And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. 1 John 3:5

Another reason Jesus came to earth, as crystallised in the passage above, is to take away our sins and make us pleasing and acceptable to God. As humans, we are fundamentally prone to sin in our thinking, action, speech, attitude and in other things we do. And there is no denying our sinful nature, as that will only amount to self-deception (1 John 1:8).

Even as sin does a lot of harm to us, principal among which is alienating us from God with all the implications of that, He nonetheless desires that we live and operate in our fullness so that we can enjoy fellowship with Him as He originally intended. That was why He sent His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to come and become the propitiation for our sins.

Jesus came to take away our sins – that which disqualifies us from enjoying the fullness of God. By taking our sin upon Himself, He became the bridge that closes the gulf between God and man, so that we can have access to God on one hand, and come into His presence without blemish on the other. He is indeed “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” [John 1:29]

You will succeed in Jesus Name!
