Daily Radio: Debt Paid posted by John Sorensen on Jun 11, 2015
Nearly everyone who knows of Jesus knows that Jesus died on the cross of Calvary. But few are aware of the significant role that death played according to scripture.
I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. The death of Jesus Christ has no meaning for anyone until they realize that they are sinners and their sin separates them from an all Holy God. They must understand that their sins were laid upon Christ. That He assumed their guilt. Jesus’ “It is finished” on the cross in the original Greek means the debt for our sin has been paid. As Paul put it, God made Christ to be sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
When people understand that their sins were laid upon Christ on the cross, then the cross has special meaning for them. I hope this helps you as you share life with your friends today. Visit ShareLife.today for great tools and help in sharing this story with your friend.
