ATONEMENT BY CHRIST ALONE


 

The Bible tells us we are atoned by the the work and sacrifice of Christ on the CROSS AT CALVARY. Some folk try to find atonement by other means but we are told by God’s word that it is through Christ alone. Today I share the following verses with you telling us that truth.

John 1:29

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

29 The next day he *saw Jesus coming to him and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

36 and he looked at Jesus as He walked, and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!”

Acts 4:10-12

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that [a]by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—[b]by [c]this name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 [d]He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”

1 Thessalonians 1:10

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

10 and to wait for His Son from [a]heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath to come.

1 Timothy 2:5-6

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony [a]given at [b]the proper time.
