1 Peter 2:22–25 (ESV):
22 He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in His mouth. 23 When He was reviled, He did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to Him who judges justly. 24 He himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. 25 For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
Jesus endured everything that He did not so that we would stay in our sin but so that we would die to sin and live to righteousness. Faith in Christ releases us from the bondage of sin. Those chains and shackles have been broken, we are free. May we use that freedom to live a sacrificial life for the One that died and rose again! Today, we will be confronted with the opportunity to sin or to be righteous. What will we choose?
Praying for you always. Have a blessed day in your walk with the Lord.
