Everything that was required to be restore you to your God-likeness, Christ has provided it. And every last piece of condemning evidence that was written out against you, Christ nailed it to His cross. All of it!
Considering the fullness of Christ sacrifice, and the completeness of His offering to God – the offering of His own life – what could there possibly be left for us to add? What could we possibly do to improve on what God, in Christ, has already accomplished? Your Father has gone to such great lengths to secure your freedom in His Son; He went so far as to come into union with humanity in our corrupted condition (“While we were still sinners, Christ died on our behalf” Rom. 5:8), and to offer us the death of Jesus as a means to our own death to Sin once and for all, and to raise us up, having been united with Christ, in the newness of His resurrection, into a brand new existence! There is nothing you can do to add to, or to take away from, what has been procured and provided by Christ! All that’s left for you to do is: Believe. Trust.
