For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Every person at some point in their lives has experienced pain as the result of a physical injury. And what do most people do when they’re in pain? They look for anything that will take the pain away.
Unfortunately, no treatment or miracle drug can take away the pain of our sin. And in this broken, sinful world, that pain leads to death—our eternal separation from God.
If you’re experiencing pain, here’s a reminder of some great news! We can find the ultimate relief from our pain in Jesus Christ. Click To Tweet
He gives us the strength we need to overcome many challenges we face in life (Philippians 4:13). And his death on the cross was an offering for our sin. It relieved us of our fair punishment of separation from God for eternity. When we place our faith in Jesus, we’re made right with God, no matter who we are (Romans 3:22).
We all sin and will continue to sin. And the consequences of these sins will lead to more pain. But God gives us the gift of salvation, not because of what we’ve done, but because of His endless mercy and grace. When we put our faith in Jesus and believe that he died on the cross for our sin and that God raised him from the grave, we will be saved and our pain will be relieved.
Are you in pain? Can you trust Jesus to take that pain away?
