John 15:13
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

Are you willing to lay your life down for your friend?  Better yet, your enemy?

While we were still sinners, far from God, Jesus came and died for us.  He loved us enough to take our sin, shame, and sickness (Isaiah 53).  He took it all upon Himself so that we could have right standing with the Father.  

Jesus came and fulfilled the law for us, now when God looks at us He see's us as His blameless children (2 Cor 5:21).   That right there is a BIG deal.  We can now come to the Father with boldness knowing that we have been forgiven!  

1 Peter 2:24 tells us that Jesus "bore our sins"  He already took care of them, now we can live FREE!  We have right standing with God, we are considered righteous!  Psalms 5:12 tells us that the righteous are surround by favor!  

Today, know you have right standing with God because of what Jesus did for you.  He died for sinners so that by faith they could become righteous.
