Everyone comes into the world as a sinner and the Bible says that the punishment for our sin is death and hell. So, what can man do to change his plight? Nothing…man can’t give enough or be good enough. So how does man deal with his sin problem? In his own power, man can’t fix his sin problem. But man doesn’t have to, because Jesus has done it for us.
The apostle Paul said, “For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them.” When Jesus died on the cross, He took all the sin of mankind upon His body. He then paid the price for man’s sins and makes it possible for man to be reconciled to God. To be reconciled to God means to be made right with God.
You and I could not reconcile ourselves but, we don’t have to. Jesus has done it for us.
Today, be thankful for reconciliation…we are now right with God.
