|| i·den·ti·ty || part two

// i am purchased at a steep price i am purchased by the precious blood of the lamb "for you were bought with a price. so glorify God in your body" - 1 Corinthians 6:20. "and they sang a new song, saying 'worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed (or purchased) people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation" - Revelation 5:9. Jesus purchased us with His own blood because of His deep love for us and he deeply desires to have a loving relationship with you and i. "but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" Romans 5:8.

// i am justified and declared innocent if i have repented of my sins and accepted the gift of God (the forgiveness of sins through the precious shed blood of Christ) then God's word tells me that i am justified. "yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified." - Galatians 2:16. the word "justified" in this passage is derived from the Greek word dikaioo, which means, "to render (that is, show or regards as) just or innocent: - free, justify(ier), be righteous". if a person is justified , it means they are made innocent or made just as if they have never sinned.

// i am entitled to a clean conscience since my sins have been put away and removed from me, and we are justified (made right with God) i am entitled to a clean and undefiled conscience. "how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God" - Hebrews 9:14. if i am still beating myself up over my past failures which have been nailed to the cross, i am denying the work that Christ has done for me. a clean conscience before the Lord agrees with what Christ has done in removing my sin and declaring me as justified or innocent before the Lord.
