The Just for the unjust
“For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God.” First Peter 3:18a
Since he was just, since he was perfect, he only had to die once to bear the sins of the whole unjust world. And why did he do it? ‘so that He might bring us to God’. Being unjust separates us from God, but Jesus died for us so that he might bring us to God. What a wonderful thought, that in the company of Jesus we can have our sins washed away and have peace with God. Truly, there is no other way.
