Freedom from Sin through God’s Gift of Salvation
We are justified.
To justify means to “declare the rightness of something,” not symbolically or potentially, but actually—just as if it never happened. God says, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more” (Hebrews 10: 17).
We receive redemption.
This word carries the idea of delivering something, especially by means of paying a price. The term was commonly used when paying a ransom to free a prisoner from his captors, or paying a price to free a slave from his master. God did far more than that when He offered His Son in our place, to take the wrath we should have taken, that we deserved.
We are saved through Christ’s propitiation.
The word propitiation signifies appeasement or satisfaction. God is satisfied with what Jesus did at Calvary. The righteous requirements of the law were met.
May the moral mirror of God’s law cause you to see yourself for who you really are, and to see Jesus for all He really is. Then, you will understand the significance of what He has done for you.
