What did the death of Christ accomplish?
Mala Chindongo explains in this video that in Romans 3, the Scripture is clear that all of sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Even though we are filled with sin, Christ's work on the cross provides a way of redemption - we are bought by the blood of Christ.
The Son of God shed His blood on the Christ and appeased the wrath of God. When Christ died, He took away our sins. He rescued us from the wrath of God.
Romans 6:23 (NKJV) - "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
