Christ Jesus bore the wrath of God that we might never bear it. He has made a full atonement to the justice of God for the sins of all believers. Against him that believeth there remaineth no record of guilt; his transgressions are blotted out, for a Christ Jesus hath finished transgression, made an end of sin, and brought in everlasting righteousness.
What a comprehensive word then is this — "salvation"! It is a triumphant deliverance from the guilt of sin, from the dominion of it, from the curse of it, from the punishment of it, and ultimately from the very existence of it. Salvation is the death of sin, its burial, its annihilation, yea, and the very obliteration of its memory; for thus saith the Lord: “their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”
[Charles Haddon Spurgeon]
And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Colossians 2:13
For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Hebrews 10:14
To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. Acts 10:43
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Ephesians 1:7 ♥
