Forgiveness of our sin

Colossians 1 says

21 Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of[g] your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death 

Jesus died for our sin and purchased righteousness for us. Just as how we are not responsible for what Adam did but because of his sin the whole of mankind was made sin; by the death of Jesus the whole of mankind has been made righteous. 

Are you able to believe it. We are taught from childhood John 3:16 which says Christ died for the whole world. Are you able to comprehend it. He died for the whole world which included you. He died for you even before you were born. Even before you were born your sins were forgiven. 

Meditate on these words. These words are revolutionary thoughts to people following the Christian faith. This is the gospel to the lost. You were not saved because you deserve it, did something note worthy or because you said the sinners prayer. You were save because he died when you were alienated from God. 

This is the grace of God. Think about it. Meditate about it. Pray and ask God to reveal his love that was revealed to us in the cross.
