Taking Care of Sins

2boysAt bedtime, Lillian Holcomb told her two grandsons a Bible story, then asked if they knew what the word “sin” meant. Seven-year-old Keith spoke up: “It’s when you do something bad.” Four-year-old Aaron’s eyes widened. “I know a big sin Keith did today!”

Annoyed, Keith turned to his little brother: “You take care of your sins, and I’ll take care of mine!”

In one sense, we do have the responsibility to take care of our own sins. We need to confess them to God and repent.

But in another sense, only Jesus can take care of our sins for us. We can’t do it on our own.

“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”—John 14:6.
