But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”Galatians 3:13
Jesus is our rescuer. He became the curse meant for us. The penalty for sins is death as it says in Romans 6:23: “the wages of sin is death.” We deserved that death. We deserved the curse. Jesus took it instead. He hung on the cross for us.
The catch is that we have to realize and understand our need for a rescuer. We have to admit that there is a problem first. We must acknowledge our need for him. Then he will rescue us. Someone who is drowning automatically knows they’re drowning. They do not have to think about it. If someone throws them a life preserver or tries to save them, they will go for it because they know their situation. What about you? What about those you know? Take some time to pray and ask God to help those around you realize their need for a Savior.
A Prayer to Remember
You are the only one who can rescue us from our sins. You are the Savior. Help me share that good news with the world. Amen.
