Forgiveness of Sin
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24 (NIV)
In Christ our sin is dead, so we don’t need to be resuscitating it when we can live in faith of Calvary’s forgiveness. We may war with our sinful flesh because our behaviors are habits we’ve woven over time, but faith in what Jesus Christ did for us on Calvary is stronger. We may battle separately, but alike we stand in conviction that in Christ we have forgiveness of sins.
Because of Calvary we can live the victorious life in Christ through faith. We may stumble and slip in our fallen nature but as we fix our eyes on the Savior we become changed into His likeness.
Let’s pray today that we may run to the foot of the cross regardless of how often it takes.
