Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 15:12-19; 1 Corinthians 15:20-28; 2 Corinthians 5:11-16; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21
As Jesus hung on Calvary, He took on our sin debt to redeem us from the law. His death satisfied God’s divine law to overcome the problem of sin and the condemnation of death. When God looks at us, He sees only the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ.
All the sin of the world for all time – every millennium, every age – was placed on the person of Jesus Christ at Calvary. When Jesus rose from the dead, He was victorious over sin and death, destroying death’s authority over us.
From the moment of resurrection, Jesus shares this victory with all who believe in Him. This victory is a gift of grace. God forgives the sins of everyone who accepts His Son as their Lord and Savior.
Every believer can live life in great anticipation of spending eternity in the presence of our Lord.
