Jeus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave! He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people.
The Bible says:
"For there is only one God and one mediator who can reconcile God and people. He is the man Christ Jesus."
1 Timothy 2:5 (NLT)
"Christ also suffered when he died for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners that he might bring us safely home to God." 1 Peter 3:18 (NLT)
"But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners." Romans 5:8 (NLT)
