John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God,
who takes away the sin of the world!”

John 1:29

What a momentous thing it was that our Saviour accomplished. On the cross, he took away, not just our individual sins, but the sin of the world. Except for unbelief and blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, he has cleared away every obstacle to God’s forgiveness.
He hell in hell laid low,
Made sin, He sin overthrew,
Bowed to the grave, destroyed it so,
And death by dying slew. (S.W. Gandy)
