Read Introduction to 1 John


“And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.”


 to take away our sins,

The words “take away” mean to lift, carry, take up or away, remove.  Jesus paid the price for our guilt.  He took away the penalty for our sins. 

His coming into the world has a purpose.  Jesus came into the world manifested as a man with the mission and commission to take away our sins. 

Jn 1:29, “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, ‘Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!’”

He 10:12, “But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God…”

and in Him there is no sin

Jesus Christ was sinless.  He did not possess a sinful nature.  Sin is incompatible with a relationship with Him.  He and He alone was able to pay for our sins due to His sinless life.  No one ever found one iota of sin in the Son of God.  He is a sinless, spotless, stainless Savior. 

Jn 8:46-47, 46Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? 47He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”

2 Co 5: 21 “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

1 Pe 1:19, “…but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”

1 Pe 2:22, “Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth…”


The Christian is completely free from the guilt of his sin. 


Jesus took our sins so far away that we will never face them again.  Jesus removed all guilt from us.  All guilt is gone.  Our record is completely clean before God.  Sins should never haunt us or hound us again. 

Ps 103:12, “As far as the east is from the west,

So far has He removed our transgressions from us.”

Is 44:22, “I have blotted out, like a thick cloud, your transgressions,

And like a cloud, your sins.

Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.”

Micah 7:19, “He will again have compassion on us,

And will subdue our iniquities.

You will cast all our sins

Into the depths of the sea.”

Ac 13:38-39, 38 “Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; 39 “and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.”

Ga 1:3-5, 3 “Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.”

Ep 1:7, “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace…”

He 1:3, “…who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…”

He 10:17, “…then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

He 9:27-28, 27 “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, 28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.”

1 Pe 2:24, “…who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.”
