Christ is the Remedy for Sin

Here are some encouragements for the saints. Be encouraged in your walk with Jesus today. If you are a preacher, you may find a spot for this somewhere in a sermon. Feel free.

Christ is God's gracious and true remedy for sin. He is full of grace and truth. He saves sinners completely.

Hebrews 7:25 ... He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.

Christ is an undeserved remedy for sin

We do not deserve such a Savior. We do not deserve to be saved. We deserve to be condemned and separated from His presence.

Christ is an unmerited remedy for sin
We cannot earn His favor through our efforts or make ourselves worthy of Him.

Christ is the exclusive remedy for sin
There is no other way to be saved from sin.

Christ is the powerful and effective remedy for sin
He justifies us from its punishment. He sanctifies us from its effects. He will free us from it completely.

Christ is the enduring remedy for sin
He will not be replaced with another. He is all in all, eternally.

Christ is the ideal remedy for sin
He perfectly fills all of our need.

Christ is the available remedy for sin
He stands ready to receive all who come to Him by faith.
