Jesus - The Reason We Exist

The Bible is very clear…  Jesus is God the Son.  Jesus, in His incarnation (this means his birth into human history as both fully God and fully man), provided for us the clearest and most significant revelation of God that has ever been or ever will be.  It is he who alone can forgive our sins and grant us salvation.  In Hebrews 1:1-3 we read:
1 “Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. 3 He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…” - Hebrews 1:1-3 (ESV)
 
The question “Who is Jesus?” is of vital importance.  While many people believe that Jesus lived, was a good teacher, or a very spiritual man, there remain many erroneous perspectives of Him that deny that He is God.  The Apostle Paul spoke of this tendency to reduce the majesty of the real Jesus in favor of a diluted and diminished Jesus that in the end is no longer truly Jesus at all.  In 2 Corinthians 11:3-4 Paul writes:
 
3 But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4 For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough. - 2 Corinthians 11:3-4 (ESV)
 
It is important that you determine your own personal belief about Jesus, and that belief be based on truth.  To help you, we have provided the following statements that Jesus Himself said about who He was.  We hope they will compel you to receive Him as your own God and Savior.  It is important to note that each of the following points includes a verse from the Bible that is a quote from the mouth of Jesus declaring that He was/is God.  Jesus was put to death for continually declaring Himself to be God and in the end it really comes down to whether or not each of us believes Him and on that point His words become incredibly important and potentially life changing.
