6th letter about the Good News, using the Relational Diagram
He loved us very deeply, you and me, all of us, to suffer like this. He didn’t have to do this – it was love that gave him the courage to die for us. Jesus experienced the punishment of hell for us, in our place, so we could have a way to escape.
This is an amazing kind of love! Our world has never seen anything like it. Jesus cares so much for you and me, for everyone. It was very bad news for him, to go through this awful suffering and death. But it is very good news for us, that someone loves us, (name). And someone took our place, to be punished and die.
But there’s more to God’s love! That’s good news for you and me. It’s the best part of Jesus’ story: he came alive again!
