All of us have sinned and are deserving of the penalty for our sin.
The Gospel, or good news, is that because He loves us, even though He was completely sinless, JESUS chose to sacrifice Himself and take the punishment of death that we deserve for our sin. Then He rose from the dead with power over sin and eternal death. So, the debt for our sin is fully paid. All we have to do is accept His sacrifice and respond to His call to relationship with Him.
So, if you are ready to respond to Jesus and live your life in Him, follow these simple steps below
