|| i·den·ti·ty || part three

// my sin is no longer a part of me the truth is that your sins have not simply been covered, but actually removed from your account. this was not possible in the old testament, but through the precious Blood of Christ, the removal of sins is a reality. "the next day john saw Jesus coming toward, and said 'behold, the lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world!" - John 1:29. "for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins" - Matthew 26:28. and if forgiving us wasn't enough, God himself chose to FORGET our failures for His own sake. when He sees us, He doesn't want to remember our failures, He wants to see us a His precious child who stands blameless before Him. "i will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more" - Hebrews 10:17

// i have peace with God we have been justified and made right with God, therefore we have peace with God. this means that your relationship with God has been restored and you can boldly enter His presence with a clean conscience because of your faith in Christ Jesus and the work that He's done for us on the cross. "therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our lord Jesus Christ" - Romans 5:1.

// i am clothed with the righteousness of Jesus as believers in Christ, there is a great exchange that has taken place. one of the things exchanged is our sin for Jesus' own righteousness. "the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe" - Romans 3:22. "whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. this was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins" - Romans 3:25 "for if, by one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ" - Romans 5:17. Jesus recieved what we deserved (punishment for our sins), and He gave us His righteousness in exchange!
