“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 25 For “you were like sheep going astray,”[f] but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. (I Peter 2:24-25 NIV)
True Christians cannot take credit for their own salvation. We didn’t even want to do what is right. We were lost in our sins and selfishness. But Jesus died so that all who truly repent and believe will be saved for goodness by His goodness.
