Atonement

Atonement is the process of God drawing sinful separated mankind back to be "at one" with Himself. In the Old Testament this was celebrated on the Day of Atonement. The main feature of the ceremony, the shedding of blood, taught that atonement symbolizes the substitution of life for life. This pointed forward to Christ on the cross to pay for our sin.

Jesus entered heaven to present his blood before God, which makes us clean and acceptable; through faith in the blood of the great reconciler, we can be welcomed back into the arms of our loviing Father. Because of Jesus, the atoning Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, we are accepted as righteous. We are declared; NOT GUILTY!
