The death of Christ

Do you know why Christ had to die?

 Life

Two kinds of life, physical and spiritual, life started at the creation Gen 1,2&3 God did not intend to have a creation that did not contain life. After he formed man, he breathed into us the breath of life and we became a living soul. The life we live in the flesh will determine how we live in eternity. Gal 2:20; Tit 2:12; Rom 12:1-2; Christ had to die to attone our sins, in that we could not get forgiveness on our own  Jas 1;12-15  The reason he had to die was what we find in Rom 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" also, the familure passage John 3:16 and Rom 5:8 Christ was not at fault because he died, but without his death, we all would be doomed to hell.

The Church

The church was created by Jesus as the second step of life, Mt 16:18; before it could be established, Christ had to die to disolve the Old Testament, Col 2:12-15; he had to die so his church could be established so we could have a way of salvation, to get into his church, we too have to die to the old life of sin through,  hearing his word, Rom 10:17; believing his word, Mk 16:16; Heb 11:6; repenting of our sins, Lk 13:3; burry the old man of sin in baptism, Gal 2:20; Rom 6:3,4; then we begin to live this new life until eternity  Rev 2:10

Eternity

Eternity is described in the bible as a place without end, Rev 14:11; a life forever with God and Christ; 1 Jn 2:25; Heb 5:8,9; Rom  10:9,10; God did not want anyone to loose their soul  2 Pet 3:9 eternity was made by God for us, we choose the way we go, Matt 7:13-14

The death of Christ was essential for us to live!!!
