Do You Love the Word "Propitiation"? Why We Should Use and Explain Big Bible Words

Two months ago I was preaching a series on the gospel, and in one sermon I preached Romans 3:21-26, which includes this gold nugget, talking about Jesus: “…whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith.” (Romans 3:25) Then just the other Sunday, I preached 1 John 2:1-6 as part of our verse-by-verse study through the book of 1 John, which includes this jewel, also talking about Jesus: “He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.” (1 John 2:2)
