       Christ’s death and resurrection is everything for us, as Christians, since it gives us a good and righteous standing with God. We now know that, “if we confess our sins to him, he [God] can be depended on to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong” (1 John 1:9, TLB). It is true that for those of us who know Jesus as our Lord and Savior in life—for those of us who are in personal relationship with him—we have more than just a righteous legal standing: again we have peace with God because of Christ’s death and resurrection. Indeed, the Apostle Paul noted in Romans, “So now, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith in his promises, we can have real peace with him because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us” (5:1, TLB). Actually, we had to have ‘faith’ in God by trusting in his Son for the foreignness for our sins, the wrong things we’ve done in the past against God and other people. But our ‘faith’ is our assurance of a right standing with God (see Hebrews 11:1).
