Jeremiah In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness. Romans For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

2 Peter 1 – The Sure Christian Life
In that action, by God's grace and through our faith in Christ, we have been freed. Believers are free from the price of our own sin, and from the power of sin to poison our choices.
Now, thanks to Jesus' suffering, Christians can live righteously. We don't have to sin; we are free to make right choices that please and honor our God 1 Corinthians The verse ends by quoting Isaiah , a profound play on words. As Christians, we have been healed from the penalty and power of our sin by Christ's wounds, by His death in our place, by His suffering for our good.
The wounds—the suffering—of Jesus are the means by which Christians are healed—forgiven by God for our sins.
