“Christ Jesus died once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring us to God.” 1 Peter 3:18
We just celebrated Jesus’ birth, but here we are talking about His coming death. In reality, the two go together, because dying to take the punishment for the sins of the whole human race was the plan. Jesus came to die for us. Jesus was born to die. He did, and then He was gloriously raise to life again and ascended into heaven. He lives — forever.
