The Epic Love Story

Why did God create mankind?
He didn’t NEED us.
He created us because He wanted us.
We were designed for relationship with Him.
Humanity messed it all up when we listened to
the sly & deceitful words of God’s enemy.
“Did God really say…?” (Genesis 3)
God still wants to have a relationship with us…
even after the separation our sin caused.
Justice demands payment for sin…
God willingly paid the debt we had no hope of repaying.
“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.”
He paid the price because he loves us.
“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.”
1 John 3:16
People say, “If you love me, you will do this for me.”
God says, “I love you. I did this for you.”
