And to give his life a ransom for many.”

“Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”

Matthew 20:28 KJV

Jesus cake to give His life as a ransom. There was a sin debt that had to be paid and it was only the precious blood of Jesus that could atone for the sin that bound us.

All of us are born into sin and the only way that sin can be washed away is through the shed blood of Jesus. That means all of our sins are forgiven. Our right standing with God is not based on performance or behavior. It is based only on the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

Through Christ we are free. Let us fix our eyes upon Jesus and not on ourselves. Often the enemy will try to remind us of the past or short comings. But our eyes should always be fixed upon Jesus. In Him and His sacrifice we can rest because our debt has been paid.
