A holy God demands a holy people. One single sin is enough to keep you or I from heaven. To a just and perfect God, every sin is a capital crime. No one has the power to escape death and eternal damnation. Yes, God is holy and just, yet He is compassionate.
Before He spun the world on its axis, He provided the perfect sacrifice for sin. Before He breathed life into Adam, He had already offered His only begotten Son as the Lamb that takes away the sins of the world.
Christ came to earth, a baby both fully human and fully God. He lived a perfect life. He lived a sinless life. He gave Himself up on a cross. He raised Himself up from the dead on the third day, defeating sin and death, so that we may not perish… so that we may live in victory.
He is the Resurrection and the Life.
