“For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 6-8, NKJV.
I don’t know how many times I have humbly rehearsed the truth that Jesus took our place. We could have been the ones nailed to the cross and rightfully deserved it. Yet, Jesus took our place, and we have received the immeasurable blessings and grace of God.
You can be glad that you don’t have to pay for what sin requires. It’s a heavy price. It’s a great price, and only One man could pay it all. All of your sins are gone, never to be associated with your life. You stand righteous, whole, and free because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ. You are a clean man. That should make you happy. Refuse to settle for nothing less than the life Jesus paid for you to live.
Prayer: Father, I give You praise and glory today. Thank You, Jesus, for taking my place. Help me to continue to understand Your immeasurable grace toward me and blessing in my life. I have victory over sin, and now I reign through Christ! If You loved me enough to take care of my sin, You love me enough to take care of everything in my life. I will live the life You paid for me to live. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
