Jesus is the risen LORD, the reigning King, the Light of the World, the Bread of Life, the Resurrection and the Life. Jesus is the only way to God the Father. Only through Jesus we can be saved from sin and have eternal life. Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead.
Without Jesus, all of us are destined to spend eternity facing condemnation from God, for the wrong that we have done.
But here’s the good news:
God shows His love for us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Jesus on the cross reveals God’s love for us. God, being so merciful and full of love, willingly took on the punishment we deserved, for all our sins, upon Himself, on the cross. In this way, the Father punished sin on Jesus, enabling humans to be reconciled to Him. Jesus then rose again and is alive now ruling over the world from the right hand of the Father. In Jesus, for those who believe and trust in Him, we have the guarantee of eternal life and a resurrection like His.
