How could he destroy death and pay the debt of all humanity while remaining God? For He, God who is eternal, was incapable of achieving death and if possible, it would linger unknown to the very people He loved so much to die for. The solution to this divine dilemma was found in the Second Person of the Trinity, Jesus Christ. He, the Word, was “the most qualified of the three persons of the Trinity to bring about the ren... ... middle of paper ... ...esult of Christ’s Paschal Mystery. God heard our cry for help and answered our prayers through the incarnation of Jesus in which He became man in order to save us.
It is based completely and only upon Jesus' sacrifice on the cross ("and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to moral rightness; for by His wounds you were healed.") and is received by faith alone ("For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast."). No works are necessary at all to get Justification. Otherwise, it is not a gift ("For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is everlasting life in Christ Jesus our Lord."). Therefore, we are justified by faith ("Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.").
He had so much love for human kind that he came to earth to die for the sins of the people, so that their souls would be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. The Bible testifies that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who taught memorable life lessons and performed astonishing miracles during his ministry. Isaiah
We are all truly blessed to have a God that would rather save us than destroy us, a God that would give His life for us. Some of this is hard to understand. People will lose faith and believe all this to be false, but what is faith if there is no question. Our questioning is what led to Jesus coming in the first place, and when He destroyed death, He proved Himself to us all.
Although, God had more than one solution to the problem of sin by humanity. “Simply in order that through this gift of Godlikeness in themselves they may be able to perceive the Image Absolute,... ... middle of paper ... ...believe it is the most important that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to succeed in bringing salvation to humanity. This could be the most important because without Jesus dying on the cross for us, there would not have been a sacrifice great enough to overcome the corruption that was taking over humans (Athanasius 8). Secondly, by God coming in a human form, we were shown an example of how we are supposed to live our lives being Holy and showing respect for one another as God shows respect for us. This human form was necessary to take because it was the easiest way for us to comprehend and recognize that Christ is Lord (Pohle February Twenty Fourth).
(Luke 6:27-28) For despite our unworthiness, God loved us and made the greatest sacrifice to prove it. God's Love for Mankind "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) God loves us so intensely that He purposed His Son to be unmercifully tortured, beaten, scorned, scrutinized and murdered ... all in the name of Love. He has bestowed His perfect love upon us, seeking those who are deemed the most wretched and alienated from Him that they may be saved. His is a redeeming love manifested in mercy and grace, for He cares for and help us when we are in need, and He accepts us and loves us even though we don't deserve it.
St. Prosper of Aquitaine says only the elect or saved because God willed them to be saved, God had no respect of person. God gratu... ... middle of paper ... ...d “Do not think that I came to abolish but to fulfill (Matthew 5:17 NIV). Jesus came to make the law better for us. Let us therefore come body to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16 KJV). God takes no pleasure in the death of sinners he wants them to turn.
The reason is because God loved us so much that he did that for us so that is the least that we could do. In Genesis 3:15 it says that we will be punished for our sins. Yes, that is true, but God will forgive and forget them if we repent. You see this is not possible without Jesus dying for our sins. In Romans 5:6-8 it says that Christ died for all of us.
In the same way Jesus was a sacrifice, only his death did not just take away the sins of a few people but the sins of the whole world. This means that Jesus was punished for all the things that people have done wrong so that they could receive forgiveness from God, we must all be eternally grateful for this. We are now put right with God by the sacrificial death of his son and we are now saved from God's anger!! We must also remember that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son and we must again be eternally grateful! Jesus died: 1.To save humans from the consequences of sin.
