I’m posting today over at our church’s missions blog…
John 1:29 – “John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”
God’s wrath toward sinners is real. We know that to be true because of what John said about Jesus here. And, John didn’t just say it. He proclaimed it. Look! See! Behold! Jesus takes away sin. That’s what the heart of God’s compassion is about. “People are under God’s righteous wrath, so with a sense of urgency, we meet their spiritual and physical needs.” Because we believe that without Christ, sinners will meet a just punishment, we must go and make known the best of all news: Jesus takes away the sin of the world.
I hope your heart is refreshed in this amazing news today. Jesus takes away the sin of the world!
