Overview

Through Christ's death, believers have been credited with Christ's righteousness in the courtroom of heaven and have a new identity. Yet as long as we tread planet earth we are all bound by some level of sin - none of us in this life can fully escape our fallen nature inherited from Adam which dwells in our unredeemed "flesh." Although we will not be fully released from the presence of sin until Jesus returns, we do not have to remain incarcerated by sin. Paul reassures believers that in fact we can have progressive deliverance from the power of sin to live out our new identity in Christ on earth. "Portraits of Righteousness" draws from the Apostle Paul's writings in Romans 5-8 of the Bible to elucidate this life-changing opportunity.
