50 Word Gospel

Recently, KidTech Blog posted a challenge – Can you convey the gospel in 50 words.  The original story can be found here.

I thought it sounded like fun, so here is my shot at it:

God created man.  We all have sinned against God, fall short of God’s standard, and deserve the punishment of death.  But, Jesus came to Earth as a man, died on the cross for my sins, and rose again to reconcile me to God forever.  Our job is to honor God!

OK, your turn!  Give it a shot.  It’s harder than it looks!  Leave a comment with your version.  I can’t wait to read them!
