Our wise God said that the penalty for our sin is death (Romans 6:23). We need someone to take care of that penalty for us. And because God loves His children, He sent someone to do just that!
In His great wisdom, God sent His Son Jesus Christ to earth about 2,000 years ago. Jesus is God, and He lived a perfect life. He was always wise (1 Corinthians 1:30). But He was put to death on the Cross, paying the penalty for sin that we deserved.
But here is the power in all of that. He rose from the dead three days later, showing that God had accepted His sacrifice. When we say we are sorry for our sins (repent) and believe that Jesus died in our place, we receive the gift of salvation from the punishment our sin deserved (Acts 20:21; Ephesians 2:8–9; Romans 10:9–10). We become a child of God forever! We will live forever with Him in heaven!
