6-8 Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. He didn’t, and doesn’t, wait for us to get ready. He presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn’t been so weak, we wouldn’t have known what to do anyway. We can understand someone dying for a person worth dying for, and we can understand how someone good and noble could inspire us to selfless sacrifice. But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him.
Romans 5:6-8 (MSG)
Because of God’s unmerited favor called – Grace. He gave us His only begotten Son, Jesus to die on the Cross, as the “Sacrificial Lamb” so that we may be redeemed from our doomed in sins.
Jesus died for everyone. However, only those who believe in His blood that shed on the cross through Faith, shall receive righteousness in the eyes of God (Romans 3:22). For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus ( Romans 3:23-24). And it is not by your works that are credited to it, but by trusting God who justifies the wicked, like me, through the redemption of the blood of Jesus – then we became righteous (Romans 4:4-5)
Now, for those who “believes” you may now call yourselves — “BLESSED”. David says the same thing when he speaks of the “blessedness” of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:
Blessed is the one
whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.
2 Blessed is the one
whose sin the Lord does not count against them
and in whose spirit is no deceit.
Thanking God for loving me. Thanking God for His Grace. Because of His Grace, His kindness felt prominently that lead me to repentance. I am so blessed. Knowing the power of the cross take us to redemption. IT IS FINISHED!
Now, walking in this ground – Grace, I have …
