There is one who has already paid the penalty for our sin, according to God's purpose. Red symbolizes the blood which He freely shed for us.

Take some time, find a Bible and sit down and read the gospel accounts of Jesus' suffering and death. (Matthew 26 & 27, Mark 14 & 15, Luke 22 & 23 and John 18 & 19) Surely the price He paid with His life would satisfy the penalty of sin for even the most vile and despicable human being. In fact, the means of His death would cause outrage today in America as being so barbaric and inhumane, that even the most horrific serial killer or rapist would be spared the agony that Jesus Christ willingly suffered. And, He committed no wrong.

If all He had done was to offer Himself as an atoning sacrifice for our sins, that would have been profound, even amazing. But He did not stop there. If you continue on with your reading of the gospels, you will read of the account of His resurrection from the dead, His appearance to many and His ascention into heaven.

Jesus conquered death, and in doing so, He confirmed what He had claimed all along, and in fact the very charges that sentenced Him to be crucified. He is the Son of God. But what does that mean to you and me?
