“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21
Sin is our deadliest foe.
It cast our first parents out of paradise.
It defaced God’s image in man.
It brought pain, sickness, and death into the world, and a spiritual death into the soul.
It causes a distance from God and a dislike to His holy ways.
It gave Satan power over mankind.
It once drowned the world and will at length consume it.
It exposes body and soul to the just judgment of a holy God and will sink every unpardoned offender into everlasting destruction.
How is this deadly foe to be conquered? How is this fretting leprosy of the soul to be cleansed?
Reader, be careful in this matter and seek a remedy that will be efficacious. Duties, prayers, tears, sacrifices, morality, and partial reformations avail nothing in this case. Anything other than Christ Jesus will prove to be “physicians” of no value.
Jesus is the only Savior.
God the Father sent Him into the world to save sinners.
His name declares the same — he is called “JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”
His blood is the only atonement for sin.
His blood removes the guilt and curse of sin and speaks pardon and peace.
His grace breaks the power of sin and turns our former love to it into utter hatred.
Thus is holiness secured in the heart and life, as well as peace in the conscience. He will save from the very being of sin all that place their trust in Him.
O Jesus, save me and give the evidence of salvation in my heart!
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)
