Have You Heard the Good News?

God loves you so much He did something amazing for you! 
The Bible—God’s message to all people—tells the whole story. 

God Made You and Loves You
God created everything there is—including you!1 He loves you more than any person could ever love you. He loves all people and created them to live in a perfect relationship with Him.2

The Bible says:
So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27, NLT)

The Problem of Sin
The first people God created—Adam and Eve—disobeyed Him. This caused sin to enter the world, breaking the perfect relationship they had with God. We sin by doing things God says are wrong and making ourselves the center of our lives instead of Him.3 Because Adam and Eve disobeyed, every person is born a sinner—no matter how good we try to be, we can’t help but disobey and do wrong. Our sin separates us from God, and because He is perfect, He must punish sin—and the punishment for sin is death. Not just death of the body, but separation from God that lasts forever.4  

The Bible says:
Everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.(Romans 3:23, NLT)

It is your sins that separate you from your God. He turns away from you when he sees them. (Isaiah 59:2, ERV)

God’s Perfect Plan 
Because every person—including you—has sinned, every person deserves to be punished by death. But God loves us so much He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to take the punishment for our sin. He lived a perfect life on earth and then died on a cross in our place, even though He didn’t deserve it.5 But it didn’t end there—God raised Him back to life! Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, the punishment for sin was paid so we could be forgiven and have a relationship with God.6 

The Bible says:
God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him would not be lost but have eternal life. (John 3:16, ERV)

What Does This Mean for You?
It means you don’t have to pay the price of death for your sin—Jesus paid it for you! When you confess you're a sinner and trust in Jesus by believing He died and rose from the dead to save you from sin, God forgives your sin and gives you a new life as His child that lasts forever. Your grateful response to His wonderful gift is making Jesus the center of your life instead of yourself.
