Today is Wednesday, October 18, 2017. Hi, my name is Adam Burton, and you are listening to the daily devo. A short devotional designed to help you apply God’s Word to your life. The content comes from the Gospel Project.
Take a few moments and read: Matthew 27:15-51.
This week’s essential doctrine is Christ as Substitute.
At the heart of the atonement is Jesus Christ substituting Himself for sinners as He died on the cross. This truth is seen against the backdrop of the Old Testament sacrificial system, which provided a picture of humanity’s need for sin to be covered and guilt to be removed by an innocent sacrifice. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with humankind, yet without sin. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross, He made provision for the redemption of humanity from sin.
