of his great love and generosity, God did not leave us to suffer
the consequences of our foolish rebellion. He did something to save
us. He sent his own divine son into our world to become a manJesus
us, Jesus didnt rebel against God. He always lived under Gods
rule. He always did what God said, and so did not deserve death
or punishment. Yet Jesus did die. Although he had the power of God
to heal the sick, walk on water and even raise the dead, Jesus allowed
himself to be executed on a cross. Why?
Bible rings with the incredible news that Jesus died as a substitute
for rebels like us. The debt that we owed God, Jesus paid by dying
in our place. He took the full force of Gods justice on himself,
so that forgiveness and pardon might be available to us.
this is quite undeserved by us. It is a generous gift, from start
