We believe Jesus is who He says He is.
When Constantine became Emperor of the Roman Empire everything changed. He split the government into civil and military. He created a new form of currency to stop inflation. He also brought religious tolerance to the empire and through this instituted Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire. Before Constantine, it was illegal to be a Christian. So in one swift stoke of a pen Christians go from hiding in caves to the outspoke Emperor of the Roman empire. When the ruler changed everything changed.
It is the same for us when there is a change in the ruler of our lives. When we take ourselves off the throne of our life and put Jesus on it, everything changes. When we start following Jesus our lives become less about “me” and more about honoring Jesus with my life.
Jesus is one of three things to you. He is either a complete liar who has manipulated millions of people for centuries and those who believe are just precipitating this audacious lie. You might think that he is more than just a liar. You may think he is absolutely a crazy man who was sick with a delusional God virus and he has passed his lunatic disease to his followers for centuries. If you don’t think he is a liar or a lunatic then he has to be your Lord. He wants to be the king of your heart. Know that God loves you and he wants what is best for you. He is a good father who wants good things for his children. Who is on the throne of your life? Will you let Jesus rule in your life? He will change everything!
