No One Else Like Jesus

Jesus suffered and died on the cross. Why? Why would He endure such a thing as the excruciating pain of crucifixion. The word “excruciating” literally means “out of the cross.” It was a word invented to describe the pain of crucifixion. Why would the perfect Son of God willingly go through the cross? Peter writes:

“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 25 For “you were like sheep going astray,” but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. – 1 Peter 2:24-25 (NIV)

Through the death and subsequent resurrection of Jesus, we are set free from the power of sin. We are healed by His wounds. We are able to return to a right relationship with God. We no longer live for sin, but we live for Jesus. We find rest and hope and joy and peace through Him. We find our true home in Him. We can live the life we long to live through Jesus. No one else is like Him.

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.
