Isaiah 53:3-7; 1 John 1:29
How does God show His love and concern for the sinner as well as satisfy His righteous requirement for justice on sin? The answer is in our text in Ephesians 1:7: “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.” God showed His love and concern for sinners by giving His only Son to die on the cross for our sins. True “forgiveness of sins” is found only in the blood of Jesus. God satisfied His righteous requirement for judgement on sin through Jesus’ voluntary paying the penalty of sin and serving the sentence of death.
