Jesus’ Death at Calvary

What ever we question about all the suffering in the world or why bad things happen to good people; God’s love for the people He created is proved at Calvary. He gave His beloved Son, the best He had, to prove His love for sinners so that we wouldn’t perish.

We need to take this seriously. God allowed His Son to be humiliated. To suffer too horribly for us to ignore the sacrifice.

Jesus mentioned hell in the New Testament more often then He mentioned Heaven. It’s a real place. And without belief, without an act of receiving this gift of salvation from God through Jesus Christ a person will perish. While God sent His Son not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved, it’s a two-sided coin: salvation for those who believe on one side and judgment for those who don’t on the other.

But, when we do accept, when we are born again, we are immediately in Eternal Life. It doesn’t even wait for our bodies to die, it’s already started.

The true moral state of our heart and mind is declared by the attitude we take of Christ, and the Bible that reveals Him. To believe in Christ is to believe that He is the Son of God who is given to save us from our sins so that we can live entirely for God as we were made to live. To lean on Him and love Him.
