The Sacrifice of Jesus
He made us to glorify and worship Him, but we chose to pursue our own wants and desires rather than God's (Romans 1:21). This is called sin. Because of selfishness and rebellion, we separated ourselves from God, so He graciously sent Jesus, his one and only son, to earth (John 3:16). Born of a virgin (Luke 1:31-35), Jesus was 100% man and 100% God (Philippians 2:6-7). Though tempted to do evil just as we are, Jesus never sinned (Hebrews 4:15). His obedience was astounding, even to death on a cross (Philippians 2:8). It was this death that was the ultimate sacrifice for every single sin that we have and will ever commit. It is the blood of Jesus that justifies and saves us from the wrath of God (Romans 5:8-9).
