God's plan is to forgive sinners by bringing them to faith in Jesus (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Every one of us has a BIG problem. You see, God commands us to love Him the most, obey our parents, tell the truth, and many other commands in the Bible. But each one of us has disobeyed God (Romans 3:23). The punishment for our sin is death (Romans 6:23). We cannot go to heaven with our sins, even if we try to be good.
But God made a plan to forgive believing sinners! God sent His Son Jesus to earth. Jesus died on the cross to pay the punishment for sin. Then Jesus became alive again, showing He won the victory over sin and death!
If God leads us to turn from sin and trust in the Lord Jesus, God forgives our sins once and for all. He will make us new from the inside out so we can trust and obey the Lord. To learn about the path to forgiveness and Heaven - click here
Go back to:
- "In Christ we are set free by the blood of his death, and so we have forgiveness of sins. How rich is God's grace" (Ephesians 1:7, NCV).
- "[God] has saved us and called us to a holy life - not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time" (2 Timothy 1:9).
- "You know that in the past you were living in a worthless way, a way passed down from the people who lived before you. But you were saved from that useless life. You were bought, not with something that ruins like gold or silver, but with the precious blood of Christ, who was like a pure and perfect lamb. Christ was chosen before the world was made, but he was shown to the world in these last times for your sake. Through Christ you believe in God, who raised Christ from the dead and gave him glory. So your faith and your hope are in God" (1 Peter 1:18-21, NCV).
