Grace is Jesus. He made us healthy and holy through His sacrifice (Jesus “‘himself bore our sins’ in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; ‘by his wounds you have been healed.'” — 1 Peter 2:24; NIV)
Put Jesus more and more in the center of your thinking so that He can do more and more good in all areas of your life:
“May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.” (2 Peter 1:2; NLT)
- We didn’t deserve to be made righteous; just like Jesus didn’t deserve to be made sin
- What does it mean that the Holy Spirit is our Helper?
Become aware of your identity through the sacrifice of Jesus; you have become the righteousness of God. Expect more and more good from God: “Blessings crown the head of the righteous…” (Proverbs 10:6; NIV)
