He himself is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2
For all our offenses, Jesus came. Our debt has been covered. As I reflect on this verse I can think about the guilt many can have from past sin. Thankfully our advocate we have is Jesus who tells us He came and suffered for the sins of our past, present, and future. The debt he paid was for you, me, and everyone. One day when we come face to face with him we can wrap our arms around Him and thank Him as he welcomes us home.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins 1 John 4:10
Jesus ever lives to make intercession for those that come to believe in God through him. We are all sinners in need of a savior. The price has already been paid. It can be hard to forgive yourself, it can even be harder to forgive others at times. Still, all the sins of all the people paid in full by Jesus, our atoning sacrifice. No one is beyond forgiveness.
Thank you for sending your son Jesus to be the atoning sacrifice for us. The sacrifice he made for all of us we didn’t deserve, still, he submitted himself for us paying off all our debts. God, I pray for those who don’t know you and understand the forgiveness promised we help share this truth. Help us to continue to turn from sin and when we do fall short turn to you for forgiveness. God help us to commit our heart to you and not to ourselves or this world.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give his life as a ransom for many. Mark 10:45
