I was 30 years old before I was introduced to the most important person in my life. Growing up I heard a lot about Him, but I never knew why He had to die on the cross. I did not know that it was such a personal thing. Since I met my Savior, I have come to learn that He is the one who sustains me through all of life’s ups and downs.  Because of Him I am promised eternal life in heaven with Him and God His Father.  His name is Jesus and He is the Messiah, the Savior of the world.  He can be your Savior too. You see, Jesus is God’s Son and on Christmas we celebrate His birth. The Bible says that no one is good enough to be with God in heaven when they leave this planet because God is holy and His home in heaven is holy. But God is merciful so He gave His Son as a gift to be offered as the Perfect Lamb sacrifice to pay the penalty of death that we all owe because of sin (Romans 6:23).

And here’s the thing: Jesus did not have to die because He was and is perfect!  He did it in our place, as our substitute. Here are some Bible verses that talk about the simple gospel that

“Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead”:

1 Corinthians 15:1-4:
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; {2} By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. {3} For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; {4} And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

We have a debt we can not pay and Jesus took our sin debt upon Himself and paid the debt He did not owe. Isn’t that good news? If you believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay for your sins as a gift from God and understand that there is nothing you can do to earn it, then you have the confidence of knowing that when you die you will spend eternity with God and no one can ever take that away from you (Ephesians 1:13-14, 4:30, John 10:27-29).

What is stopping you then from believing in the gospel, or good news, of the Bible? Remember what I have shared?

Jesus died for OUR sins and rose from the dead.

Jesus died for MY sins and rose from the dead.

Jesus died for YOUR sins and rose from the dead.

No matter what you have been taught, how bad you are or have been in the past, or what church you attend (or don’t attend), salvation is available to everyone, including you!

Jesus Lives!  Let Him provide for you the Bread of Life to sustain you today and for eternity.
