Jesus is the Son of God. He lived on Earth more than 2,000 years ago, and He lived a perfect life.
Did you know that He’s the only person to ever live a perfect life? Everyone else has done something wrong, or gone against what God wants us to do. This is called sin. Sin entered the world a long time ago through the disobedience of the first man and woman, Adam and Eve. Ever since, the world has not worked the way it was designed. This is the reason the world is full of pain — because of sin. And because we all sin, we face judgment and consequences from God.
But that’s why Jesus came to Earth! He came to save us from this judgment. He lived a perfect life, but then He died an unjust death on a cross as a sacrifice for our sins. Through Jesus’ death, God offered forgiveness to all who believe in Jesus and admit their need for a savior. You must humble yourself and admit your sins. God is faithful to forgive you if you do (1 John 1:9)! Jesus saves us from the punishment for our sins and gives us a chance to be made right with God.
