God has not brought us from our deficit to just dead even in our spiritual account. Christ has done much more than simply pay our debt. Now, in Christ, I have an abundant surplus in my account because God sees me wearing Christ's robe of righteousness.15 I am righteous! And not by works of my own. God has lavished this righteousness to my account fully by His mercy and grace, and I can rest in it.
