But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 KJV
Jesus took the punishment due us for our sin. On Friday they beat and crucified the Son of God. He laid His life down and tasted death for us.
On Sunday He rose from the Dead.
He now lives and gives life to whosoever receives Him as Lord and Savior.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16 KJV
