Since we are incapable of bridging the broken relationship with our Creator from our side of the separation, the only hope for us is that the Creator provides a solution from His side. Christians refer to this solution as the "Gospel" which means "good news." The "good news" is that God addressed the problem of sin by sending His son, Jesus to be the solution. We believe that Jesus was the complete embodiment of God and completely human. In other words, He was fully God and fully human. We believe that He experienced humanity fully (our hurt, our hunger, our feelings, our temptations, our desires, our joys, and our sorrows), He became one of us. He did what we could not, Jesus completely obeyed God, His father, that He fully trusted God, His father, and that He totally loved God, His father. Therefore, we believe that Jesus lived a fully human life without failure or sin, Jesus fully exceeded God's standards and embodied God's values. God was completely pleased and satisfied with Him. In addition to Jesus living a life without fault and meeting all of God's expectations, He choose to offer Himself and His life as a substitution for us (Substitutionary Atonement). Jesus who has no faults or failing, who met every expectation of God for humanity, freely offered Himself to be our substitution and receive our judgement (spiritual separation and physical death) from God. In essence, we believe that Jesus was willing to insert Himself in our place and experience the consequences of OUR sin. By doing so, He releases us from the ultimate consequences of our sin and flawed nature, we had a debt we could not pay. And because of His love for God and us, He paid a debt He did not owe.
