~*The Uniqueness of Christianity*~

Religion says "DO." Christianity says "DONE."
Religion says, "Do lots of nice things so hopefully, maybe, possibly God can accept you into heaven."
Jesus says, "ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. That's why I died for you, so that you can know for sure you will have eternal life..." ↓↓
WHY? Because He loves us. It should've been should've been us dying on that cross. Jesus said I LOVE I died INSTEAD of you.
HOW? We can't do anything to earn eternal life. Jesus said, "It is finished." And He meant that. All you need to do is accept His free gift of salvation...which is not earned by your own merits, but by Jesus' sacrifice alone!
YES, He died. BUT...He didn't stay dead!
IF Jesus remained in the grave...we have nothing. Absolutely nothing. We wouldn't have a reason to live life. However, three days later, He arose and lives victoriously!! We have hope just because He lives.
THIS is the uniqueness of Christianity. All the other "gods, good teachers/prophets, etc..." are in the grave.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!
Happy Resurrection Day!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
