Jesus Paid The Price For You

Why did Lord Jesus Christ come into this world? Because He loves us so much and would not want His children to perish but become heirs of His kingdom. When man sinned, humanity became liable for eternal damnation. However, God sent His only Son Jesus Christ, to save us from perishing. Our Lord Jesus intervened and sacrificed His life for us by undergoing the horrible death on the cross. He took away all our sins, shame and curse so that we can have eternal life. Therefore, we are saved not of our benevolent deeds, but by the sheer Grace of God.

In Chennai, a research institute was able to discover the medicine for venom fever. They first injected the poisonous chemical into a horse which would bring a fever. However, to arrest the viral infection, an antibody would be formed in the horse. After a few quality checks, these antibodies were administered to the patients. This medicine worked, and people were cured of the ailment.

Similarly, God Almighty placed all our iniquities and transgressions on Jesus. Lord Jesus became sin for our sake. Jesus died the shameful death on the cross all because He wanted to set us free from the bondage of the evil one. The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin. Our Lord Jesus had never committed any sin, though He was tempted (Matthew 4:1-11) yet He did not give into it. He paid the price so that we can be ‘righteous’ before God.
SCRIPTURE to LIFE

Our Lord Jesus died on the cross for you. He took your curse, your sins, your pain all upon Himself to set you free from the bondage of the evil one. Therefore, when you accept Lord Jesus into your life, He promises to dwell with you and never leave you! You are Christ’s righteousness in the Lord. Because of Christ’s sacrifice, you are free from your sins and you are healed of your sickness. If you are thinking the Lord doesn’t love you and condemns you for your sins, I want to encourage you that you belong to Christ because you have been bought with a price (1 Corinthians 6:20). He loves you just the way you are. Although you may have gone astray, yet the Lord waits for you with open arms to return to Him. If you are going through tough times in your life, do not complain or murmur against God. He will surely deliver you from all the problems.  You merely have to wait patiently at the feet of the Lord. Place your trust in the Lord and claim His promises over your life.
Prayer:
Loving Heavenly Father, I humbly come before You and repent for all my transgressions. I thank you for the sacrifice You made for me. Grant me Your grace to follow Your statutes and lead a cautious life. May my life be pleasing and acceptable in Your sight.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
