God says the believer is sinless in Christ

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.”

Many believers say they commit sins.

But God sees the believer as Righteous and sinless.

Sin is the breaking of the law commandments (1 John 3:4) where even one sin results in death (James 2:10, Romans 6:23, 5:12)

The law demanded righteousness by works but Nobody can be sinless by their works.

Therefore Jesus obeyed the law without sinning and then He died for our sins.

Jesus rose from the dead without our sins.

Our sins were nailed to the cross. Forgiven forever.

The law also ended on the cross (Eph 2:15-16, Col 2:13-14, Romans 10:4)

The believer died to the law on the cross. We are not under any commands. Therefore we are not sinners.

Galatians 2 “19 “For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. 20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

Jesus who obeyed the law already lives in us. His righteousness has been gifted to us.

God sees Christ and His Righteousness in us because we believe.

God looks only at faith in Jesus and not our works (law).

Faith in Christ makes you righteous, not works!

We may do good and bad works but it is not sin because we are not under the law/commandments.

We cannot sin because we are not under law but in Christ.

There are no commands to believers because we are already righteous!

God does not see our works anymore. He sees the Risen Christ in us.

Therefore the believer is sinless because we and our sins died with Christ and the righteous Christ lives in us.

God says that the believer is righteous without any works, forgiven all sins, sinless and perfect because Jesus died and rose again to live in us.
