He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness; you have been healed by His wounds.
1 Peter 2:24 HCSB
Jesus died for us; plain and simple. Jesus died so that we may live; live not an earthly life, but an eternal heavenly life with God. Through His suffering and death, our sins are healed; all we have to do is ask for Jesus to lead us in life, profess our sins and ask for forgiveness, and declare that Jesus is our Lord and Saviour.
