GOD IS LOVING
He reached out to us.
God could not simply watch men die and go to hell without doing something about it. He has provided a way for us to be close to Him that satisfies His holy, just nature. John 3:16 says “For God so loved the World, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” Jesus was in heaven with God and come to earth in the form of a man. He came to give his life in exchange for ours. “Christ [Jesus] also hath suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18). He paid the penalty for our sin.
2 Corinthians 5:21 teaches that He completes the exchange by giving His perfect righteousness to us. Now, God can give us a home with Him in heaven forever and still be just. This is the reality of the exchange He offers us!
Jesus offers you the ability to have a full relationship with God as your Father. He suffered as a lying, coveting thief in your place and offers you the ability to have full relationship with God as your Father, accepted by Him. Jesus delivered us from the penalty of sin when he defeated death and rose from the grave.
