Romans 3:21-22; 4:1-5; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 4:20-24
He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed.
Jesus’ parable about the young son who left his father’s house to seek his own sinful pleasure is an example of how God welcomes us as sinners into His family. Just like the young son could never pay for the sin he had committed against his father, we cannot pay our own sin debt. God credits Jesus’ righteousness to us, making us holy before Him.
Thankfully, God does not just leave us in the broken world, but is repairing the brokenness through His Son. From the very beginning of time, God promised He would fix creation, and He kept His promise by sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus came to live on the earth and willingly died on the cross so that sin’s power over creation would be broken forever.
