|Why is Receiving Christ Crucial?|
Are you looking for answers?
The central theme of the Bible is God's love for you and for all people.
This love was revealed when Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came into the world as a human being, lived a sinless life,
died on the cross, and rose from the dead. Because Christ died, your sins can be forgiven, and because He conquered
death you can have eternal life! You can know for sure what will become of you after you die.
You have probably heard the story of God's love referred to as the "Gospel." The word Gospel simply means
"Good News." The Gospel is the Good News that, because of what Christ has done, we can be forgiven and can live forever.
But this gift of forgiveness and eternal life cannot be yours unless you willingly accept it. God requires an individual response from you.
The following verses from the Bible show God's part and yours in this process:
God's Love Is Revealed in the Bible
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." —John 3:16 (NIV)
God loves you. He wants to bless your life and make it full and complete. And He wants to give you a life which will last forever, even after you experience physical death.
