“It will be counted to us who believe in him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord,…”
If Christians don’t have the resurrection, we are people most to be pitied. The resurrection is the proof that the cross is sufficient for the forgiveness of our sins. The resurrection proves God accepted the sacrifice of his Son for our sins to be forgiven.
We are forgiven. In God’s eyes, Jesus’ death now proves our sins are no longer “counted” against us. His life now living in us who believe is “counted” to us as righteousness.
God no longer sees our sins. They are no longer counted against us. They are wiped away forever because of Jesus’ death on the cross and his resurrection from the dead.
