In Whom we have our redemption through His blood, [which means] the forgiveness of our sins.
The sin that stood between man and God has been washed away in Christ Jesus. Praise the Lord for His redeeming blood! He took our sin and gave us His righteousness. This righteousness or right standing with God is a free gift. You cannot earn God’s righteousness. Christians who are “trying” to get right with God are facing a losing battle for once you are born again you have His righteousness and are therefore right with God. It is through this free gift of righteousness given to us that we have the right to all that Christ has provided for us. The devil will try to convince you that you are not right with God. Revelation 12:11 tells us we overcome him by the blood of the Lamb (walking in the reality of our righteousness), by the word of our testimony (confess who you are in Christ and what you therefore have a right to), and we do not love our lives to the death (we now live for God, not for ourselves). So don’t try to get right with God, you already are. Walk in the reality of that truth and you can walk in your righteousness.
