What did Jesus did on the Cross?

All of us have messed up in life. We have done things we are not proud of. Those things are called sin. All of us have sinned. No one person is better than another in God's eyes. Because of our sin, we are separated from God, who is holy and will not tolerate sin of any kind. Sin is what keeps people from getting to Heaven. God's holiness requires that sin be punished.

"For all have sinned, and fallen short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23

Even though God detests sin, He absolutely loves his prized creation: You! There's nothing you can do that will ever make God love you more or less. Yes, God hates sin, but He values you more than anything. You know what you look like when you wake up in the morning? Hmmm? You know what I mean. That person who has smelly breath, dirty teeth, greasy hair, eye boogers, and... well, you get the picture. That's the person God loves. He loves you just like you are!

"God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Romans 5:8

Now we've got a problem. If God values you so much, and hates sin so much, how can He allow someone who has sin into His presence? It's true, He was faced with an ultimate dilemma. He chose to give the ultimate gift to you: Himself. God came to Earth as a man: Jesus. Jesus lived a perfect life. He never once did anything wrong. But he lived like you and I do. Jesus eventually was crucified on a Roman cross. People have speculated why He did such a thing for thousands of years. But there's only one reason: Remember when you read that God must punish sin? Well, guess what? He chose to be punished for us. God literally will do anything to be with you. That's real love. He chose to be punished and die a horrible death all because He values you so much! But then, three days later, he did not stay dead but came back to life to prove He was truly the King of Kings!

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23-24

"For God so loved the world, He gave His only son, so whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16

Now that you know what it cost God to love you like he does:

Won't you give your life to Him and make Him the "Master" of your life?

You can know right now where you will spend eternity when your body dies.

Why not take this moment to talk with God and make Him the Master?

Say something like this:

"Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. But I also know that you love me very much. I know that you came to Earth and were punished for my sin because you love me so much. I also know that you rose back to life three days after you died. Thank you for loving me that much. Because you gave your life for me, I'm going to give my life to you. I make you the "Master." I make you my Lord. I'm sorry for the wrong things I've done in my life. I know you will forgive me for those sins. Help me to go and live a new life. Thank you for changing me and making me a new person. In Jesus' name I pray, amen."

"If you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God has raised Him up from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9

If you meant those words when you talked with God, you are a new Christian! Welcome to the family!

Now, there are 4 ways you can grow as a Christian:

- Find a Bible you can understand and read it every day. -
- Find time to spend with God every day and just talk with Him. -
- Get involved in a Bible-believing church near you and hang with other Christians.
- Tell other people about what God did for you. -

"If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old is gone and the new has come." 2 Corinthians 5:17
