Substitution by Jesus

But there is a way that can change the nature and desires of a human being.

To redeem and restore human beings, God made His Son Jesus Christ assume the sins of humanity (2 Cor 5:21). Although Jesus Christ's life was exemplary, it was His death of atonement that was of supreme significance.

When one genuinely knows Jesus Christ, then one can gain a sense of the full depth and power of sin: a) the need to repent, b) to change human nature through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, which is c) bestowed through faith in Jesus Christ as the only exclusive means of restoring a relationship with God.

And Jesus answered and said to them, "It is not those who are well who need a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance." (Luke 5:31-32)

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. (John 14:6)
