“FOR OUR SAKE HE (GOD THE FATHER) MADE HIM (GOD THE SON) TO BE SIN WHO KNEW NO SIN, SO THAT IN HIM WE MIGHT BECOME THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD (2 CORINTHIANS 5:21.”
Jesus Christ is proved to be righteous by the truth that He knew no sin. Consequently, the grave could not hold Him. Think of that! Read Romans the fourth chapter. In it, Abraham was declared to be righteous, because the righteousness of Jesus Christ was imputed to him. So it is with God’s children today! We are justified by the sinless life, the vicarious death, and the glorious and miraculous resurrection of Jesus Christ. “He saves us, not by works of righteousness which we have done; but, according to his mercy he saves us, by the washing of regeneration, and the renewing of the Holy Ghost (Titus 3:5).”
Not by sacraments; not by oft repeated words of penitence; not by confessing sins to another human being; not by anything conferred on us by a mere man, nothing but the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ! On Calvary His precious blood flowed freely to cover us for the propitiation of our sins; and, only His blood, administered by the power of God’s Holy Spirit can save us from the power of sin and death! There is no other way! The work of Jesus Christ that secured salvation for all who believe, does not require subsequent effort by men to be made perfect! If that were so, then God would not be God! He would not be, as He is in fact, the Sovereign, Almighty, Alpha and Omega of all things!
If you have been taught that Jesus Christ is anything less than He is in Truth, cast that erroneous thinking and teaching away, and come to the Christ of Scripture today! Call on His Name as Lord and Savior (Romans 10:13; Acts 4:12), and be saved!
For the sake of the Lord Jesus Christ, and His glorious Gospel of love and grace,
