But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. – 1 John 3:5 (NIV)

Christ was able to take away our sins because He was the only sinless man in the universe. In the same way, that we use fresh cloths to clean a mess, Jesus spotless life took the stain of our sin so that God would see our lives as spotless before Him. Does this seem too good to be true? That is why it is called the gospel, or the good news. God offers this to all of us today.
