Don't worry, there's good news!
God loves us at a level we aren't capable of comprehending and it breaks God's heart to be separated from us by sin. In a stunning act of grace, He sent His one and only son to take on human form a little more than 2,000 years ago. Jesus Christ, both God and man at the same time, walked the earth demonstrating for us the life that God intends for us to live. He served the hurting, spoke the truth, and embodied true humility. Jesus taught and modeled an approach to life that puts ourselves at the bottom and puts God and others at the top.
Beyond the example Christ set, the true purpose of His coming was to do for us what we are incapable of doing for ourselves. As Jesus Christ allowed himself to be tortured and executed on a cross, the pain he experienced went far deeper than his body. In addition to the excruciating pain he felt physically, he also took on the punishment for all mankind spiritually. It was, hands down, the greatest act of personal sacrifice ever offered. Jesus in our place. All of the just wrath of God towards sin was poured on Jesus Christ instead of being poured out on us. Under the weight of our sin, our Savior Jesus Christ, gave his life.
They took the lifeless body of Jesus off the cross, prepared it in customary Jewish fashion, and placed it in a tomb with a heavy stone and Roman guard. However, on the third day Jesus' disciples came to continue their mourning and found the tomb empty! Jesus Christ had done what none of us could do, defeat death. He paid for sin and came out the other side alive! There is no other person in history that can say the same. It was not by human power that this was accomplished, but by the power of God.
