The Scripture says, “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
We needed a way to be reconnected to God and the only way was a human blood sacrifice which was God in the flesh as Jesus Christ His only begotten Son.
In the old Testament there we’re animal sacrifices, to atone for sins, but Jesus came to stop that. Others may believe there is other ways to heaven, but the only way is through Jesus Christ. There is no other way. Jesus went to the cross to save us from our sins and for us to be able to fellowship with God. Even in the books of the old testament they predicted His death and his ressurection. They new God was going to make away for them some how and some way..
John 19:30 NIV
When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
During the 6 hours on the cross Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice to atone for the sins of the world. He destroys the separation that sin caused between God and man. After accomplishing this He died.
No other sacrifice will do, Jesus did it all, He had to die to save us from our sins and from spending a eternity without God..Praise Him for what He did, and if you don’t know him ask Him into your life and heart, repent of your sins (meaning say your sorry to God for doing things that are wrong, turn from them and ask him to forgive you) you won’t ever regret it, I would rather live my life like there is a God then to live it without a God, like our Father in heaven. Jesus said “It is finished” on the cross He paid the cost..
