Remedy for Sin

Remedy means to heal, cure for health and also for sin.  There is a remedy for sin and it is a wonderful remedy too.  Just like a remedy for incurable disease, we would rejoice if they had remedies for every disease, wouldn't we?  Well, the worst disease is the disease of the soul, our spiritual life and there is a remedy and a good reason for rejoicing which you will see and it will bless you immensely to apply it to your life.  Let's check it out.

Matthew 20:28  "Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

John 1:29  "The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, 'Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world."

John 10:11  "I am the Good Shepherd.  The Good Shepherd gives his life for the sheep."

Romans 5:6  "For when we were till without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly."

2 Corinthians 5:21  "For He made Him who know no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."

Galatians 2:20  "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who love me and gave Himself for me."

Ephesians 1:7  "In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace."

1 Peter 1:18,19  "Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from you aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot."

1 John 2:2  "And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the whole world."  Propitiation means forgiveness of sins or reconciling us to God.

1 John 4:10  "In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins."

Revelation 7:14  "And I said to him, 'Sir, you know,'  so he said to me 'These are the ones who came out of great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."

Do you see the remedy for sin in these verses?  Who did Christ die for?  For the ungodly and for the whole world.  For you and for me.  God sent His Son to take care of our sins on the cross, through much humiliation and suffering to make a way for us to escape from the damnation of the sins that we have committed or will commit.  That is the remedy, so how do we apply this remedy?  By surrendering our all to Him.  Everything in our life that needs a remedy, needs surrendered.  We can do that because He has promised that we, 'can do all things through Christ who strengthens us'.  So we come to Him in full surrender and confess our sins and give them to Him to cleanse us from them and then He can clothe us with His righteousness, which is the remedy.  This is not a one time thing, it is a daily, hourly, living for Him and a grateful heart and a heart full of love and happiness is the result of accepting this remedy.  I pray that you are ready for this.  Grandma Joan
