LIFE THROUGH HIS BLOOD

 “For this is my blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins (Matthew 26:28)

The word “remission” in the opening verse doesn’t merely refer to the forgiveness of sins; it means the removal of sins. The blood of Jesus is the propitiation for sins; therefore, those that believe in Jesus should no longer be held accountable for their sins! That’s why the Bible says, Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1). He has taken full responsibility for your wrongs.

NOT GUILTY!

gulty “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1)

The Bible lets us know that Jesus wasn’t only delivered on account of your sins, He was also raised for your justification(Romans 4:25). To be justified means to be declared not guilty; that is, to be declared righteous. Thus, in the eyes of God, you never sinned.

There’s a difference between justification and forgiveness. The Apostle Paul, in the opening verse, wasn’t talking about forgiveness, or remission. He was talking about justification – to be declared not guilty. The Bible says God justifies the ungodly: “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness” (Romans 4:5). You might be wondering, “How could that be?” Simple, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). The new creation is a new being; a brand new species that never existed before. Thus, he has a clean slate as it were, for he is without a past. That’s why God declared him “not guilty” because there’s nothing to judge. Praise God!

CHRIST IS YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS

 “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption” (1 Corinthians 1:30)

Christ Jesus has been made unto us righteousness. In other words, when God looks at us who believe in Jesus, He sees us as righteous, not because of the flawlessness of our christdeeds, but because Jesus has become our righteousness.

Romans 4:25 lets us know that Jesus was “delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.” He was delivered to death for your offences; on account of your sins, and was raised for your justification. Jesus bore all the pain, shame, and torture on your account (Read Isaiah 53:5-7). He took upon Himself all that you were supposed to suffer so you won’t have to go through them anymore.

RECEIVE FORGIVENESS

 forgivenessIf we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9)

Jesus is the propitiation and appeasement for our sins. The Bible says in 1 John 2:1-2, “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” The Blood of Jesus is the remedy for every sin; there’s no sin that can’t be cleansed by the blood of Jesus. So as a Christian, if you’ve done anything wrong, God’s not mad at you; what He expects is that you take advantage of the provision He’s made for the forgiveness of your sin.
