Most of us understand that the shed blood of Jesus Christ atoned for the sins of all who believe in Him. We know that we deserve only God’s wrath, so we praise Jesus for taking that wrath in our place. His work on the cross fills us with unspeakable joy!
But the Lord didn’t stop at merely saving us from wrath. In addition to taking our sin upon Himself, He credited us with His righteousness. When He lived on earth, He lived in perfect obedience to the Father — He never sinned once! As He bore our sin, so we bear His righteousness in the eyes of the Father.
At the end of this earthly life, each person ever created will stand before the Judgment Throne of God. Christians can hide in Christ’s righteousness, praising Him for providing the double cure for sin.Follow my blog with Bloglovin
