THE MEANS OF SALVATION
Scripture Reading: II Corinthians 5:21
The fact of sin and its consequences and what God has done about it in sending His Son to die for us, will do little good, until we appropriate it as our own. We must believe the gospel. We must come to that place where we ask "Why did Christ die?" We have seen that "the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23a), "the soul that sinneth, it shall die" (Ezekiel 18:4b), and "sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death" (James 1:15). Why did Christ die? He was no sinner. He was "as of a lamb without blemish and without spot" (I Peter 1:19). He "was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin" (Hebrews 4:15). He "did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth" (I Peter 2:22). Why did Christ die? That was our death, He died. "For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him" (II Corinthians 5:21).
We can believe that Christ died for sin, but until we make it personal, we have not really seen Christ as our Saviour. Oh what joy and relief it brings when 1 see that Christ died in my place for my sin and that 1 can be saved by trusting in Him.
Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul
