Jesus Christ came as a ransom for all

1 Timothy 2:5-6

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.

There is only one God - He is the Lord God Most high, the creator of the universe and sustainer of all things. Due to sin, humans need a mediator between us and God, and this is Christ Jesus. Furthermore, thinking about Christmas, the event that occurred some 2018 years ago is an unrepeatable event, in which, God carrying out His eternal plan, sent His son to become a human, in the form of a baby, born to a virgin called Mary. This mystery is more profound in that any other concerning God - in that God took on the form of a human.

This verse also tells us that Jesus Christ ransomed himself for our sin. God cannot forgive sin and turn a blind eye to the fact it ever occurred - but rather He must blot it out with blood (the wages of sin is death). That is, sin must be paid for - the debt is death and Jesus Christ died as a ransom for our sin, so to those that believer in the Lord Jesus Christ will suffer the wrath of God.

Do you believe in Jesus Christ?
