"Most of this world knows that Jesus gave His life on the cross as a sacrifice, but they don't understand why. It was a legal transaction. We have violated God's Law through lying, stealing, blasphemy, lust, adultery, hatred, fornication, selfishness, etc. That Law shows that we are guilty criminals standing before the Judge of the Universe. We are heading for God's prison--a terrible place called "Hell." The gospel tells us that Jesus paid our fine through His sacrifice on the cross. That means because of the suffering death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, God can legally dismiss our case. He can commute our death sentence and let us live upon our repentance and faith in Jesus, because our "fine" was paid 2,000 years ago. This is how the Bible puts it: "But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us" (Romans 5:8, Amplified Bible).

There's the evidence of His love. It's up to you and me to believe it."
