He Died on the Cross

Jesus is also called the "Christ," which means "the anointed one." God anointed Jesus to be King, Prophet, and Priest, to rule in the hearts of men, proclaim the message of salvation, and offer himself as a sacrifice for mankind.

Jesus' mission was to save humanity from sin. In order to do that, he died in our place. He was sentenced to be crucified to die a slow and painful death. Though he had the power to destroy the whole world, he willingly laid down his life. On the cross, he became a sinner, bearing the sin of the whole world and suffering God's rejection. Though we deserve to be punished, the Lord Jesus took up our punishment. Because he, the righteous, died for the ungodly, whoever believes in Jesus today may have eternal life. He is the bridge by which we may reach the shores of Heaven. He is the Savior of the world. Through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, we can receive eternal life and escape the fires of hell.

The story of Jesus on the cross is the greatest story of love. It is the story of the Creator dying for his creatures. "God shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). From kings to slaves, from the educated to the illiterate, from the old to the young, from developed countries to primitive tribes, this true story of love has been told over and over again, and it is still being told today.
