I’ve heard people debate over the years,”Who killed Jesus?” Some will say that the Romans killed Jesus. Others blame it on the Jews. But what does the Bible say.
6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
1 Cor 15:3-4
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
So Christ died because of sin and for sinners. Who has sinned?
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Christ didn’t die for his own sins, because he was without sin.
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
It was sin that killed Jesus. My sin. Your sin.
He wants to forgive our sins, he wants to make us clean. That is why he died for you and for me.
1 John 1:8-10
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
If you do what these scripture say you can be free from your sin. Free from the guilt. Free from the shame.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Who killed Jesus? You killed Jesus! I killed Jesus.
