Overview

Life is full of negatives. “Who am I?” No one special. “Why am I here?” No reason at all. “Is there a God?” No. “Where am I going?” Nowhere. “Does anything matter?” Not really.

In this series of short, encouraging booklets, ministers and bible scholars inject some positivity into that dialogue. Yes, you are someone special. Yes, you are here for a reason. Yes, there is a God, and you can know him personally. Yes, you are a person with an eternal destiny. And yes—everything and everyone in this world matters. There’s plenty of bad news to go around, but the Yes Book series tells the good news we all long to hear: God loves you, and he’s given his Son to prove it.

Faith is important today because it is an essential part of how you live—from the simple things like faith that a chair will hold you up, to more serious things like your faith in God. As Bob Dylan pointed out, “It may be the devil, or it may be the Lord, but you’re gonna have to serve somebody.” Faith that the teachings and works of Jesus Christ are true can change your life. Such faith results in your becoming part of the family of God and enjoying a relationship with God. It gives you a freedom over habits and addictions that do not please God—and it brings joy, freedom, and eternal life.

Yes, God loves you. He wants to heal your pain, hurts, heartaches, and diseases. He wants to comfort you in times of trouble, depression, and affliction. He offers you forgiveness—even when you cannot forgive yourself. He wants to tell you that you are important, beautiful, and can be a success.

What do you think about Jesus Christ? For sheer influence on the human race, you cannot ignore him. Who was he? Did he claim to be God? Do we know what he said? Why did he let himself be killed? Did he rise from the dead? Here are answers to 10 key questions about Jesus, including perhaps the most important one of all—does Jesus care about you?

Yes, Jesus Died for You

Jesus’ followers had expected him to overthrow their oppressors. Roman officials tried to avoid ordering his crucifixion. When he died, the midday sun became dark for three hours and a huge curtain in the Jewish temple was torn in two. His body disappeared from his tomb, and then he appeared to his disciples. However, the most unusual aspect of Jesus’ death isn’t any of those things—but the fact that Jesus died for you. What does that mean? The most dominant figure in all history, a person who claimed to be God, died 2,000 years ago as an amazing act of love so that you could have peace with God.

Yes, Jesus Rose from the Dead

“I am not a believer,” author H.G. Wells said, “but I must confess as a historian that this penniless preacher from Nazareth is . . . easily the most dominant figure in all of history.” Unlike other influential people, both Jesus Christ and his followers claimed that he was killed and came to life again. That’s an amazing claim! By focusing on Jesus’ last week—in which he was betrayed, condemned to death, and crucified—you will better come to understand that claim. The story of Jesus is not merely history. Jesus also said that his death and resurrection would make it possible for you to live at peace with God. This booklet will introduce you to the God who loves you so much he was willing to die to prove it.

Yes, Psalm 23 Is Relevant Today

Is the Lord your shepherd? Psalm 23, written by King David, is particularly poignant because before becoming king, David was a shepherd. He knew the dangers and challenges of taking care of sheep. He learned to trust God’s protection over both himself and his flock. David’s words are more fully revealed in the New Testament where Jesus is described as the Good Shepherd, the Great Shepherd, and the Chief Shepherd—and his followers are described as his sheep. Jesus the shepherd feeds his sheep, protects them, heals them, and leads them home to heaven where they know security, peace, and love.

The Bible has helped form the English language; it has given context to our literature; it has inspired our music; and for centuries it was the one book a family would own and read before all others. It is the most important book in Western civilization—but does it tell the truth? What is in the Old and New Testaments? Are the events of the Bible historically verifiable? Is the text of the Bible accurate? This little booklet answers these questions about the Bible and it’s one theme: God made you, loves you, and wants you to experience his love.

Yes, We All Have a Sin Problem

Talking about sin is out of fashion. You may feel a sense of failure because you haven’t lived up to the expectations you had for yourself. But sin? Surely no one worries about that any more—or do they? Our world is marked by greed, envy of what others have, pride, laziness, anger, sexual objectification, and overeating—otherwise known as the Seven Deadly Sins. Although such things are common, it doesn’t make them right. Sin destroys our relationships with other, ourselves, and God. Sin is destructive and causes guilt, alienation—and ultimately death. We all have a sin problem. The good news is that God can resolve it.

If you are familiar with only one of the psalms in the Bible, you probably know Psalm 23. It’s a song of comfort—which is why it is one of the most popular passages in the Bible. Even in times of darkness, bereavement, danger, or loneliness, it reminds you that you can know that God, the shepherd, is faithful, generous, good, and loving. God protects us, honors us, and refreshes us. However, the shepherd only takes care of his sheep. The comfort in this psalm is only for those who can say, “The Lord is my shepherd.” The good news is that if you acknowledge Jesus to be God and the Lord of your life, you can know that the Lord is your shepherd, too.
