“God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:16-17
We believe that God is a loving God, and that he loves us greatly. This love was demonstrated in the most incredible of ways. He sent his Son, JESUS, to earth. Jesus lived a perfect life, he never did anything wrong. He demonstrated love and compassion; performed many miracles; and delivered some wonderful teaching.
There is more to this than just Jesus living on earth though. He died in the most brutal of ways, on a cross. A criminal’s death for someone who did nothing wrong his entire life. You may wonder why Jesus went through with it. The solution is simple – LOVE – his love for you. Jesus did not stay dead, however. He rose victoriously from the grave!
But what does all this mean? Well, it means that if we come to God and ask for forgiveness for the wrong things that we have done, He will forgive us. We can receive his grace and live in the knowledge that when our time on earth is at an end, we will then get to spend eternity with him.
