God created our universe and everything in it—including us! As our Creator, God has the right to say how we should live our lives. When we choose to live our lives our own way—which we all have!—we rebel (sin) against God. God’s Word tells us that our sin carries a death sentence. We are condemned to be separated from God forever.
Now God is love and doesn’t want us to be separated from Him. So God sent His Son, Jesus, to become man. He lived perfectly and never sinned, not even once! Then He was crucified and God placed all our sin on Him, punishing Him in our place. When Jesus died, the penalty for our sin was paid in full. Jesus was then buried and came back to life on the third day, triumphing over death.
Today God offers everyone forgiveness of sins and eternal life. When you realize that you have sinned and can’t deliver yourself, you can choose to believe that Jesus died in your place. You can choose to trust in Jesus as your Savior and receive God’s gift of eternal life.
Why not talk to God today? Tell Him that you want Jesus to rescue you from your sins and give you eternal life.
