[Isaiah 1:18 KJV] Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
What a savior we have in Jesus! Though our sins stand out as deep red upon snow, He is faithful to make them white as snow! The payment? His blood for our blood. His wounds for our wrongdoing. His bruising for our immorality. His stripes for our healing. His death for our life!
[Isaiah 53:5 KJV] 5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Jesus paid the price in full with his suffering. Though he knew no sin, he was punished in our place to secure our great salvation. On the cross, he said “it is finished.” And, indeed it is. All we have to do is receive this great salvation and the giver of it, by believing that
- Jesus came and lived as a man, yet without sin
- He was tortured and crucified, unto death
- He was buried for three days and then raised back to life
- He now sits at the right hand of the Father in heaven interceding for us
To turn away from our sin and recieve this great salvation is simple
[Romans 10:9-10 NKJV] 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Now turn away (repent) from your sinful lives and receive this good news – that is the gospel! Receive Jesus as your Lord and savior! Invite him into your heart to help you live the way he wants you to and dedicate your life to following him.
