For what purpose did Christ come into the world?
“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” 1 Timothy 1:15
Why was He to be named “Jesus“?
“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. ” Matthew 1:21
Answer: He was to save us “from” our sins. Notice the word “from” implying that he intends to call us out of our sinful life into one free from sin.
Is there salvation in any other?
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. ” Acts 4:12
Through whom only may we come to God?
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” 1 Timothy 2:5-6
Answer: There is only ONE mediator which is Christ Jesus. Not a priest, a patriarch, a dead person, a god but only through Christ!
What has Christ been made for us?
“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin…” 2 Corinthians 5:21
“… that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21
How dependent are we upon Christ for salvation?
” I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. ” John 15:5
We can see in the cross of Calvary what it has cost the Son of God to bring salvation to a fallen race. As the sacrifice in behalf of man was complete, so the restoration of man from the defilement of sin must be thorough and complete.
