Matthew 1:21; John 3:16; Galatians 4:4-5; 1 Timothy 1:15; 1 John 4:9, 14
He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Because we are sinners, we need someone to rescue us from our sin. We cannot save ourselves. We see an example of this in Mark 2, when a paralytic’s friends bring him to Jesus. Jesus sees their faith and he heals the paralyzed man both spiritually and physically. The paralytic needed rescue, and he couldn’t do anything to help himself out of his condition. This is how we are in our sin, but Jesus is our Rescuer.
Thankfully, God does not just leave us in the broken world, but is repairing the brokenness through His Son. From the very beginning of time, God promised He would fix creation, and He kept His promise by sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus came to live on the earth and willingly died on the cross so that sin’s power over creation would be broken forever.
