“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
We have all sinned against God and are therefore eternally separated from him. However, God loves us so much that he sent his Son, Jesus, to pay the punishment for our sins through his atoning death on the cross. He rose from the dead three days later, making forgiveness and reconciliation with God possible. When you repent (turn away) from your sins and place your faith in Jesus, believing that he has personally paid the punishment for your sins, then you will be forgiven and brought into a loving relationship with God that will last throughout eternity.
