The Death of Jesus Christ

Was for You and Me!


Jesus did not die to give us Christmas, Easter, something to do on Sundays, or to promote a PASSION movie on His suffering. His death accomplished the greatest events in the history of our universe.

The Accomplishments of the Death of Christ:

1. Substitution,
a. Meaning: Christ died in the place of sinners.
b. Scriptures to consider: 2 Corinthians. 5:21; 1 Peter 3:18.
c. Results: (1) Sins are removed by Christís substitution.
                 (2) The righteousness of Christ is added to sinners.


2. Redemption.
a. Meaning: (1) To pay the ransom price
                   (2) To effect a full release
b. Scriptures to consider: 2 Peter 2:1; Matt. 20:28.
c. Results. Sin is paid for and the sinner (turned believer) is free from the consequences of sin.
 

3. Reconciliation,
a. Meaning: Man's state of alienation from God is changed so that he is able to be saved and to stand before God just as if he had never sinned.
b. Scriptures to consider: Romans 5:10; 2 Corinthians 5:19.
c. Results: Reconciliation with God has taken place because of Christ. Sinful man must accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour to be reconciled and thus saved.
 


4. Propitiation,
a. Meaning. God is satisfied with the death of Christ for sin.
b. Scriptures to consider: 1 John 2:2; Romans 1:18; Romans 3:25. 1 Thessalonians 1:10;
c. Results: The blood (death ) of Christ has satisfied the wrath of God. Sinful man can now be saved and freed from the wrath to come..


5. Judgement of the sin nature.
a. Meaning. The death of Christ made inoperative the reigning power of the sin.
b. Scriptures to consider: Romans 6:1-10, 14; Galatians 5:22; Ephesians 4:24-32
c. Results. The possibility of holy living through the reigning power of the Spirit is available to the believer. The availability of the Holy Spirit to allow believers to develop in the fruit of the Spirit and in Christian Character is GodĎs desire.

Godís gift to us is salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ. Wonít you accept Him today as your personal Lord and Saviour. He Loves you and desires the best for you in this life and in the life to come.
