God so loved us he sent his only Son, Jesus, to die on a cross for our sins so if we believe we will not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16-17. Easter always reminds me that there really is a hell and I belonged there when I die. But God loved me and sent Jesus to pay the price for my sin. Jesus would not have suffered and been killed on a cross if he wasn’t saving me from something real as hell. But more importantly, he saved me to something equally real. My citizenship is in heaven.
