Adam, the representative of mankind, sinned when he ate the fruit from the forbidden tree (Genesis 3:6). Romans 6:23 tells us the punishment of sin is death, therefore, everyone who would come after Adam was destined to eternal death. Since God has foreknowledge and He knew Adam would sin, before the world was created, God orchestrated a plan to redeem mankind (Revelations 13:8). God’s love for us compelled Him to send His only Son (John 3:16). God sent His pure Seed in the flesh of a woman (Mary) and she gave birth to Jesus (Matthew 1:18).

Jesus lived a holy life, fulfilling all the demands of the Law, and accomplishing the will of God (Matthew 5:17). Once again, the punishment of sin is death, therefore, someone had to die for mankind’s sins. Jesus, an innocent man, Who knew no sin, took on all of mankind’s sins and sacrificed His life for us (2 Corinthians 5:21). Jesus’ blood for mankind was presented to God and God accepted His sacrifice (Hebrews 9:12).

Now, everyone who believes that Jesus is the Son of God and He died on our behalf will be saved (Romans 10:9). There’s no effort or sacrifices on our part in order to be saved. We have to simply believe in the One Who did it all (Acts 16:31).

*If you know anyone who is an unbeliever or unsure about the Truth of Christianity, send this message to them and encourage them to believe.

Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
