Hi, God gave me something in Romans 4:23-25 which says, “The words, “it was credited to him” were written not for him alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.”
So what God gave me is, that those who believe, (Christians) have the words, “it was credited to him”, apply to themselves. And the only way that Christians get that it through Jesus. Because Jesus died for us and took away our sin, we get the credit.
Jesus took the punishment, we get the credit.
