Title: The Remedy for Sin
Is there a remedy for the sin-sick soul of all men? The good news is that there is a remedy; there is a way by which the soul can be healed. In fact, from the days of Adam God had provided this remedy .
As we trace the rebellion and idolatry of mankind in the Scriptures, we can also trace God's divine redemptive purposes being worked out and fulfilled in the provision of a Redeemer.
When sin came into the world God also instituted a means by which we could see the horribleness of sin, the cost of rescue from it, and the only means of that rescue. Down through the centuries the blood of a lamb made atonement for the one who offered it, if that person truly repented and believed in its sure efficacy by the word of God.
In the fulness of time God sent His Son - the Lamb of God - to take away the sin of the WORLD. Christ shed His blood for the remission of sin once and for all, and all who would repent and believe in Him would be saved. It is the final and only escape from the wages of sin - death.
Now is the day of salvation. Call upon Him while He is near, for the Lord is rich in mercy and grace on all who will call upon Him. For "whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Rom.10:12-13).
