Jesus Never Sinned

Did you realize that Jesus never sinned in any way? There are many, including some of His followers, who believe that Jesus was just another imperfect human being. That’s not true! He never sinned. This is what the apostle Peter wrote in 1 Peter 2:22 (NLT):

He never sinned,
nor ever deceived anyone.

There are two truths you need to know based on this verse. First, because Jesus never sinned, He was the perfect, unblemished sacrifice who could take away our sins once and for all. When Jesus went to the cross, He was an acceptable and pleasing sacrifice to God the Father for our sins. If Jesus had sinned, He could not have taken our sins away.
Second, Jesus never lied. Here’s the good news about that truth: He still doesn’t. Jesus’ promises are as true now as they ever were. When He says He will be with us, it’s true. When He says He will forgive us, it’s true. When He says He will come back to take us to live with Him forever, it’s true. Jesus is Truth. He never lied and He still doesn’t. We can count on our perfect Savior to keep His word and to keep His promises.
