Only Jesus

The question remains, “How can God be just-that is, true to Himself in nature and true to Himself in holiness-and yet justify the sinner?” Because each man had to bear his own sins, all mankind was excluded from helping, since each was contaminated with the same disease. The only solution was for an innocent party to volunteer to die physically and spiritually as a substitution before God. This innocent party would have to take man’s judgment, penalty, and death. But where was such an individual? Certainly, there was none on earth. There was only one possibility. God’s own Son was the only personality in the universe who had the capacity to bear in His own body the sins of the world. Only God’s Son was infinite and thus able to die for all.

Prayer for the day

Lord Jesus, Lamb of God, in adoration I thank You for the love that made You willing to suffer and die on the cross for my sin.

    I’m very grateful for Billy Graham. I am now 58 years old and when I was in 6th grade we went to BG Crusade in Anaheim, CA @ Angel’s stadium.. I accepted the Lord, when I went forward. He helped me survive a traumatic childhood and life! Praise the Lord for blessing this world and my life with Billy Graham!

God is in control…all the time…God is our friend…all the time…Happy Sunday, my friends in Christ!

    Hence Jesus being our “scapegoat” (Lev.16) – He took upon Himself our sins and died outside the gate! Thank You, LORD!
