Purified by the blood of Jesus

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— 26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. Rom 3:23-26 (NIV)

“Our justification is not simply a matter of God’s pardoning our guilt; our need can be met only if righteousness, full and entire holiness of character, is credited to us. This is the amazing gift of grace. Christ’s law-keeping and perfect righteousness are made ours by faith in him. It is not simply that our whole guilt, even to every tiniest shortcoming in life’s moral examination, is overlooked; more than that – we pass 100%, we pass with perfect righteousness!” Bruce Milne, Know The Truth.

By the blood of Jesus there is no guilt, no shame and no condemnation.
