15 Apr Romans 6:23
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Why did Jesus have to die? Why couldn’t God just say, “You are forgiven”? God is just and requires due payment for sin. To simply forgive sin without requiring a payment would be unjust. According to God’s Word, the payment of sin is death. But not only is God just, He is also loving. That is why Jesus was willing to die in our place. He loved us. Think about His love.
Tomorrow is Resurrection Sunday. We hope to see you at church to celebrate together. HE IS RISEN!
