Why the Cross?
So much of the teaching of the Bible points to the death of the Lord Jesus. Neither His perfect life, marvellous teaching nor His powerful miracles are the focus of the Bible’s message. Above all else, the Son of God came into the world to die.
What makes His death so important?
The answer is that He died as a substitute, a sin bearer and a Saviour. All people are lost, guilty and helpless before God’s holy law.
How can they escape God’s righteous wrath?
The Bible answer is this – “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” . As an amazing rescue plan, God’s Son volunteered to take the place of the guilty and bear the penalty of their sin.
He Lives – a Saviour!
In raising Christ from the dead, God demonstrated that He accepted the sacrifice of Jesus Christ in the place of sinners. Now all people may be saved by repentance toward God, and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
He will become your Saviour if you receive Him.
