Day 24

Updated: Jul 27

Now that we’ve looked at two aspects of our loving relationship with God and some of the nature of His love, let’s look at two parts of what His love accomplished for us on the cross: forgiving the debt of your sin and carrying your pain.


On the cross, Jesus paid the debt of all your sin. Colossians 2:13-14 lays out this reality. Our sins are forgiven us and the debt that we owed God and others has been paid for. Why is this important? First it is important because we can be reconciled back to God, meaning that we have a right relationship and total union with God. Second, we do not legally owe Him anything, meaning that you do not have to try to do a bunch of good works or deeds to pay Him back. It was a free gift. Finally, because Jesus paid for every sin you can be free from the chains, bondage, and condemnation that comes sin and live free and with a clean conscience. (John 8:31-36 and Hebrews 9:13-14)


Not only did Jesus pay your debt before the Father on the cross, but He also paid for and bore the pain of the sin done to you. Isaiah 53 is a beautiful chapter that describes what Jesus accomplished for us in His body. Isaiah 53:4-5 states that He carried our sorrows, pains, and griefs and by His stripes we are healed. This is extremely important for us to understand because it is saying that He knows every painful moment in our life and took on the fullness of that pain in His body at the cross and paid for our healing. This means you no longer have to carry and hold to the pain of the things that have been said and done to you, Jesus took it. Jesus saw and knows the pain that you went through and you can look to His scars as the proof. In addition, it means that you can forgive whoever said and did those things to you because Jesus fully paid for their sin too.


These realities are extremely important for us to grasp. We have to realize that Jesus paid for our sin and learn how to give our sin to Him and see it on the cross so that we no longer carry the shame and condemnation of it. In addition, we have to realize He took all of our pain and learn how to give our pain to Him and cast it on Him so that we are no longer weighed down by it and so we can forgive those that have wronged us.
