Col 1:13-14 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Redemption in the Greek. liberation procured by the payment of a ransom
Heaven gave it all up. His son came, died on the cross, by his faith he was raised from the dead. He gave his whole life for you. Paid in full, not one penny left in heaven. You have been delivered. Sin has no dominion over you! Romans 6:14
For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
You are the righteousness of him! You are as you ought to be! There is nothing to be desperate for. There is nothing else that needs to be done, you can’t add to your righteousness. What you can do is believe in your righteousness!
Col 22 He accomplished this in dying our death in a human body; he fully represented us in order to fully present us again in blameless innocence, face-to-face with God; with no sense of guilt, suspicion, regret, or accusation; all charges against us are officially cancelled. The Mirror
