Appreciating Salvation: Propitiation

We will more deeply appreciate our salvation when we understand why Jesus is called our propitiation. These important words shed a world of light on how good God has been in providing such a rich salvation.

Romans 1:18,1:32,3:9,3:19,3:21-26,5:9
Genesis 9:5-6
Hebrews 2:17,2:14
1 John 2:1-2,4:9-10
1 Thessalonians 1:10

Sermon discussion questions for parents to use with their children:

  • What does propitiation mean?

  • Why can God not just forgive us of our sin... why did Jesus have to die?

  • How is Jesus our propitiation?

  • What are the implications for us when we sin that Jesus is our propitiation?

  • Why is it important that God sent the propitiation and how does this make the God of the Bible so different than the old Greek gods?
