《圣经的故事1》WELL, when God made the world it was perfect in every way.And then Adam came along and ate the fruit God told him not to eat. Bad idea! At that moment God's perfect world wasn't perfect anymore. Adam decided to do things his way and not God's way, and that never works. Sin got in. And sin ruins everything.
We all do what we want to do instead of what God wants us to do. So we are in trouble! Sin is like a terrible disease, and we all are going to die from it.
God loves us so much, He sent His Son to make things right again.
《圣经的故事Ⅱ》AND we all sin. And that's what Jesus came to save us from!
And the price was very high. Sin brought death into God's perfect world. The only price to make it right again is for the guilty ones to die——and that's us.
But Jesus died FOR us. Jesus took the punishment we deserved. What amazing, awesome love that is!
