This love was revealed when Jesus Christ, the Son of God came into the world as a human being, lived a sinless life, died on the cross and was raised from the dead. Christ died so that you can find forgiveness for your sins, and because he conquered death you too can have eternal life. You can know for sure what will become of you after you die.
