All this focus on ‘sin’ ! How about we focus on the righteousness we have received as a free gift from God – a righteousness that is not dependent on what we do or don’t do, but is dependent on Christ’s love and grace alone.
“I am overwhelmed with joy in the LORD my God, for he has dressed me in garments of salvation. He has draped me in a robe of His righteousness!”
Can our actions subtract from the righteousness He has given us? The glory we have in Christ? The beauty and majesty He has imparted to us through Christ? Is our sin more powerful than God’s majesty? Than Christ’s blood? Christ’s blood consumes our sin, supernaturally, into His body on the cross. Those in Christ are forever free. If we are not, His blood is of no effect to cleanse us.
If we can continue to sin after His blood has cleansed us, if we can go to hell after His blood has cleansed us, then His blood is weak, has limited power. But His blood is not weak. His blood has the power to cleanse us of ALL our sin past present and future. His blood has the power to save us; has the power to make us Children of God; has the power to make us a Royal Priesthood; has the power to make us a Spotless church, without stain blemish or any other wrinkle. His blood alone.
Not our good works. His blood. And only His blood.
His blood has the power to make us:
1. Righteous (Romans 5:17)
2. Holy (Hebrews 10:10)
3. Perfect Forever (Hebrews 10:14).
Come on church!
Will someone give me a good AMEN?!
