What does that mean?
Romans 4:8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin."
God will not impute your sins against you because He imputed all your sins, for your entire lifetime, to Jesus. God placed the sins of the whole world on Jesus. Jesus was our substitute. He was our sacrificial Lamb. He took our place, as a sinner, on the cross and gave us His place as a righteous son. Jesus made one sacrifice that, once and for all, has put our sins out of God’s sight. Jesus took His own blood, by the Spirit of Holiness, into the tabernacle in Heaven that God made and not man. He placed His blood on the Mercy Seat in heaven. Now between God’s eyes and man’s sin is the blood of Jesus. Jesus’ blood, which speaks better things than that of Abel, forever, testifies to God that our sins have been paid for in full. Jesus purchased our forgiveness. Jesus died as our Substitute, our sacrificial Lamb but He resurrected as our High Priest and Mediator. He now stands between us and the Father. He represents us to the Father and the Father to us. God never sees us, nor does He see our sins. He sees Jesus who is standing between us and Him. Therefore since we have a perfect High Priest we can boldly go to our Heavenly Father and make our request to Him.
It would be illegal for God to count a Christian’s sin against him. If He did that would mean that Jesus died in vain. Therefore there is now no condemnation in Christ Jesus. All Christians would are under condemnation do not understand what took place on the cross. All Christians who believe they are unworthy of God do not understand their redemption in Christ and they have made the cross of no effect in their lives.
