God took the sinless Christ and poured into him your sins. Then, in exchange, he poured God’s goodness into you! 2 Corinthians 5:21 TLB (personalized)
Everyone has a spirit, soul and body. We are spiritual beings. Your spirit is deep inside you. With your spirit you connect to the spirit world. You have a soul that is made up of your mind, emotions and will. Your soul contains your personality and character and works as your ‘thinker’, your ‘feeler’ and your ‘chooser’. Your physical body houses your soul and spirit while you are living on earth.
In the first book of the Bible, Genesis chapter two, you can read how God created Adam, the first person in the human race. Rather than choosing to obey God, chapter three tells how Adam chose to believe the devil’s lie. When Adam obeyed the devil he became spiritually separated from God.
The Bible says because of Adam’s disobedience, a sinful nature has been passed on to every human. This means, when each of us are born physically we are spiritually separated from God by sin. This is why it is our human nature to sin (Romans 5:12).
To enable us to reconnect and have a personal relationship with God, the Bible tells us that God sent his Son, Jesus, to earth.
This is how God showed his love to us: He sent His one and only Son into the world so that we could have life through him. (1 John 4:9)
Jesus, who was without sin, died on the cross for the sins of the whole human race. He took the punishment of every man, woman, boy and girl’s sin on himself and gave them the ability to receive a new spiritual life.
Jesus took upon himself your sins and mine.
