History records that Jesus was a great Teacher who ended up dying on the cross some 2,000 years ago. Today the cross remains as one of the most widely recognized religious symbols globally. Why would a gruesome execution instrument be revered and embraced? More importantly, why do you think Jesus is worshipped for His teachings and His death on the cross?
That’s because Jesus was not just a good Teacher, He was the Son of God who led a perfect life. He entered our world to die on the cross as our substitute to bear the consequences of our shortcomings of God’s standards. And Christians celebrate Jesus’ victory over death because He rose from the dead which He himself claimed would happen as proof He is the Son of God.
That’s why we love Him because He first loved us. Would you like to find out more too for yourself?
