WHY DID JESUS DIE ON THE CROSS

Jesus Christ was the Son of God who came to this earth. For thousands of years before He came, mankind had lived on the earth; and they, like all of us, had sinned and continually done and thought things that are wrong. The penalty of sin is death. Man tried to overcome sin by their own efforts, but none could become perfect.
Each day I notice the fingerprints of God around me. I see it in the sunrise or feel it in the warmth of my blankets on a cold winter night. Sometimes I see it in the rain and even the way a cup of coffee tastes. Why? Because these momentary pleasures are gifts. Each whisper of the essence of what eternity will be like with God. Had Jesus not died on the cross, these little moments would be empty distractions instead of eternal promises. The cross echoes the stories of what Jesus did for us. But some ask, “Why?” Why did Jesus have to die on the cross?

Why Did Jesus Die

In Scripture, we discover that Jesus’ death was no accident. He was not the victim of circumstances beyond His control. Rather, Jesus intentionally laid His life down to save His people from their sins
In the four gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, we see Jesus intentionally going to Jerusalem even though He knew that it would result in His death. You could even say that Jesus was born in the shadow of the cross. He was born so that He could die.
(Mark 10:32-34)
Jesus makes it very clear to His disciples that His death is necessary

Why Was it Necessary for Jesus to Die

Without the atoning sacrifice of Jesus, we would be without hope and without forgiveness. (Isaiah 64:6) teaches us even our righteous acts are like filthy rags. Even on our best days and with our best intentions, without the blood of Jesus, we would deserve death as the punishment for sin. “He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed” (Isaiah 55:6). We did nothing to earn our forgiveness and everything to deserve punishment. But in God’s great love for us, He sent His son and took our punishment upon Himself.
