Grace for you today !
Behold Jesus the Bread of Life and experience the immeasurable depth of His Love!
“who ( Jesus) was delivered up because of our offences, and was raised up because of our being declared righteous.”
Romans 4:25 YLT98
This is one of the beautiful verses that changed my way of thinking concerning my righteous identity in Christ.
Logically this is so simple to understand but because of our religious bringing up, our minds are biased to understand.
It is very clear that Jesus came to die for sinners and God had concluded that all have sinned and all need a Saviour.
Since sin must be punished, Jesus also became the sacrifice for our sins. Therefore, Jesus was delivered up to die in our stead for our sins.
Similarly, the above verse proceeds on tne same logic : just the way, in order to save the sinners, Jesus died , so also God raised up Jesus from the dead after making us righteous first . His resurrection is the divine acknowledgment that we are righteous forever . In other words, God would not have raised Jesus up from the dead if any sin still remained unforgiven, preventing us from being righteous. Hallelujah! This is so good to be true and is true indeed!
My beloved, Jesus is not only your Saviour, He is your righteousness too forever ! Amen 🙏
Praise Jesus !
