Standing in our place, Jesus suffered during his years on earth,especially in the tortures of the cross.He carried God’s judgment on our sin—his sacrifice removed our guilt.God raised him from the dead:

he walked out of the grave, conqueror of sin and death— Lord of Life!We are set right with God, given new life,and called to walk with him in freedom from sin’s dominion.
