“ Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven,
And whose sins are covered;
Blessed is the man to whom the LORD shall not impute sin.”

-Romans 4:7-8

The good news is that the blessed man described here, is not one who has striven, overcome, and lives in perfect holiness. No, The blessing comes upon one who has practiced lawlessness, one who really does have sin in his account. However, the key words here in these verses are “Forgiven” and “Covered”.

Who is righteous? Who can stand? No one, no not one! We have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God, but in Jesus Christ we have redemption! His atoning death covers our lawless deeds and sins. Furthermore His righteousness was imputed to us as Christ bore God’s holy wrath against our sins, and thus the blessing is upon us! We are His children, His beloved bride. We are blessed more than all peoples!
