God, as only a loving father would, saw that we needed to be
saved from the condemnation of sin and he sent His only Son,
Jesus as an atoning sacrifice. Jesus took our sin upon himself
when he died on the cross and in His resurrection we are set
free from the stronghold of sin. Through our faith in Christ Jesus
we are made new.
