“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5.17 NIV).
“Wite-out” is used on paper to cover up mistakes people make when writing or typing letters. This white paste is able to hide the old ink, so something new and correct can be written over the error. Even though the mistake is covered, the deficiency is still obvious to the reader. They see the white paste and note that something incorrect was once written there. Jesus did not go to the cross to merely “wite-out” our sins. He died and rose again to completely eradicate our sins.Jesus' Blood doesn’t just cover up our sin, it infuses into our lives and makes us new. Click To Tweet
The word “justified” comes from the Greek word, dikaiōsis, which describes the act of God removing guilt. The Blood of Jesus Christ lifts the ink of our mistakes from the pages of our life-not even the imprint of the pen can be seen. He took those mistakes with Him in death, and He left them in the grave. He achieved victory over death, and He raised to life so that we could have victory with Him. If we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, the pages of our life will be perfect and blameless—a masterpiece of God’s Words written across our life on earth. No mistakes. No corrections. A seamless life lived for God.
“Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us” (Romans 5.1 NLT).
