Imagine sitting in a physician’s examining room awaiting test results. The doctor eventually enters clutching pages of documents. As the test results are read, many words are difficult to understand; those you recognize point to a serious diagnosis. Left unchecked, your condition is fatal.
Treatment options are presented for you to choose:
? Ignore the problem, refuse to acknowledge its existence, and live to the best of your ability.
? Treat the symptoms without changing the underlying cause.
? Aggressively attack in order to root out and eradicate both the disease and its cause.
Most of us would select the last option.
Sin is fatal. Left to run its course, it ends in death. Treatment is invasive, though much less painful than imagined, and extremely effective. And, while not covered by insurance, the price has already been paid.
Jesus, the Lamb of God takes away the sins of the world. He alone changes the prognosis from death to life everlasting.
