Once And For All

The God who owes me nothing has given me everything through his Son, Jesus Christ. Grace, faith, and justification are mine because of His sacrifice. I know hope; I taste joy; I experience peace; and I anticipate a perfect eternity because of Jesus Christ.

"This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God , and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him [Jesus] as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his [Jesus'] blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished - he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus." Romans 3:22-26

"...we have been made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when this priest [Jesus] had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he [Jesus] sat down at the right hand of God. Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy." Hebrews 10:11-14
