Through Jesus’s Death, Atonement Took Place

Jesus came into this world to save us from our sins. This act of love took place the moment He was raised up on the cross at Calvary. Many people believe that this was the saddest time in history, for the Savior of the world was condemned to death and died. However, we know as Christians, that Jesus’s death on the cross brings us true hope for tomorrow. This is because He paid the penalty for our sins, which we could not do on our own. His blood was shed much like the animals of the past. In death is when atonement took place in the Old Covenant, and now in the New with Jesus ending these sacrificial offerings with His own death. Paul wrote, “for when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” (Romans 5:6-9) Allow Jesus’s blood to cover you, and you will be forgiven.

We are all born into sin because of Adam’s transgression. This is the reason why a sacrificial offering was necessary for the sins of the people in the Old Covenant, as well as a more perfect sacrifice with Jesus in the New Covenant. Thankfully, our Lord Jesus did come, for His atonement has ended the need for any other sacrifice for sins. Only a spotless lamb could do this, and Jesus is that lamb, the Lamb of God, and perfect in every way. Therefore, give Jesus thanks for atoning for your sins. Through His death on the cross, atonement was made for mankind. It is written, “for if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.” (Romans 5:10-12) Remember what Jesus did for mankind, while admitting that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior. Amen.

Let us pray:
Thank You Jesus for coming into the world in order to save us from our sins. Our lives are covered in sin and would stay this way if You had not paid the penalty for our sins while on the cross. Thank You, Lord, for paying off our debts in full, although we don’t deserve it. It is wonderful to remember Your death, burial, and resurrection. This is the gospel message, which I am grateful to share with as many people as would have ears to ear. It is my prayer that people will turn from their sins and to You, no matter the life they are living now. Help them understand that no matter how big our sins are, nothing is too big for Your mercy to cover us and make us whole. I am grateful that You shed Your blood for us, ending the need for more sacrificial offerings. Truly, only the lamb of God could do this. You are the Lamb that has the power to open scrolls upon Your return also. I long for that day. The day I will see You, Jesus, in all Your glory, coming in the clouds. Take me away to live for You, Lord. Raise me up on the day to life eternal. I love You, Jesus. I give You my life and my everything. Amen.
