John 3:30 serves a purpose statement for every believer: Jesus must increase, but I must decrease.
Because of Jesus, we no longer face the guilty verdict of our sin. We are no longer condemned to death, but we are free to live; all because of Christ.
The Easter story is the story of God's love, his generosity, and his desire to save the world. We live because Jesus rose again.
The good news of the Gospel is greater than our sin and anything we try to do or be to earn our salvation.
