The scripture teaches us in Matthew 1:21 that “he (Jesus) will save his people from their sins”. This was the prophecy spoken to Joseph by an angel, telling him that this baby that Mary was having would bring salvation to mankind.
Sin is what separates mankind from God, and Jesus became the mediator between us, paying the price for our sins by dying on a cross. He didn’t come to earth to be a cute baby in a manger and later become a celebrity at Christmastime. He came to save us from sin by being that sacrifice for our sins.
You may ask, “Why do I need to be saved or delivered from sin?” We find the answer in Romans 3:23 where we are told that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” which simply means we are all guilty of sin and in need of a savior.
You may ask, “Why do I need to be concerned about being delivered from sin?, I will just go on living my life without forgiveness offered by Jesus.” Romans 6:23 gives us that answer by saying that “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
So if we don’t let Jesus take care of the sin problem, then first, we will die in our sins, which means eternal separation from God or hell. Secondly, we will miss out on eternal life, which means eternity with God in this wonderful place called heaven.
Your sin problem can be fixed, and the same Jesus that came to earth over 2,000 years ago is the same Jesus that can save and deliver you. His power is so strong it can deliver from the most severe bondage. Salvation is just a prayer away.
