‘He himself bore our sins’ in his body on the cross,
so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness.

1 Peter 2:24

Embracing the gospel of Christ through believing faith in him is more than just being forgiven of our sin. As believers, we also explicitly embrace a commitment to live for the ‘righteousness’ of the Lord – to live in faithful obedience to the way of life that we have also been called to through our salvation. This is not merely a ‘nice to do’ extra, for those who are more spiritual or who have more time, opportunity or inclination to live like that – but an essential requirement of every believer in the Lord Jesus!
