John 1:29; Hebrews 9:11-14; 1 Peter 1:17-20; 1 John 2:1-2; 4:9-10
Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.
God provides a way for His people, the Israelites to have freedom from the Egyptians and He also provides a way for them to be saved from the angel of death. This story reveals the way in which God provides a substitute for all people through His Son, Jesus. Death passes over all those who place a saving faith in Jesus, just as death passed over the Israelites who placed the blood of a sacrificed lamb over their doorposts.
God Is Satisfied – God Gives A Substitute
God is holy and just. Everything He does is right and good. In His holiness and justice, He must punish injustice. His righteous wrath (anger against sin) must be satisfied. Sin and rebellion cannot be ignored or looked over. It must be dealt with, and we as guilty sinners deserve God’s wrath to be poured out on us. Thankfully, God, in His mercy, chose to forgive us. The only way He could do this was by punishing Jesus in our place. He sent His Son to be a substitute for our sin in order to rescue us. Jesus bore the punishment that we deserve.
