The Great Exchange
The Bible tells us that “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). Jesus came to solve both problems – sin and death! Sin was paid for at the cross on that dark Friday afternoon. Death was conquered at the empty tomb early on Sunday morning. The point of the gospel is to have the payment of the cross applied to your sin as you genuinely repent of your sin and wholeheartedly place your trust in Jesus Christ as the complete solution to the debt your sins have racked up against a holy God.
Don’t fall to history’s most frequent religious error, thinking that being good, sincere, or better than the next guy will somehow be a sin-cancelling credit. We need to see our lives, including whatever perceived credits we might think we have, exchanged completely for the life, death and resurrection of Christ. Be sure your hope is in him and not yourself. Turn from sin and trust him today.
