1 Peter 2:21-25 – 21For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps,22who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth;23and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously;24and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.25For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls. (NASB95)
2 Corinthians 5:21 – 21He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. (NASB95)

A word about Maranatha Bible Church
I daily thank the Lord for bringing us to Maranatha Bible Church. It is thrilling to be part of a body that is committed to the glory of God, the supremacy of Christ, the sufficiency of the Holy Spirit, the authority of the Word of God, and a love of the brethren. God has used this family to stretch me, grow me, and mold me into the image of His Son. It is a joy and a privilege to serve the Lord at Maranatha as we grow together into Christ Jesus our head.
