Forgiveness is a beautiful word, and whether we realize it or not, the greatest need of our lives. This need flows from the ultimate consequence of our sin: eternal separation from God in misery and judgment called Hell. By demonstrating the greatest love and mercy the world has ever known, God became the one, true path of forgiveness for sinners. How? He became Jesus Christ.

About two thousand years ago, God "became human (Jesus) and made His home among us." 5 He experienced love, joy, pain, and sadness just as we do; yet, He lived a perfect and sinless life of obedience. This ultimately led him to willingly, sufficiently, and obediently suffer and die on a wooden cross rightfully meant for sinners. But why? "For Christ died for our sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God." 6 Three days after He died, Jesus arose from the grave alive, demonstrating His power over the curse of sin. Death, itself, had been defeated. For all those who trust in Jesus alone, He offers full forgiveness of sin and eternal life with Him.

So, how does this change a life?
