Jesus died to bring us near to God. He took our place so that we can now experience LIFE! We were dead in our sins. We were deceived by the devil and responded with disobedience to God. We were heading toward destruction. “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners” (Rom 5:8). Just like the thief on the cross, you too can experience true LIFE!
