I’m not perfect. But this is no excuse for my sin.
My sin is not excusable. I must be forgiven for my sin. I cannot simply say, “That’s because of who I am.” My excuses will not atone for my sin.
One atones for my sin — He who died for my sin. One makes atonement for my sin. I am covered by His blood. His blood cleanses me from all sin. His blood is the blood of Jesus Christ.
“The blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7b)
If I say I have no sin, I make Him out to be a liar, and His word is not in me.
If I say I have no sin, I have sinned.
He who knew no sin “became” sin on my behalf. He became “as” sin. He became the “sin offering”. He was, and is, the spotless “lamb of God” in whom there is no sin.
“Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29b)
This lamb is my Savior, Jesus Christ!
This lamb could be your Savior, too, if you would but receive Him!
“To them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12b)
Believe — and you will receive the gift of eternal life. This gift is given to ALL who call upon His name.
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Acts 2:21b)
