Edifier du Jour-Galatians 2:19-21
19 "For through the Law I died to the Law, so that I might live to God. 20 "I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. 21 "I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly."
We are guilty of sin under the law, but Jesus' death gave us a loophole to escape through; you can't convict a dead man. We're allowed to write our own death certificate by claiming Jesus as our Savior. By claiming Him, we have died with him from a "legal" standpoint and can't be convicted. We're still sinners, but we get off by dying before we can be put on trial.
