Why must the Redeemer be truly God?

  • Answer: That because of his divine nature his obedience and suffering would be perfect and effective.
  • Scripture: God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it. (Acts 2:24)
  • Prayer: Dear God, we pray that you would have mercy on us and take care of us. Remembering that one day we will appear before the judgment-seat of Christ, we thank you that his obedience and suffering on our behalf was perfect and effective. We thank you that you are our heavenly Father and that Christ is our mighty Redeemer. Amen.
