Why Did Jesus Die?

We know well the story of Jesus. For those of us who are followers, His death and subsequent resurrection is the most important event in our lives. The lord’s death is the payment for our sins. Our sin problem was a problem we couldn’t solve on our own. Ephesians 2:8-10 tell us, “by grace are you saved through faith and not of yourselves it is the gift of God.” Romans 5:6-8 says,”for when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man would dare to die, yet for a good man some would dare to die. God showed His love to us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for the ungodly.” Jesus died because we could not pay the sin payment. Christ had to die that we might live. As a result of grace given freely to us God paid the debt we could not pay. We could never do enough to earn our salvation. This is a gift given by the Lord to those who put their trust in His promises. Jesus died that we might be saved.
