What difference will it make?
To the renowned historian, Josephus, Jesus Christ was a historical figure: ”a wise man”, ”a teacher”, “condemned to the cross”, who “appeared alive again the third day”.
But what does Jesus mean to you in your life? You might ask, “What difference is it going to make to my life to believe in him?”
Perhaps one way of approaching the answer is to think of the statements and promises Jesus made.
