2. Jesus overcome the old order of sin and death
Ever since the Garden of Eden Satan had been tempting, deceiving and then accusing people. His work was to lead them into sin and rebellion against God. His goal was to separate people from the love of God through guilt and shame. He works with our human laziness, ignorance, selfishness, insecurity and desire for material things and human approval. The result is human pollution by guilt and shame. The Holy Spirit cannot live in such spiritual pollution so people become separated from God and died spiritually. They had no hope of eternal spiritual life.
3. Jesus death and Resurrection created a new way for sins to be forgiven.
Christians believe that Jesus was sinless and died for the sins of others. We believe, as we say in the Creed in “the forgiveness of sins” The Bible teaches us that we can repent, confess our specific sins to Jesus, ask for forgiveness and receive forgiveness. We can do this privately at home or during worship services. There is a profound scene in the movie The Passion where Satan confronts Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane and questions whether Jesus can die for the sins of the whole world. The later scene of Satan screaming in rage, underground, beneath the Cross answers this question. This is the New Covenant of Jesus.
