Why we need Jesus
Dear friends, everyone sins, including the most self-righteous religionists and church-goers. Without Christ what becomes of our sins? They must be accounted for, and without Christ they are all accounted to you. The judgment has already been made against you, and your sentencing day will arrive when you die. We need the man Christ Jesus to atone for our sins (Romans 5:11), “And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation”. We need Jesus Christ the Son of God to mediate between God and us (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”. Through Christ’s blood, we have forgiveness. We need Jesus Christ as long as sin is still present, or else it would be unrighteous to forgive anyone for sins.
