John 3

God’s gift is my only lift to heaven.

Hey, did you know God has a gift for you? John 3:16 is probably the best and most famous one-verse summary of God’s gift in the Bible. In fewer than 30 words we see and feel his deep desire for all people everywhere to live with him forever after we die. God loves us too much to let us miss out on heaven, so he sent us a gift. That gift is a person—God’s own Son, Jesus, who died on the cross for our sins. All we have to do is believe in Jesus and reach out to accept him like a gift. He’s better than any other gift we could ever get. Will you receive God’s gift right now? Please do. Jesus, God’s gift, is your only lift to heaven.

Luke 24

Luke 24

Give me five—he’s alive!

“He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead!” Those are some of the most exciting words in the Bible. God won! He defeated death! Jesus took on Satan and his entire army and came back a triumphant champion. Because of Jesus’ resurrection—his coming back to life from the dead—we too will one day have life after death. And right now, this resurrection power is what makes us clean from our sin. But that’s not all. Because Jesus lives, we, as his followers, have his same resurrection power in us. This power gives us a supernatural desire to learn about God from his Word and to live the way he wants us to. And we have the power to experience God’s love, joy, and peace in our heart. So give me five—he’s alive!

The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ

Jesus suffered terrible pain for the sins of the world. He was beaten, mocked, and forced to wear a crown of thorns. When he was completely worn out, he had to carry his own cross to the place where he was nailed to it. But greater than the physical pain was the spiritual pain he went through as he took the blame for our sins. By taking our sins onto himself, he was separated from his Father for the first time. It was more painful than anything he’d ever experienced. But he did it so we could become part of God’s family. It was a strange but wonderful moment in history. Here the one true Boss of the universe suffered on a cross made by people he himself had created. Now that’s love. True love.
