He Alone Covers Our Sin

Thou hast taken away all Thy wrath: Thou hast turned Thyself from the fierceness of Thine anger. – Psalm 85:3

Whosoever among you, knowing himself to be guilty, who will come and put his trust in Jesus Christ, shall have his sins covered. “Can God do that?” Yes, He can. He alone can cover sin: Against Him the sin was committed. It is the offended person who must pardon the offender. No one else can. He is the King. He has the right to pardon. He is the Sovereign Lord, and He can blot out sin. Beside that, He can cover it lawfully, for the Lord Jesus Christ (though ye know the story, let me tell it again-the song of redemption always rings out a charming melody), Jesus Christ, the Father’s dear Son, in order that the justice of God might be vindicated, bare His breast to its dreadful hurt, and suffered in our room, and place, and stead, what we ought to have suffered as the penalty of our sin. Now the sacrifice of God covers sin-covers it right over; and He more than covers it, He makes it cease to be. Moreover, the Lord Jesus kept the law of God, and His obedience stands, instead of our obedience; and God accepts Him and his righteousness on our behalf, imputing His merits to our souls.

Oh! the virtue of that atoning blood! Oh! the blessedness of that perfect righteousness of the Son of God, by which He covers our sins!..Beloved, such is Jesus Christ, the covering for all our sins. God sees no sin in those who are hidden beneath Jesus Christ. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
