Gospel Love of God

Why Christianity is True 2

Scripture is replete of one theme: a huge number of diverse people will come together in unity around Jesus.

Further, I have written about sin and sin’s punishment a few times before.

Sin demands a payment

It is Jesus Who pays the penalty of the sin of all who believe in Him (John 3:16; Romans 6:23).

Because of sin, particularly in the Old Testament, God allowed lambs to be sacrificed so that the people’s sin was covered even though the lamb’s blood could never take away the sin (Hebrews 10:4).

Nothing and No one else could pay sin’s penalty except Jesus

The Apostle Paul tells us,

For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,” ~1 Timothy 2:5.

The writer to the Hebrews explains, “Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.” And the writer says, ” to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

Jesus is the Great Mediator Between God and Man

This means, in large part, Jesus is the only way to forgiveness of sins and the great salvation which sets us free unto freedom– Freedom from sin and guilt.
