You Can't Have Forgiveness Without This…

Description

Jesus died to do the will of his Father. He shed His blood to forgive your sins. There was no other way.

Why did Jesus have to die? He is the Son of God. He has all authority on earth and in heaven. Yet, he died a cruel and excruciating death? Why?

The answer is found in Hebrews 9:22.

“Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins.”

This verse answers the why of the cross. If Christ had not shed His blood, there would be no forgiveness of sins.

But Jesus did die. He did shed his blood. In his blood is the forgiveness of sins. And, in Christ, you already have it. The death of Jesus Christ is the way of forgiveness.

What can we take from this? First, God desires to forgive. He doesn’t want you to face the judgment and the penalty your sins deserve. Second, Christ was willing to carry out the desire of his Father. Consider these words, “Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God, as it is written of me in the scroll of the book'” (Hebrews 10:7).

Jesus died to do the will of his Father. He shed His blood to forgive your sins. There was no other way.

When you struggle, remember that Christ shed his blood for you. This means your sins are forgiven. The cross of Christ is the way of forgiveness. Commit Hebrews 9:22 to memory, note it in your Bible, and open your heart to the truth in this powerful verse:

“Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins.”
