Application for Oct 27-28, 2012 :: 1 Peter 2:24

===

1 Peter 2:24

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.

===
This verse of course quotes the Fighter verse from two weeks ago: By his wounds we have been healed.

But this one was written with so much more information. Peter had been around to see some of these wounds as they were being created, and the scars afterword. He was able to personally speak with the man who was crushed for our iniquities. So in Peter we have a reliable source.

And Peter tells us one reason that Jesus died on the cross: to make it possible and to enable us to die to sin and live to righteousness.

Have you died to sin this week? Have you prayed that God would deliver you from the sin that entangles you?

Are you living to His righteousness?
