Day 23: Having Been Justified By Faith, We Have Peace With God…
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
~2 Corinthians 5:21
For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.
~1 Peter 3:18
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
~1 Timothy 1:15-17
