This Week’s Memory Verse:
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10 KJV
God’s Love is what great love is. His love for us is so great that He sent His Son to die for for the sins of mankind in order that mankind might be able to be reconciled to Him and have a close, personal relationship as they once had in the Garden of Eden.
(And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2 KJV)
Propitiation means: atonement, appeasement, reconciliation, conciliation, payment, recompense, remedy, remission, retribution, etc. etc.–which means Christ’s death was the payment for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for sins of the whole world.
Those who choose to believe this and accept Christ as their Savior are cleansed and forgiven for their sins because of Christ’s propitiation, those who do not, who reject Christ as the atonement, will die in their sins–there is no other way that mankind can be set free from sin, otherwise if there was, why would God have sent His only Son to suffer and die for sin?
It is a choice we all have to make, and those of us who have chosen to believe and receive are most blessed to have that close personal relationship with God the Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and the Holy Spirit who resides within us. Amen!!??
