According to the bible, Christ
ians are people whose lives are centred on Christ
– that is, on the man Jesus, who was born in Bethlehem, was raised in Nazareth, and whose life, death and resurrection revealed him to be the unique Son of God.
In the true ‘story’ of Jesus Christ, God gives us proof that he loves the world he created - despite the fact that this world has done nothing to earn his love. In fact, each and every one of us is guilty in God’s sight and deserves his punishment, not his love. But when God sent his Son Jesus into the world...
- Jesus lived the perfect life - which we don't...
- Jesus offered his perfect life as a sacrifice, taking the punishment for sin - so that we don't have to...
- Jesus rose again from the dead, to rule over the world from Heaven – so that everyone who trusts in him can be certain that
- they have been forgiven by God for all their past sins
- they have received God's own Spirit to help them in the present
- they have a guarantee from God of a glorious future with him
