Jesus Christ came to this earth for the purpose of fulfilling the will of the Father, which was to bridge the gap between Himself and mankind. But the problem was that men were all sinners separated from God and until that sin was dealt with that gap would not be bridged. So that’s why Jesus came, to pay for our sin. He said in Luke 19:10, “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
So, praise the Lord when we put our faith in the fact that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all our sins and we believed, we received forgiveness of those sins and in that moment we were born again. God’s Spirit came to live inside of us and we were regenerated, redeemed, and justified. This is a free gift that we do not deserve; this is the love, mercy, and grace of Almighty God.
What a good thing to remember today, and a great thing to share with someone who is still separated from God.
