We’re incarcerated by our previous. Now we have been discovered responsible! Our executioner’s footsteps echo in opposition to stone partitions. We sit on the ground of the dusty cell, awaiting our ultimate second. We don’t search for as he opens the door. We all know what he’s going to say.
“Time to pay on your sins.” However we hear one thing else!
“You’re free to go. They took Jesus as a substitute of you!”
The door swings open, the guard barks, “Get out.”
And we discover ourselves shackles gone, crimes pardoned, questioning what simply occurred? Grace simply occurred! Christ took away your sins. Romans 3:24 says,
“God in his gracious kindness declares us not responsible. For God despatched Jesus to take the punishment for our sins. We’re made proper with God once we consider that Jesus shed his blood, sacrificing his life for us.”
What occurred? Grace occurred!
