Jesus Covered Us

Hello everyone! I was reading my ‘Bitsized Theology’ book this week and I found this really amazing and interesting and wanted to share it with y’all, (especially since it kind of applies to Easter, and what Jesus did on the cross).

“Our sins are not overlooked. They are dealt with exactly as God had always said they should be dealt with. They are punished, but because they had been laid on Jesus and He has taken responsibility for them, he takes our punishment instead of us.”

1 Peter 2:24 says, “‘He himself bore our sins’ in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; ‘by his wounds you have been healed.'”

I hope that encourages you as it does me. God is so good. It is amazing to think that Jesus willingly took our sins on Himself so that we could live in eternity with Him. Thank you Lord!!!
