The Reason for Christ’s Death

Isaiah 53:10,

…the Lord makes his life an offering for sin…

God is holy. And God is just.  That is the necessity of His nature. But His heart desires to forgive. So Jesus was sent to stand in our place, to face our punishment.

For our sin we were condemned to eternal separation from God and all things good. God did not send Christ forever into hell but He placed on Christ a punishment that was equivalent to that.

What better testimony can we bear to the love and faithfulness of God than the testimony of a substitution eminently satisfactory for all who believe in Christ?
