It has to be God Himself who pleaded our case. Jesus upholds our cause by sacrificing Himself for our sins. Through Christ light shines on the darkness of our hearts and makes us righteous before God. If we are not covered by the blood of the Lamb then we are subject to the wages of sin…and that is eternal death. Yet, instead of that fate, we have been offered eternal life in Christ Jesus through the power of His death, and resurrection. We have great hope in Christ.
