Hello Church Family,
New City Catechism Question 20
Who is the Redeemer?
The only Redeemer is the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, in whom God became man and bore the penalty of sin himself.
Two words in this answer really stand out to me. First, the word, “only.” There is only one Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ. No one else, and no thing else can redeem humanity.
Second, the word, “himself.” God himself bears our penalty and atones for our offences. This is sheer mercy and true forgiveness. The One to whom we owe a debt we can not pay, pays the debt on our behalf.
