Acquittal

“Yet through his powerful declaration of acquittal, God freely gives away his righteousness. His gift of love and favour now cascades over us, all because Jesus, the Anointed One, has liberated us from the guilt, punishment, and power of sin!” Romans 3:24 TPT

Jesus, the Anointed One
Has freed us from the guilt of sin
Taken all our punishment
Broken sin’s chains which held us in
So we can receive God’s righteousness 
And live a life full of God’s goodness

On the cross as He was dying
Jesus took our sins into him
Took to His death the burden
The body of our sinful person
So we could all be freed
To righteous life through His resurrection

In this public declaration
In His beloved Son’s execution 
God revealed His answer to sin
The death that we could take in Him
To free us from sin broken hearts
To kill the power of sin over us

In Jesus’ resurrection 
We see God’s public declaration
Of the power of righteous living
To give us the total freedom
To live as God’s beloved Children
In the fullness of His kingdom

When we choose Jesus as our Saviour
His death is ours, from sin to free us
And His righteous resurrection 
Gives us our new life and direction
Living life at God’s right hand
Enjoying God’s love, favour and blessing

All this God has freely given
Though His Son’s life it cost Him
His love would not leave humanity broken
Bound in sin, doomed to destruction
Instead He raised them all to heaven
To live the righteousness He’s given

To the suffering of this world
God has provided the only answer
To remake a sin broken people
In the image of His Son Beloved
So we can live His righteousness 
Healing this world with His graciousness
