because he will save his people from their sins."
Jesus first had to become the sins of the people before he could save them (us) from those sins (2 Cor. 5:21; 1 John 4:10).
His own people rejected him before his forgiveness could be received.
Jesus' gift of salvation was incredibly costly to him. It is a reminder
of two great truths: God loves us incredibly and salvation is a precious
gift. In Jesus we know and experience both truths!
Almighty God and Savior, thank you for bearing the cost of
my sin in Jesus. Thank you precious Lord for taking on human flesh and
bearing it's difficulties and facing rejection so I could be saved. My
salvation makes all other names pale in comparison to Jesus,
in whom I offer all thanks and praise. Amen.
