What gift do we receive through Jesus?

Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when He freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed His life, shedding His blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when He held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, (Romans 3:24-25 NLT)

What gift do we receive through Jesus?  We have nothing in us to make us right with God.  We have nothing to make us righteousness on our own.  Our righteousness is like filthy rags.  Our righteousness comes as a gift from God through His grace and mercy because of what Jesus has done for us.  By faith when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and confess our sins we are seen as righteous because of Christ’s atoning blood.  We are covered by His blood.  He died for us so that we can be declared righteous.  There IS power in the blood!
