Thank You, Jesus, for BEARING MY SIN

“…He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.”

 1 Peter 2:24

Does sin weigh you down? It often does me. As long as we’re in our earthly bodies, we’re going to sin. But, and this is big – because Jesus took our sins, we’re both declared righteous and also called to righteousness.

In other words, sin is to be “dying off” in us as as we conscientiously draw close to Jesus. We learn His ways. We practice His teachings. We look at our sins through Jesus’s eyes and don’t want them to be a part of our lives.

We have an upward calling.

Yes, Jesus BORE OUR SINS in His body on the cross. But then He rose to life. And it is in and through His life that we grasp hold of the “so that…”  Jesus suffered “so that” we might die to sin and live to righteousness.”

Thank You, Jesus, for BEARING OUR SINS, so that we can spend eternity with You.

  1. The thought that "sin" is dead in me strretches my mind to it's limits. My mind tells me that I do still sin, yet God's Word tells me that as His child I am not obligated to sin. Oh how I long to keep God's truth in my consciousness throughout the day. That I claim by the power of the Holy Spirit to live in the freedom Jesus Christ has provided for me.
