WORD FOR TODAY. CJM
WORD FOR TODAY. CJM My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” 1 John 2:1-6
The word propitiation is used in the Bible in connection with Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for our sins. The Bible states clearly that the penalty of sin is death (Romans 6:23). Jesus Christ, the Son of God, lived a sinless life; and by His death He paid the penalty for our sins so we might receive the gift of eternal life (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:1-5).
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!
