The GOOD NEWS is JESUS knows YOU and wants to be YOUR SAVIOR!!!
GOD, the father of Jesus, Creator of the human race and all the world, created us to have a relationship with HIM, because HE loves us and wants a people to love, nurture and care for and a people who will return HIS love and trust HIM to guide them through this life and eternity.
The first people, Adam and Eve *sinned and broke this relationship for the rest of time, into eternity. HE was a GOD who was pure, had never sinned, HE was a just GOD. HE could not look on or tolerate sin and had to punish it!
This was a dilemna for HIM. On the one hand, HE loved HIS people, created by HIS own hands and in HIS own image, but on the other hand he had to punish their sins and could not even look on them as sinners.
HE and HIS SON, JESUS, loved us so much that HE allowed JESUS to take on our sin and every person's sin for all time, until the end of earthly time.
JESUS came to earth and lived among as an ordinary person. HE died on a cross for us because HE loved us more than HE loved HIS own life! HE arose from the grave and went back to Heaven, giving us the opportunity to live with HIM in Heaven for eternity, when we die.
When JESUS died for us, to get us back to GOD, we could be in fellowship and relationship with GOD, again, and with JESUS!!! We could be "saved" from our sins and isolation from GOD!!!
JESUS alone is our saving faith. Having the faith to trust in HIM alone and HIS sacrifice for us puts us in a fulfilling awesome relationship with HIM and GOD.
"...Believe (trust) on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved..." Acts 16.31
