MANY DO NOT REALIZE THAT IN CHRIST, OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS A PERSON AND HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST. NOT ONLY SO, HE IS ALSO OUR HOLINESS AND REDEMPTION. GLORY TO GOD!
(1Cor 1:30) “It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.”
BEAR IN MIND THAT THE LAW WAS GIVEN, BUT GRACE AND TRUTH CAME IN PERSON.
(John 1:17) “For the law was given through Moses; Grace and Truth came through Jesus Christ.”
WHEN CHRIST CAME, HE MEDIATED A NEW COVENANT OF GRACE WITH THE FATHER. AND UNDER THIS COVENANT, HE DIED AS A RANSOM THAT SETS US FREE FROM ALL THE SINS WE HAVE COMMITTED.
(Hebrews 9:15) “For this reason Christ is the mediator of a New Covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.”
REMEMBER, UNDER GRACE (NEW COVENANT), SIN CANNOT HAVE DOMINION OVER US!
(Romans 6:14-15) “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. WHAT THEN? SHALL WE SIN BECAUSE WE ARE NOT UNDER LAW BUT UNDER GRACE? CERTAINLY NOT!”
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
