Part 5: Liberated from sin's horrible harvest

(This is part 5 of 10 parts in this class)


In the Old Testament the Bible tells us,

For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Exodus 20:5-6 - NKJV


Iniquity is visited on the descendants of those who commit it but God shows mercy on those who love Him. How has He shown us as believers this mercy? He has redeemed us from all iniquity (sin's inner character) by the blood of Jesus. In Paul's letter to Titus he writes,

Our Saviour Jesus Christ Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Titus 2:15 - KJV


Jesus gave Himself for us to provide our redemption from all iniquity. This is so important to us; otherwise iniquity could be visited on us and on our children. The redemption Jesus provided has liberated us from the horrible harvest of sin that even holds over for the following generation.
