We keep seeing and hearing that Jesus died on the cross and that He died to save us. Have you ever wondered why Jesus had to die? Couldn’t He save us without dying? Let’s check out the whole story to know why.
Jesus is God. He came to earth to live as a man and die on the cross. Why?? God created the first man and woman, Adam and Eve. He placed them in the garden of Eden. Adam and Eve sinned by disobeying God. Due to this, sin entered the world and now we are all sinful. The punishment of sin is death. Since all mankind is sinful, there could never be a perfect sinless sacrifice to die in place of us.
Then, Jesus came. He was born as a human baby, but sinless and pure. e lived without sin and died in our place. Now whoever believes in Jesus and accepts Him as their personal Saviour is saved. They have eternal life, a life with God that continues even after death on this earth!! That is why Jesus died on the cross. Because God loves us so much!
