Jesus is the son of God who became man for our sins “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent Jesus to the world so we might be saved through Him.
Jesus is capable of leading us to the Father. He says that “I am the door, if anyone enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture (John 10:9)”.
Jesus was tried and condemned because of our sins in order for us to be saved. Anything we ask for in the name of Jesus will be given to us by God the Father because the name is the name above all names.
Jesus is the Good Shepherd, He protects His sheep from the attack of robbers and danger. As a Good Shepherd, Jesus knows those who believe in Him and He cares for them. He knows the Father and the Father knows Him. He tells us that He and the Father are one. He will give eternal life to anyone who follows Him.
