Who is Jesus?
John 3:16-17 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.”
Jesus is God coming down to earth, on our level, and in the flesh to save us from ourselves and the bondage of sin. He is God’s physical presence. Our salvation and prime example of how to live life here on earth is in Jesus Christ. Our redemption (purchase of freedom) cannot be satisfied no matter how many religious rituals or good acts we perform. Our imperfection and choices required someone without sin to pay the penalty of eternal separation and punishment for us.
That Someone who did that was Christ. He lived a sinless life, absorbed all on man’s sin, and died on the cross in order for us to have life. What are the advantages of accepting His gift of salvation? Eternal life, forgiveness, adoption into God’s family, deliverance from the bondage of sin, inheritance of God’s promises, righteousness, the Holy Spirit, refuge, closeness with God, the list goes on and on.

He had a plan for us since the beginning of time and all we have to do…once again is choose Him. Here is another opportunity for humanity after the Garden of Eden situation.
