“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace…” (Ephesians 1:7)
Jesus took our place when he died on the cross, taking upon himself the punishment for all of our sins. Jesus died as a ransom so that we can be forgiven and reconciled to God.
“…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified [put in eternal right standing with God] freely by his grace [unmerited favor] through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement [as the one who would turn aside his wrath, taking away sin] through faith in his blood” (Romans 3:23-25).
