If I, as a sinful creature, continually sin, can I ever be righteous?
2 Corinthians 5:21 “God made him who had no sin to be
sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
Romans 5:19 “For just as through the disobedience of
the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the
one man the many will be made righteous.”
Not only are you forgiven, but you are also considered
righteous by God’s standard. This is hard to believe. It means that even though
we are not perfect and we will still sin, the sins we commit are already
forgiven through the shedding of Christ’s blood on the cross, if we are willing
to confess our sins to Him (Ephesians 1:7).
