Jesus loved us so much that He gave up everything in heaven, His sinless Glory, His position as God Himself, to be a man who would die a horrible death on the cross so that we are forgiven all sins and made sinless and righteous! He justified us freely by His blood!
Romans 5 “8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Jesus died on the cross because of the great joy in making us God’s sinless perfect children.
Hebrews 12:2 “Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Jesus is Almighty God, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, through whom all things were created.
The fullness of God’s glory and righteousness was manifest in the body of Jesus, His Son.
His death took away all our sin on the cross.
But His righteousness is greater than all sin of humanity.
He rose from the dead only because His righteousness was so powerful that it destroyed and eradicated all sin.
He rose from the dead only AFTER He took away all the sins of the world forever leaving the world sinless and perfect by His blood.
The resurrection of Jesus is proof that He has removed all sin and made you righteous.
Romans 4 “God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. 25 He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.”
The only reason Jesus rose from the dead is that God’s Righteousness in Christ is infinitely greater than all the sins the world will ever commit.
The only reason He rose from the dead is because the entire world has been made sinless and righteous by His blood !!
God’s Righteousness in Christ has removed all the sins of the world.
God’s Eternal life (in the blood of Jesus) removed all the sins and death of the world.
Jesus then gave God’s righteousness to the entire world – which every believer receives freely.
His glory is so eternal and unending that he gave His righteousness to us without losing it on the cross. He proved it by rising from the dead in His righteousness that He shared with us.
His glory and righteousness is so unending that even all the world’s sins and death on the cross could not keep Him down.
His love, His glory and His righteousness overcame all the sin and death on the cross.
Jesus did all of this on the cross and His resurrection so that we have received the full sinless glory and righteousness of God freely by grace to all who believe!
What an amazing God who loves us that he gave us everything he has !!!
