HOW SALVATION WAS PROVIDED
By John Baker
Scripture Reading: Romans 3:23-26
The following facts of sin point to the need for salvation:
Scope - Universal Ecclesiastes 7:20, Romans 3:9-23, Romans 5:12 Character - Does not meet God's standard I John 5:17, I John 3:4, Jeremiah 17=9, Isaiah 53:6, Ephesians 2:2-3, James 4:17, Romans 14:23.
Consequences - Death Genesis 2:16-17, Ezekiel 18:4, James 1:15, Romans 5:12, Romans 6:23
We have a righteous, just, and holy God who cannot tolerate sin. He loves the sinner, but He cannot forget sin. He must judge sin. God in His infinite wisdom and grace provided the way that He could be just and justifier. Romans 3:23-26 explains this action by God. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ .Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time His righteousness: that He might be just, and justifier of him which believeth in Jesus."
God provided a way that sin would be judged and His righteousness maintained and also show mercy and love to the sinner and forgive his sin. Of course this entailed God sending His only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to die for our sins= see II Corinthians 5:21.
