“Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself is fair and just, and he makes sinners right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.” -Romans 3:24-26
Yes, our Lord is the Risen Savior, Redeemer, Savior, and He is Friend.
We are to celebrate Jesus every day because He is Hope, our All In All, and apart from Him, we can do nothing.
Our Savior paid the ultimate price on Calvary to pay our sin debt in full (Romans 4:25). PAID IN FULL (John 19:30). He conquered death, hell, and the grave, and through Him, we have been made more than conquerors and have been made victorious (Revelation 1:18, Romans 8:37).
Because of what Christ did for us, we can rejoice.
Much Love To You All,
