Everyone faces eternal death and judgment. Nothing less than perfection in thought, word, action, even motive can fix the problem. So who can rescue us? Only God. Jesus claimed to be God and the only Way a person can be made right with God again. He came to earth, fulfilled all of God’s laws by His life, and received all the punishment of our sin by His death. But then He came back to life as proof of His claims. His life and death are now a substitute for anyone who trusts in Him. Jesus did everything required for salvation. Nothing we do—good deeds, religious duties, etc—can be added to His perfection.
