He Carried Our Sins

Jesus went to the cross and suffered and died as the perfect sacrifice for our sins. He not only carried the cross, but Peter says that He actually carried our sins. He wrote in 1 Peter 2:24 (NLT):

He personally carried our sins
in his body on the cross
so that we can be dead to sin
and live for what is right.
By his wounds
you are healed.

Sin no longer has mastery over us. We don’t have to be slaves to sin any more. Will we still sin? Yes we will. Will God still forgive us? Yes He will. We may think that we are powerless against temptation and sin. That’s not true! God gives us the power to resist the temptation to do the wrong things and to do the right things instead. Jesus carried all of our sins to the cross and when He died, so did our sins. We have been healed and made whole by the scars in His hands and feet. He conquered sin and the grave to free us from sin’s power and the power of the grave. Live in that power today!
