DEVOTION: “He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.” – 1 John 2:2
So. This verse, almost as amazing as yesterday’s verse. This one is all about remembrance. About why we take communion. His sacrifice for you and me.
Jesus. The sacrifice for our sins. The reason we have freedom. Hope. Mercy. Grace.
The reason we have a chance.
And….the mind blowing thing is that this sacrifice was not only for you and me. It was for our neighbors. Our friends. People we come in contact with at the coffee shop. People we’ll never meet on the other side of the world.
There is no class, race or status that is exempt from this sacrifice. It’s for all of us.
Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
