Amazing Love

“...that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest before God to expiate the sins of the people.” Hebrews 2:17

“To expiate for our sins” means to atone, make up for, or pay for. A non-Christian asked a Christian how can an ordinary man pay for all the sins of all the people in the world, past and present? “It’s like me paying for our billion dollar national debt with my meager bank account!” The Christian answered that it was no problem for Jesus. He is God with an infinite bank account. 

A judge presiding in court had to deal with his daughter’s traffic infraction. She was facing him in front of the judge’ bench. After meting out her punishment, he left his chair, went down the elevated platform, and paid the penalty for his daughter. We too are like that erring daughter. Our Father loves us and He paid the price for our sin, so we can join Him in heaven. 

Thank You for Your amazing love, Father!
