Romans 6:18 ... Being then made free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness.
Sin no longer has a legal right to force us to do anything.
Colossians 2:14 ... Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His Cross.
The handwriting of sin has been blotted out ... just as if the sin had never happened! When Jesus was nailed to the Cross, His altar, our sin was nailed right there with Him!
This is the way that God looks at it ... and at us. We are made new ... a "Start Over"! Praise God! Thank You, Lord Jesus!
