What is a Christian? - Amnesty is Granted

 

Amnesty is Granted

When people repent they're granted an amnesty by God. They are not punished for their acts of rebellion as they ought to be. Indeed, they are treated as if they never were rebels. We don't deserve this treatment and it could never have been ours except for the death of Jesus Christ on our behalf. When Jesus died he took the punishment which mankind deserves because of their sin. (1 Peter 3:18) He was punished for sinful people so they could be set free from the punishment which they deserve. This is the measure of the love of Jesus Christ for us. He loved us and gave His life for us. (1 John 4:10)

"He said to them, 'Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.' "

Mark 16:15
