Isaiah 53:5-6; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Romans 5:6-11; 8:1-4; 1 Peter 2:22-24; 3:18; 1 John 2:1-2; 4:9-10
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
Our sin required a blood sacrifice as payment. Prior to the coming of Jesus, God’s people made animal sacrifices to atone for their sins as they looked toward the coming of Jesus. After Jesus came, He fulfilled God’s requirement for a blood sacrifice and paid for our sin completely. He is the perfect and good sacrifice for our sin. He is our substitute.
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.
