live a good life?

Because it is not about how you live your life –

it is about Him living the perfect life, and sacrificing that perfect life to pay for the debt and punishment we all have incurred by sin.  You cannot live a good life, neither can I…though I thought I had….
Glad He did.  Do you know Him?
Romans 3:23  “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Romans 6:23a  “…The wages of sin is death…”

Romans 6:23b  “…But the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” 

Romans 5:8,  “God demonstrates His own love for us, in
that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us!”
Romans 10:13  “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord  will be saved!”  
Romans 10:9,10  “…If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting  in salvation.”
