John Chapter 3 Verse 16 says: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life".BlueLetterBible
The above quote is what God (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit) did for you and me. God the Father sent His only Son Jesus to be the sacrifice for all of mankind, and all we have to do is to ask Jesus into our lives.

Jesus said in John Chapter 14 verse 6 'Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me". BlueLetterBible

Here Jesus is saying that the only way to the Father is through Him. John Chapter 1 Verse 1 says: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". BlueLetterBible In this verse the word "Word" is a reference to the Christ and His name is Jesus. It is saying that at the very beginning of time, Christ was there. If we read further down in John Chapter 1, in verse 14 it says: " And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth". Here it is talking about the Word, or Christ, being made a man, or as it says, "Made flesh" and living with His creation - man.

What an amazing thing to read. God the Creator, loves His created so much that he sends the Christ, whose name is Jesus, to earth for the forgiveness of our sins so that we can come into His presence by way of a sacrifice. His creation - mankind, listened to Jesus and saw the wonderful things He did, yet still wanted Him dead. To die a death on a cross.

But this was all of God's plan. Jesus loved us so much that He was prepared to die for us so that Jesus became the sacrifice for us and He was the one that took the punishment for us. We should have been the ones that were punished, because we are the ones that commited sin. Jesus was sinless, yet He was seen by His Father as being pure sin because of the sin of the whole world, you and me.

The good news is that Jesus was raised from the dead by His Father and now lives in heaven at God's right hand, so that you and me can live with God in heaven.

If you would like to be a child of God, then:

 

Come, say this prayer and ask Jesus into your life:

Dear God.

I know that I am a sinner.

I don't deserve to be with you for all eternity. But You want me to be with You because You love me.

I am guilty of ignoring you, but I want this to change.

I need your forgiveness.

I want to stop living life my way.

I believe that Jesus died for my sins and was raised from the dead to give me new life.

I now acknowledge Jesus as the ruler of my life.

Help me to love You and make me clean in Your sight.

Amen.

 

Welcome to God's family :)
