Psalm 139:13 -14, 17 -18, NIV
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.”

We were all created in God’s image but man fell , and we are all born into sin. The wages of sin is death (aka hell, eternity away from God). So sin leads unto death. But God loves us so much, he sent his son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.
Jesus cancelled our debt – He took our place! God longs to reconcile us back to himself. When we come to God through Jesus Christ, seeking him with sincere hearts, confessing our sins and turning away from our past, he forgives us, and we start afresh. We begin a relationship with God, finding joy & peace in Him. We have the assurance of eternal life (aka heaven, eternity with God). We show our love to God by loving others, glorifying God and by doing what pleases him, i.e. seeking God’s approval, pleasing God, and putting God first in all we do.

Col 2:13-14 “You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.” (NLT)
