He died on the cross and rose from the grave, paying the penalty for our sin and bridging the great gulf between God and people.
He died in our place
“But God showed His love to us. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
He Rose from the Dead
“First of all, I taught you what I had received. It was this: Christ died for
our sins as the Holy Writings said He would (Isaiah 53:5-12). Christ was buried.
He was raised from the dead three days later as the Holy Writings said He would (Psalm, 16:9,10). Christ was seen by Peter. After that,the twelve followers saw Him.
After that, more than 500 of His followers saw Him at one time. Most of them
are still here, but some have died” (1 Corinthians 15:3-6).
We must receive God’s gift personally.
He is the only way to God
“There is one God. There is one Man standing between God and men. That Man is Christ Jesus. He gave His life for all men so they could go free and not be held by the power of sin. God made this known to the world at the right time” (1 Timothy 2:5,6).
“I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one can go to the Father except by Me”
