Substitution

Description

God permitted His Son to take the death sentence sin had imposed on us. He became our substitute and took on our sentence.

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10

When Nixon aide Chuck Colson was convicted of Watergate-related crimes, his family was already in crisis and Colson grieved over being removed from them to serve prison time. Colson had recently become a Christian and was part of a group of other government officials who followed Christ. Minnesota Governor Al Quie offered to serve Colson’s time in prison. The law wouldn’t allow it. But it was a different case when Christ presented Himself to take your penalty and mine. God permitted His Son to take the death-sentence sin had imposed on us. He became our substitute and took on our sentence.
