Propitiation—to satisfy.  

In his great writing on Fellowship with God the apostle John used the word Propitiation.  Propitiation is one bases of our fellowship with God.  He writes in 1John 4:10, “This is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an propitiation for our sins.”   “How to have an intimate relationship with the resurrected Christ?”  Understanding propitiation gives us motivation toward fellowship.  Propitiation means that Jesus Christ satisfied the perfect standards of a holy God.  Because justice was completely satisfied God will hold nothing against us, and you and I have the confidence to enjoy fellowship with God.

Jay Quine is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary (Th.M., and Ph.D.), the University of Idaho college of Law (J.D.), and Washington State University (B.S.).
