We were created to please God but our sinful nature made us away from the Lord. Still, God loves us and sent Jesus to redeem us from eternal condemnation.
As long as we will be on this earth we need to do good works because one day we all have to give the accounts to the Lord.
Jesus confirmed that we are very precious in God’s eyes and he thinks for us. To give us eternal life he took the form of human flesh and suffered unto death. Thus he proved that he loves us and values us (Ephesians 2:10).
