Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.Gal. 1.3-5
Jesus gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, the greek word “rescue” is deliver in KJV, but it’s the same word that Jesus uses when he tells you to gouge out your eye if it sins.
it means to pick out, like out of a bucket, you would pick out one pear for yourself. and it actually has the connotation of “for oneself” with it, so Jesus didn’t just die on the cross for us to live with him in eternity, he gave himself for our sins for NOW.
