Week 23: Why was it necessary for Christ, the Redeemer, to die?

Why was it necessary for Christ, the Redeemer, to die?

Colossians 1:21-22
Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation.

Answer
Christ died willingly in our place to deliver us from the power and penalty of sin and bring us back to God

Prayer
Lord, knowing your Father's will, you came into the world to save us. You are the one who saves! You, our Redeemer, died in our place to save us. Father, forgive us our sins for the sake of your Son. Let your Spirit watch over us, and let your love always rule in our hearts. We ask this through your Son, in whom you are always well pleased. Amen.
