your faith when you need to stand alone?

A MIRACLE: While in a boat, Jesus calmed a dangerous storm that had created great fear among his disciples. Anxiety and fear can consume us but trust in God brings peace beyond understanding.

A FEW days later, Jesus ate his final meal with his disciples, and he spoke of the betrayal to come, which would lead to his arrest.

Read about the Passover meal in Matthew 26:17-25.
LATER that night, Jesus was arrested and falsely accused, but he said nothing to defend himself. He would be sacrificed—killed on a cross—to save people then and now.

Matthew 27:11-51 tells of the trial, torture, and crucifixion. It's worth taking a few minutes to read through and see what happened.
JESUS’ death was God’s plan, one death to cover all the sins of the world. Jesus died, showing how great God’s love is for us.

Read John 3:16 and accept God’s love.
THE BODY of Jesus was placed in a tomb, the entrance blocked with a large boulder to be sure he could not be removed.

Read about it in Matthew 27:57-66.
JESUS proved his power over death when he rose from the dead and left the tomb on the third day.

We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus on Easter, but we should celebrate every day!

It's as simple as ABC.

A - Admit that you are a sinner.
B - Believe that Jesus died for your sins, rose from the dead, and he alone can save you.
C - Confess your sins and commit your life to his service.
If you made the commitment to trust Jesus, tell someone and share your newfound life in Christ.

Next steps are to talk to God (pray), learn more (read the Bible), and let your new life shine for others (find a Bible-believing church where you can learn to recognize God's leading).
