Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 6:6-7 which say, “Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”
So in this verse a seraph (or an angel) took a burning coal and touched it to Isaiah’s mouth, why? Because (like all humans) Isaiah had sin, and He thought (because the Bible says so) that He would die if He had sin and He saw the Lord, but the burning coal atoned for His sin, but for us instead of a burning coal (which in this case is a picture of how Jesus atoned for us) we have Jesus, because on the cross He atoned for our sins, thank you so much Jesus.
So Jesus atoned for our sins, He took away our guilt at the cross, and He took it on Him, even though He was (and is) perfect, He died for us, so we don’t have to be guilty for our sins if we have Jesus as our saviour, but that doesn’t mean that we can go on sinning because Jesus forgave all of our sins, ”
Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
So because we are dead to our sins we shouldn’t sin anymore, thank you Jesus.
Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins?
