At Calvary, Jesus was both our High Priest and sacrificial lamb. When He cried, ‘It’s finished,’ your sins were paid for – from the cradle to grave. And at the minute you trust in Jesus Christ as your savior, you are made righteous. So today, if the devil is beating you up because of your faults and failures, tell him: ‘I may not be perfect but I’m redeemed, loved and accepted by God!’
2 Corinthians 5:21
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
