Death on a Cross With an Everlasting Gift (John 19)
Do you want to live forever? I am sure we all would say that we do! There is only one way to heaven and that is through the Son of God, Jesus Christ. His death upon a cross created the pathway for us to take in being able to get to to heaven. If it were up to us alone we all would deserve death and, as much as it sounds terrible...Hell. The good thing is that Jesus suffered for our sake. He died upon a cross as an innocent man in order to cleanse us all of our sins. Thank God for this sacrifice, because I am certain no one wanted the alternative.
