Every month I like to include a teaching about the Christ who saved my eternal soul nine years ago.
Christ's atonement is substitutionary, meaning he took the death that we deserve for breaking God's law and then imparted his righteousness to us after salvation. So God see us clothed in the righteousness of Christ. God cannot look at sin. This is known as the Great Substitutionary Atonement but it was also legal. Legality deals with the law. Sin is breaking the law of God. When a law is broken, a punishment is incurred. There is no punishment without law, and there is no law without punishment. When a person is sentenced to time in prison, this is done based upon the requirements of the law. The required sentence upon one who breaks the law of God is death.
2 Cor. 1:9, "indeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves in order that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead."
Paul tells us that we had a "sentence of death." This sentence is due to our breaking the law of God. Therefore, we were legally guilty before God because we broke his law. Furthermore, when Jesus was on the cross, he said "It is finished!" (John 19:30). In Greek it is, "tetelistai," and it was a legal term.
"The sixth word or saying that Jesus spoke from the cross was the single Greek work tetelestai which means 'It is finished.' Papyri receipts for taxes have been recovered with the word tetelestai written across them, meaning "paid in full." This word on Jesus’ lips was significant. When He said, "It is finished" (not "I am finished"), He meant His redemptive work was completed. He had been made sin for people (2 Cor. 5:21) and had suffered the penalty of God’s justice which sin deserved."2
Jesus knew the culture, and he specifically used that word "tetelestai," which was used in legal statements in ancient Israel when a legal debt had been fully paid. Why was this necessary legally? Because sin only has power because of the law (legality) of God. The law has a punishment, and the punishment is death.
- 1 Cor. 15:56, "The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law."
- Rom. 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
The whole atoning work of Christ was a legal action where Jesus substituted himself for sinners and paid the legal requirement of the punishment of sin--death. This is what the scriptures teaches.
If you compare yourself with others you will always find somebody worse that will make you look morally good but if you use the law of Moses, the ten commandments, (have you ever told a lie, have you ever stolen anything, have you ever used God's name in vain, have you ever worshipped anything more than the God that gave you life) Then you are in serious need of a savior on judgement day. Put on Christ like you would cling to a parachute in a plane that was about to crash.
