Galatians 2:16 — Man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ (NKJV).
You did it again. You just can’t seem to help it. For whatever reason, this particular vice has you. You’re drawn to it; you self-medicate with it. It’s what people have come to expect, but this time you’ve gone too far. You’ve messed up big time, and the potential fallout could hurt many.
The cover-up begins. It’s what you do. You sin and then interfere with the proof of your involvement. What others don’t know can’t hurt them, and it would be a shame to involve the innocent. Once again, reasoning clouds your better judgment, and the cycle continues.
Jesus came to break the cycle. When you received Him, He showed up and tampered with the scene of your crime. He erased the evidence of sin by making you righteous, and He removed your guilt through justification. God has declared you to be innocent on all accounts. No elaborate cover-up scheme is needed. You are justified by faith in Jesus Christ. Put your faith in His finished work, and it’s just as if you never sinned!
