Motivated by love, God sent Jesus to provide the free gift of eternal life. And that eternal life is more than living forever. The Bible makes it clear that everyone will live forever … no one will be extinguished. What is God’s gift of eternal life? Jesus defined it as, “This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” John 17:3. His gift of eternal life is a personal relationship with Him … one that continues into eternity. But if we refuse His gift, we will suffer His wrath, John 3:36 … and we will be separated from Him forever, 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9.
Why did God send Jesus to us? God sent Him because He loves us and because He wants to give the gift of eternal life to us … a relationship with Him for all of eternity.
