Jesus Died to Save Us from the Sin We Make Light Of

Jesus Died to Save Us from the Sin We Make Light Of

Isaiah 53:5; Galatians 3:13; 1 Peter 2:22–24

When we look upon sin through Satan’s spectacles, and the cloud of our own passions and carnal affections, we make nothing of it; but in the agonies of Christ, and the sorrows and sufferings of his cross, we see the odiousness of it, that it may become more hateful to us. No less remedy would serve the turn than the agonies, bloodshed, and accursed death of the Son of God, to procure the pardon and destruction of sin. By this sin-offering and ransom for souls we may see what sin is.… We make light of sin, but Christ found it not so light a matter to expiate it.

Thomas Manton (1620 – 1677)
