(Tune: “‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus”)

God is holy, just, and righteous

When He saves us by His love;

He is so based on the merits

Of Christ’s righteousness and blood.

Christ our Savior, Christ our Savior;

Look to Him and Him alone;

In His merits we find favor;

He our Lord is on the throne.

Christ has set us free from bondage;

We the debt no longer owe;

He has paid the fullest ransom,

Now the law must let us go.

Free in Jesus, free in Jesus;

Free to serve Him graciously;

He has bought our full salvation

Pardon, peace, and liberty.

Is Christ the Propitiation for Your Sins?

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. I John 4:10

‘Propitiation’ refers to the satisfaction rendered unto God the Father whereby the just wrath of God due to the guilt of sin is removed, God’s just wrath against sin being appeased. Thereby, reconciliation is made between a holy God and ungodly sinners. And this propitiation was made by Christ as the sin-bearing sacrifice – as He, God the Son incarnate (God, manifested in the flesh) paid the sin debt due unto God Himself by His sacrificial death on Calvary’s cross.

To the contrary, many in our day insist that God the Son was sent by God the Father to be a mere ‘means’ to an end, not actually be the end-all finisher of an accomplishment whereby sins are forgiven. Rather, this ‘christ’ is applauded for merely having made salvation possible. And so the heresy is propagated that there remains something for you the sinner to do in order to be saved and have your sins forgiven. This relegates the death of Christ on the cross to a position of subordination and inferiority to that which is presumed to make the real difference in their salvation – their decision, their acceptance of Christ, their act of faith, something they do (or imagine they are enabled to do) whereby they presume to be able to appropriate for themselves that which their “christ” made possible.

But do not be fooled! To any who imagine that Christ’s death failed to provide the full and complete satisfaction to God’s justice whereby those sinners for whom He died are fully reconciled unto God and on that basis alone, then know this: That would mean your ‘christ’ is not the Christ of this Bible because whatever you call it, if what Christ did failed to fully satisfy all that is required for the salvation of a sinner, then that ‘christ’ is not the propitiation for any sinner’s sins. Instead, that would be akin to looking to your own sinful self for your own propitiation, daring to place a work of your own hand in rivalry with the justice-satisfying, propitiatory work of the Lord of Glory. God forbid!

The Apostle John wrote to his fellow believers that God “…sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” Can you truthfully say that? Is Christ the propitiation for your sins?

--- Randy Wages


If we have been taught by the Holy Spirit concerning our sinfulness and the inability of the unregenerate man to perform a spiritual act, then we will realize the necessity of God’s irresistible, invincible call of grace. "Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: Thou hast the dew of Thy youth" (Psalm 110:3). The Lord Himself must overcome the natural rebellion of the sinner, quicken him by His almighty power and effectually draw the object of mercy to the Lord Jesus Christ, the only Savior of sinners. Unless God exerts this fetching grace, no sinner will ever come to a saving knowledge of Christ. Mr. Spurgeon’s comments on this subject are quite good. "Man by nature is as a wild horse dashing to the precipice. If he be restrained in his course and turned away from danger, it is because he has a mighty Rider, and One that knows how to pull the bit and guide him as He pleases. And though he kick and lunge and long to turn away, his Rider can pull him up on his very haunches, turn him around, and make him go as He wills. In this matter it is true that all the bringing of the gospel to the soul of man is of God." Thank the Lord, He has conquered our hearts, broken our spirits and brought us to the end of ourselves. He has granted us true repentance from idolatry and dead works, and led us with merciful kindness to trust the Lord Jesus Christ, relying upon His blood and righteousness, and seeking acceptance before a holy God only in this glorious Mediator.

--- Pastor Jim Byrd


Have you ever stopped to think about this, the people on earth who have appeared the most zealous for God did not know Him and died in their sins. The apostle Paul used his own kinsmen after the flesh as an example of this sobering fact: “Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.” (Romans 10:1-3) We should remember this as we consider our religious family members, coworkers and friends around us who know nothing about and reject what they do know of the “gospel wherein the righteousness of God is revealed..” (Rom. 1:16,17) But most of all, we should remember it when considering ourselves!
