"He Did It For Us"
Part 2
By Joan A Deering


After God created our world sin came into it in the Garden of Eden through Adam and Eve as a result of believing Satan[i] rather than God[ii].

The verses below tell of how God gave humanity a way to salvation through faith in the gift of His Son, Jesus. So, now we can be redeemed, bought back from the penalty and guilt of sin, as a result of Jesus dying for us on the cross. Anyone who believes in Him, and what He did by paying for all sin… past, present and future… will be His child forever! This means that Jesus’ death on the cross is the way we can have eternal life through God’s grace.  Why would He do this? Because He loves us!  Wow!

Romans 3:23-24
23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.

John 3:16-17
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

Romans 5:6-9
6 For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.
