The Cross Our Only Hope.
If Christ had not come there would be no forgiveness for sin or victory over sin. “WITHOUT SHEDDING OF BLOOD THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS” (Heb.9:22 NASB). The Bible says that He came to seek and save the lost. He saved us from the guilt of sin. The only thing that can take away the burden of guilt is the blood of Jesus. “SO, BY VIRTUE OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS, YOU AND I, MY BROTHERS, MAY NOW HAVE CONFIDENCE TO ENTER THE HOLY OF HOLIES BY A FRESH AND LIVING WAY” (Heb.10:19 J.B. Phillips). Man has always tried to provide his own atonement but only Christ can wipe the slate clean and blot out the writing which is written against them. Only He can remove the heavy burden of guilt that causes so many people to live under a gray cloud. Only Christ can forgive sin and give victory over sin. The cross is our hope.
