By His Wounds We Are Healed

"He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed." - 1 Peter 2:24

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemn already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God." - John 3:16-18

Without Christ the whole world would be condemned, because of our sin and rebellion towards God. But God loved us so much that even though we all have sinned against Him, He sent Christ so that we might all have chance to be saved. We are saved by admitting we are sinners, believing that Christ is Lord, and committing ourselves to Him. I am so thankful for such an awesome God that has forgiven me of all my sins, and I pray that each day God will help me grow closer to Him and to become more like Christ!

"Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved." - Romans 10:9-10
