His Death Brought Us Back to God
“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.” – Ephesians 2:4-7
It was God’s will for Jesus to live on earth and die a physical death. And through his death, we reestablished our relationship with God.
God’s promise of life everlasting, or eternal life, comes from the shed blood of Jesus.
