“And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”
1 Corinthians 6:11
“We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
Isaiah 53:6

There is one thing all of us who belong to the human race have in common. Each of us has a natural propensity to go our way instead of God’s way. The Bible calls this sin and there is only one solution to the complexity of our rebellion. The good news is that God had that problem solved before He created anything. He knew the risk He was taking when He created human beings with a volition that gave them the freedom to reject Him and His ways. It was in God’s plan to bring redemption to the world by offering His Son as a sacrificial Lamb. (See Revelation 13:8) There are many voices on the earth today who say there is a multitude of ways to God, but that is simply not true. Justification from sin that gives us peace with God comes only through faith in the resurrected Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ.
