Christ Died For Our Sins

Confucius, Buddha, Muhammad—and many more extraordinary sages who influenced the world civilization with their religious ethics have left their followers with a unsure future about their eternity by never giving them an answer to the sin problem of their lives which is the greatest dilemma for all humans. Jesus is the only one in all the whole world who said that He will die for his followers sins and will rise up the third day on account of their justification before God (Luke 24:7; Rom 4:25). According to His word Jesus rose up and is alive for evermore thus proving that all His followers are justified before God as if they have never sinned at all.

The one main reason why all the religions of the world and its founders pales and fades before the unique Jesus and His message is because they only showed the way to live a good life to please God, but only Jesus could say, "I am the way, the truth and the life." (John 14:6) to reach and experience God, which no other man on this earth have claimed. Jesus is as much our sacrifice as He is our Savior (Heb 10:10-14; 9:26-28). As a Creator of all of us, only the wounded Saviour could have the privilege to die for his creation or else Rama, Sita and all tales of avatars could have been made a message of salvation. No human could save another one except Jesus, because He had no sin nature to taint him.

We as believers in Jesus not only have a unique message in all the world, but the only unique Savior who can save all humans alike. God himself has declared, "...And there is no other God besides Me, a just God and a Savior; There is none besides Me." (Isa 45:21). Only a just God could justify people and save them. By allowing his sinless only begotten Son to die on behalf of all of us who believe Him, God has shown that He is just and is the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus (Rom 3:26). The good news is that God in His loving tolerance and restraint for our sins has passed over all of our sins previously committed to demonstrate to us how we can never be righteous by our good works except through faith in the shed blood of Jesus by which we find forgiveness and mercy for all our sins (Rom 3:25). JESUS DID NOT DIE BECAUSE OF HIS OWN FAULT, BUT FOR OUR SINS SO THAT WE COULD LIVE WITH GOD IN PEACE AND FRIENDSHIP FOR THE REST OF OUR LIFE THROUGH ETERNTIY. SHALOM!

"Even the vilest sinner is made a righteous saint instantly before God when he believes Jesus to have died for all his sins." — Abraham Israel
