As Christians, we need to know how to respond to the finished works of Jesus. We must recognize everything He has done for us, so that we will not struggle with trying to get something that has already been made available. Healing, deliverance, prosperity, righteousness, forgiveness, and everything else we need are ready for us; we simply need to receive them by faith. This also includes our reconciliation to God. Under the old covenant, man was made righteous by obeying the Law of Moses; however, Jesus’ blood sacrifice on the cross changed that. Now, the emphasis is on our belief, not our works. When God was at war with the sin that originated in the garden of Eden, Christ was the peace offering sent to end it; believing this reconciles us back to God.
