Why Did Jesus Die?

(Taken from Dial-the-Truth Ministries)

The Presence of Sin . . .

When Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden, sin invaded the human race.

"Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, FOR THAT ALL HAVE SINNED:" Romans 5:12

". . . for there is no difference. FOR ALL HAVE SINNED, and come short of the glory of God;"
Romans 3:22b-23

"If we say that we have not sinned, WE MAKE HIM A LIAR, and his word is not in us." 1 John 1:10

"If we say that we have no sin, WE DECEIVE OURSELVES, and the truth is not in us." 1 John 1:8

The Penalty of Sin . . .

"For the wages of sin is DEATH; . . ." Romans 6:23a

Not just physical death, but something far more serious — SPIRITUAL DEATH — in hell!

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: WHICH IS THE SECOND DEATH." Revelation 21:8

The Payment of Sin . . .

To cover the sin of Adam and Eve, THE BLOOD of an innocent lamb was shed. (Gen. 3:21)

" . . . John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold THE LAMB of God, which TAKETH AWAY THE SIN of the world." John 1:29

Friend, Jesus Christ shed His blood on the cross to pay the penalty for YOUR sin!

"Who his own self bare OUR SINS in his own body on the tree,. . ." 1 Peter 2:24

" . . . Unto him that loved us, and washed us from OUR SINS in his own BLOOD," Revelation 1:5b

What can wash away my sin?


Not church membership, not sacrements, not baptism, not good works,

" . . . without shedding of BLOOD is no remission." Hebrews 9:22

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him." Romans 5:8-9

Friend, If you've never been saved, don't wait another minute?

You can be saved this very minute!

I reject Jesus Christ as my Savior.

I want to receive Jesus Christ as my Savior.

Did you know that in the NT the Lord Jesus Christ was called LORD more times than SAVIOUR? I wonder why?
I think that many people do not have a problem in seeing Jesus Christ as Saviour, but they do have a BIG PROBLEM in seeing Jesus Christ as LORD of their lifes.

I agree with Bro. Juan. People don't have a problem seeing Jesus as the Savior of the world. But most people aren't ready to let Him be Lord of their life!!
