He Came To Take Away Our Sin

Jesus never sinned in any way. It may seem hard to believe, but it’s true! John wrote:

Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness. 5 But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. – 1 John 3:4-5 (NIV)

Since Jesus never sinned, He was able to be the perfect, unblemished sacrifice for the sin of the world. As Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians:

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. – 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NIV)

Jesus came to take away our sin and to make us right with God. Since Jesus died for our sins, we are free from the consequences of our sin and lawlessness. We no longer stand condemned because of our sin, but instead, Jesus has set us free and we are free indeed. Live in that freedom today knowing that you have been forgiven.
