Paid in Full!
I remember the excitement years ago when I first learned that I can become like Jesus! It still is an amazing truth that wakes me with hope for the day. But I must celebrate even more that Jesus is not and has never been like me! Jesus suffered for the sins of mankind, but Jesus never knew sin, regret and repentance. Jesus does not know what it feels like to be unfaithful to God.
Jesus does not show us what it is like for a sinner to repent, but He shows us what it is like for a Savior to pay for the sins that I have committed. Jesus didn't come just to reveal to us why we are going to Hell. He came to show us how to avoid that horrible fate.
Jesus can relate to my temptation. He does understand suffering and pain. He knows sorrow and grief, but sin is another matter. Jesus came to take me away from sin and to take the consequences of sin away from me! His one sacrifice on the Cross paid the price for every sin that has ever or will ever be committed. The Good News of Jesus is that He is giving you the choice of accepting or rejecting that payment.
If you believe in Jesus, accept Him as your Lord and Savior, are united with Him and walk in His ways you will be changed into His likeness and live with Jesus forever, and the price He paid on the Cross will be credited to your account! Your sin account will be marked PAID IN FULL!
