The greatest story ever told

The greatest story ever told is how an Almighty God came down to earth, lived a perfect life, and offered Himself as a sacrifice for the sins of the whole world (past, present, and future). This is what the Easter weekend represents. There is a penalty for sin which must be paid. Jesus paid that penalty with his life. Those that confess that Jesus took their place and put their trust in Him will receive a pardon from sin, peace with God, and a prepared home in heaven.

Because God is so righteous, He cannot have unrighteousness near Him.

Because God is so holy, sin cannot come before Him.

Because I can be biased, I am unrighteous.

Because I am human, I have sinned.

Because God is so merciful, He provided a scapegoat to take my place.

Because God is loving, He placed my unrighteousness and sin upon Himself and died on the cross.

Because God is gracious, He offers a pardon to all those who trust in Him.
