We all feel the brokenness of the world and our lives which results from sin. We try to solve this problem ourselves through religious effort, humanitarian efforts, scientific advancement, and chasing the “good life”. The Bible tell us that these efforts ultimately won’t work. But God has provided salvation for us in his Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus’ incarnation and life show that he is the only one who is able to save. His death on the cross fully achieves salvation for us, paying for all of our sin so that we are justified before God. His resurrection gives us new life which is no longer defined by the sin of Adam, rather it is defined by the righteousness of Christ. And to top it off he brings us into the family of God, adopting us into the everlasting love of the Father.
