Jesus desires a real, personal relationship with us. His love for us is so strong that He sacrificed His life to make this relationship possible! (John 3:16) Why was this necessary?
JESUS DIED SO YOU CAN LIVE
According to the Bible, we were born with a problem called sin (Romans 3:23). We have violated God’s Law, and justice demands that we be separated from God for eternity (Romans 6:23). Jesus came to earth so that He could sacrifice Himself on our behalf and experience the death that we deserve. He loved us so much that He died on the cross, was buried, and rose again, so we can live (John 3:16)!
HAVE YOU PUT YOUR TRUST IN JESUS? When you simply believe and accept this incredible free gift, you can know for sure that you have a relationship with God and eternity in Heaven after you die (Romans 10:9). Here is how to accept this gift. The Bible says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” That is a promise directly from God that if you will pray to Him, confess that you are a sinner, ask Him to forgive your sins, and accept Him as your Saviour; He promises to save you and give you the free gift of eternal life.
