What Did Jesus Do?
When Jesus died on the cross, all our sin was laid on Him. All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way, and the Lord has laid on him (Jesus) the iniquity of us all (Isaiah 53:6). God hates our sins but because of His love for us, He has placed them ALL on His Son. Christ bore our sins in His body on the cross. When He cried, "It is finished", He announced that He had paid the price for our forgiveness in full. He died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins in our place and to purchase a place in Heaven for us. He was buried and our sin was buried with Him.
On the third day He rose from the dead and is alive forevermore! He now offers you the gift of eternal life that He purchased through His death.
