Does it really make
a difference to our lives that a man by the name of Jesus lived
2,000 years ago? Why should this affect your life and mine

believe in Him (see
Claims Jesus made).
am" sayings of Jesus (see
Jesus' "I am" sayings)
include some very beautiful statements about how Jesus does not
simply bring a message about spiritual truth but is Himself the
answer to our deepest longings. As the One who offers eternal
life, Jesus claims to be all that we need in order to be forgiven
for our sins and to live in a way that pleases our Creator.
