Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Man is not now nor has he ever been able to keep the whole law. The Bible tells us that we have all sinned and that none of us are righteous. God is a Righteous God and He demanded punishment for sin. "The wages of sin is death."
Jesus took our punishment in His own body and shed His blood to pay for the sins of the world. He was perfect yet the Bible says he became the sacrifice for our sins, he took the punishment and offered His own blood as a sacrifice for our sins.
This may be difficult for us to understand but what it really means is that Jesus took the punishment we deserved and offers us salvation if we believe Him and accept Him as our Lord and Savior.
There are lot of things you might be able to do without but if you are planning on spending eternity in Heaven you must have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God.
