Our relationship to sin is characterized with the death and burial of Jesus Christ. Sin’s power doesn’t automatically overpower us anymore. Our relationship to God is characterized by Christ’s resurrection.
If you don’t know Christ as Savior, sin is still your master. God wants to free you from sin, and make you alive in Christ.
God is doing something incredible in us when we get saved. It doesn’t mean that we will become sinless, but it does mean that our desires change. Our relationship with our sin changes, because our relation to God has changed. We are dead to sin.
For those who are in Christ sins are forgiven. Our punishment has been given. God’s wrath has been satisfied. Now we are living the benefits, and looking forward to the benefits to come!
Our salvation is sure, because, being justified, we’ve been given peace, access, grace, hope, and love.
