What God Offers Humanity
What God Offers
goes far beyond rituals. He offers salvation... Forgiveness for sin and eternal life. . He Offers us Jesus. without whom you cannot have forgiveness of sin and eternal life.
If you find yourself in court with a $50,000 fine, a judge will not let you go simply because you say that you are sorry and that you won't commit the crime again. However, if someone stepped in and paid the $50,000 fine, then you would be free to go from the demands of the law. God releases us from the demands of eternal justice on the basis that someone else paid our fine. Two thousand years ago Jesus Christ paid in full for the sins of the world. His words on the Cross were, "It is finished!". Our case is dismissed on the basis of His suffering death.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
Jesus is not one of many ways to heaven; He is the ONLY way.
