Jesus saves us from our sins and leads us into a new life. This salvation is the only way we can have a relationship with God.
But the problem that many people don’t understand is this: it’s not about being good. Good people don’t go to heaven, forgiven people go to heaven. And forgiveness is made possible by the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
For most people, choosing a certain faith is like choosing a flavor of ice cream — we pick what we like, what we are comfortable with, what suits our taste. That’s understandable, but it’s not very smart. The issue is not “What do I like?” or “How was I raised?” or “What makes me comfortable?” The issue is “What is true?”
And what is true is that Christianity is based upon the premise that God offers mercy, grace, and forgiveness to all. All are welcome. All get in the same way.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Believing in Jesus means placing your trust in the fact that Jesus is who he claimed to be and that his death and resurrection accomplished what he claimed it accomplished — salvation!
