Redemption for the people of God is a legal fact wherein the Supreme Court of Justice has taken under consideration the disobedience and rebellion of humanity. The Judge of all the earth has so effectively dealt with your sin that it can never be brought up again. In His judgement you are no longer a natural woman or man.
Observing the condition of natural women and men reveals they are “dead through trespasses and sins; they walk according to the lusts of the flesh and the desires of the flesh and mind. They are disobedient, children of wrath, Godless, and without hope in the world. ( Ref. Ephesians 2 ).
I have always liked what Jeremiah Wright calls God’s holy conjunction, But God. “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved” According to Ephesians 2:4-5, God, through faith, liberated you from your natural condition.
Through faith God recreated us by means of the recreation of Christ Jesus when He was made alive after He had been made sin for us. We were made alive and recreated as spiritual women and men in His recreation. All you need do is accept what God has done, and you are no longer seen as natural women and men. The truth of the matter, in the mind of the Father, you have been raised up to sit with Him as the sons and daughters of Light.
