God Loves you! He proved it too!! Romans 5:8 says - But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. But why did He have to die for us? Because we all have this problem. It's our sin. And as much as God is love He is also Holy and Just and for that reason He has to and will righteously judge our sin. We read in Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. The Bible declares that all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God in Romans 3:23. But God loves you with a pursuing infinite love. He took all the punishment for your sins and offers you forgiveness on three conditions.
First, your sin debt must be paid. He took care of that one in full, Colossians 2:13And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
Next, you have to repent and turn from your sin. Acts 3:19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord. This is not a call for perfection nor is it a demand to clean it all up before you can become a christian, but to agree with God that your sin is sin and turn from it. To agree with God that you have sinned against Him by breaking His law and to repent of unbelief which leads to the final condition and that is to believe!!
To believe and trust that Jesus paid for your sins in full by dying on the cross and rising from the dead three days later. To believe in the Jesus of the Bible. He is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life and freely went to the cross to have all our sins placed on him and paid for in full. He died on that cross and was buried in a tomb. Death could not keep him for He rose three days later conquering death and hell for all who will repent and believe!!!
Jesus said in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Jesus is the only way! To God be the Glory that there is a way!!
Hebrews 4:7 “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts."
