Jesus’ death paid for our sins - He was punished so we don’t have to be.
Yet we still have the responsibility to put residing sin to death on a daily basis. The same Grace that Justifies - makes us right before God - also Sanctifies - makes us more like Jesus.
Two sides of the one coin of salvation: neither can be separated from the other. God is calling us to be a church that gets to the root
of the problems and digs it out.
is that we find satisfaction in other things rather than Jesus: He is not our first love. However, when He is, His power in us will make the impossible possible - it will put to death sin in our lives!
