Jesus became our sin
The most encouraging thing about Easter is what Jesus did for you and me on the cross. He became sin for us before God. He became our sin. He took the punishment, guilt and shame for our sin.
Hiding our shame
Not just guilt, but even more, shame is in the secret core of our hearts. Need proof? Honestly, do you feel genuinely accepted by others? Do you feel you really measure up? Are you hiding things about yourself from others? Whatever you’re hiding is where you feel shame.
He removes the stain
Easter proclaims an incredible redemption! When you put your trust in Jesus and his sacrifice for you on the cross, he removes the stain of guilt and shame. You can be free! That is the most encouraging thing.
