he has set for our lives. Being like Christ and following his commands will lead us into eternal life just like you said and I agree with you 100%. Repenting and asking for forgiveness for the things we have done wrong will also give us the eternal life we long to have as well. Being in tuned with God and doing right in our lives is a major way to find eternal life as well. I agree! Jesus Resurrected to show that he died for our sins and they were washed away when he rose again to demonstrate that he would always do this for us even if that meant sacrificing his life to prove his promise. Yes, I feel the same way. Jesus’ crucifixion symbolized his human likeness and because of that people actually started to believe in him and pour their faith into him. His resurrection absolutely saved us and continues to save us because he made a promise to us when he died on that cross. Not believing in him after seeing and knowing that he died on a cross as a promise to cleanse all of our sins away is just crazy. I am excited about my afterlife because that means I get to be with and see the man who created me and be in his presence all the time! Agreed! The resurrection of Jesus proved a lot of things but proving that Jesus was here for a purpose and that purpose was to get them to believe and trust in God was the main reason he died on the cross. When people witnessed Jesus dying and being crucified and then rose again, as sad as this sounds, they started to believe and have faith in his teachings. Just like you said, if the resurrection of Jesus never happened then people would have put their faith and trust into nothing. Understanding the crucifixion and being able to witness it helps us know that Jesus would do anything for us even if that means sacrificing his own life.
