Message of the Day: Christ’s Death Broke the Power of Sin

“…who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24, NKJV)

Although dealing with the example set by Jesus Christ. Peter touches also also on the redemptive work of Christ, which has significance far beyond that of setting an example, Peter here points to the substitutionary character of the atonement. Christ, like the sacrificial lamb of the Old Testament, died for our sins, the innocent for the guilty. Peter also stresses the bearing of the cross on our sanctification. As a result of Christ’s death on the cross, believers are positionally dead to sin so that they may live new lives and present themselves to God as instruments of righteousness. Christ’s death brings healing of our bodies and soul, it brings salvation to those who trust him.

It was because of our sins that Christ died, and so we are now asked to suffer for his sake (2;18-23). It was our sins he bore on the cross. Through his death, sins power over us is broken. We are cleansed, given new life, and brought under his loving care.
