A Post on the death of Jesus Christ doesn’t apply only on Good Friday. Every day is a great day to reflect on Jesus’ obedience to His Father’s will, whereby Jesus Christ is the substitute for the sin of the world.
The payment required for sin is death (Gen 2:17, Rom 5:12, Rom 6:23) and when Christ said TETELESTAI (John 19:30), He was saying that the sin debt was “PAID IN FULL!”
We owed a debt we could never pay. Jesus paid a debt He did not owe!
If you believe that, His righteousness has been credited to your account (Rom 4:3, Rom 4:24, Gal 3:6-7). Our approach to God is due entirely to the substitutionary identification of our Lord with sin. We have “boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus.” (Heb. 10:19)
