There is one God,
and one mediator between God and mankind,
the man Christ Jesus;
Who gave himself a ransom for all,
1 Timothy 2:5-6 HSV
Christ Jesus is the Mediator between God in heaven and mankind. Christ gave His own life as a ransom for all. Jesus gave His own blood to purchase all who would believe in Him.
“Christus Sollus” Latin for “Christ Alone”.
Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world!
His death was an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Jesus is the Lamb of God who came to take away the sin of the world.
Saint Paul wrote; “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV
In the Jewish Bible we read a prophecy about the Messiah;
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
Isaiah 53:5-6 NKJV
Christ alone was without sin. The perfect Lamb of God sacrificed His life for sinful men and women. The just died for the unjust. The only One who alone was all together righteous died for all of the unrighteous.
Thanks be to God for His amazing grace and the gift of eternal salvation!
It’s good to give thanks to God for giving His beloved Son Jesus so that all who believe in Him may have eternal life.
