What's the best news you've ever heard?
The message at the heart of Christianity is pretty simple.
What is Christianity?
Who Is Jesus?
He’s the Christ
The King who God himself had promised to send, who would put everything right by setting up a kingdom of justice and love. He’s also the Son of God. God himself, entering the world as a human being.
Jesus proved who he was by what he did
Why did Jesus come?
To be rejected
To be killed
People rejected the King so violently that they killed him by nailing him to a cross. But his death wasn’t a mistake by God – it was a masterstroke. On the cross, Jesus was cut off from God’s friendship and goodness. He chose to experience hell – so that we don’t have to. The sinless King died to take the punishment sin deserves. Jesus was opening the way into his kingdom.
To rise again
What does it mean for us?
So, today, right now, Jesus is inviting people to come into his kingdom
He tells us to repent and believe the good news. Repent means to turn around, to live with Jesus in charge instead of ourselves. Believe means to trust that Jesus has done everything we need to give us a place in his kingdom.
Living with Jesus as King isn’t easy
