Isaiah 53:4-6; Romans 8:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 2:22-24; 3:18; 1 John 4:9-10; Revelation 5:9
But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Paul sends a letter to Philemon and those gathered together for the sake of Christ requesting that they welcome Onesimus as a brother and not as a slave. Paul offers to pay any debt that Onesimus might owe Philemon and the church there even though Paul did not owe it himself. Jesus pays our sin debt even though He does not owe it.
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.
