He Paid It All by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

The next day John seeth Jesus coming
unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of
God, which taketh away the sin of the
world (John 1:29).

Perhaps you’re familiar with this beautiful song
that encapsulates the vicarious sacrifice of
Jesus Christ in our behalf: “He paid a debt He
did not owe, I owed a debt I could not pay, I needed
someone to wash my sins away. And now I sing a brand
new song, amazing grace; Christ Jesus paid the debt
that I could never pay….” Yes, indeed, He paid the full
penalty for our sins!

When Adam disobeyed God, the inevitable
consequence was spiritual death (Genesis 2:17), which
is total severance or separation from God. The Bible
says, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the
world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all
men, for that all have sinned” (Romans 5:12). However,
God immediately introduced the sacrifice of bulls and
goats as atonement for sin. This was the order with the
children of Israel in the Old Testament, for without the
shedding of blood, there couldn’t be remission for sin
(Hebrews 9:22).

Nevertheless, the Bible lets us know that the
sacrifice of bulls and goats couldn’t take away sin: “For
it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats
should take away sins” (Hebrews 10:4). God then
activated a grand plan for man’s total salvation by
sending Jesus Christ. Man’s salvation was
consummated when Jesus Christ—the Lamb of
God—was offered to take away the sins of the world
(John 1:29). The Bible calls Him “the Lamb slain from
the foundation of the world.”

By His death on the Cross, Jesus bore our sins
and washed them away with His blood, once and for all
time! He paid the ultimate price for sin, which man had
incurred without a means of settlement. Hebrews 9:12
says, “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by
his own blood he entered in once into the holy place,
having obtained eternal redemption for us.”

Christ has paid for the remission of your sins.
Now, you’re washed, sanctified, and justified; free from
sin, death, and destruction. Glory to God!

CONFESSION
Blessed be God! I’m washed, sanctified, glorified,
and justified; I’m the righteousness of God in Christ
Jesus, because Jesus bore my sins and gave me His
righteousness. Now, I’m an associate of the
God-kind; a participator in the divine experience,
walking in newness of life, and in the light of my
righteousness in Christ. Hallelujah!
