1 John 2:2 and he is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
When he served as a sacrifice for our sins, he solved the sin problem for good — not only ours, but the whole world’
Jesus is the way our sins are taken away. And he is the way all people can have their sins taken away too.
When man fell, God’s intention and plan for man was shattered because sin came in. man could no longer be what God created him to be. So God had to sketch out another plan to redeem man and get man back into plan so that man can exercise his dominion again.
Dear, do you want to know the plan? Well, I will tell you. Jesus was the plan. He had to give up Jesus who was His only begotten son to get back His family.
God was in need of friends, He was in need of family, but a price needed to be paid for this to be possible; because the supposed family had been lost because of sin. The plan was to get a family, the plan was to give up his son as the price to get back his people.
Beloved, can I tell you the good news, when God was making those plans, he had you in mind. It was even because of you he was more willing to give up his only begotten son as the price for your redemption even though it was very costly. This is indeed a proof that God loves and cherish you so much, (John 3:16 “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life).
When he planned to redeem man, you were part of the plan, for He came to earth for you and redeemed you too. When He planned for a family, he had you in mind and he is still waiting for all his people to come back to him. He paid a costly price for this, he went this far because he was in need of a family.
It is either you are part of God’s family or part of the devil’s family. The devil truly never had man as part of his family, he won man when man sinned and became separated from God.
Now God has paid the price and he need back his family, He does not want you to end up in hell with the devil. The price God paid was for all men including you. ALL you need to do is to accept Jesus into your life. Believe in your heart and confess the Lordship of Jesus upon your life.
