He did it for us…
For He made Him
who knew no sin
to be sin for us,
that we might become
the righteousness of God
~2 Corinthians 5:21~
What a gift from God…
God made Jesus, who knew NO SIN…
Who was perfect in every sense, in whom NO-FAULT could be found, who was PURE, who was completely INNOCENT, whose motivations and intentions were UNBLEMISHED…
To BE SIN
To carry, to be weighed down, to take on himself…
For you and I, for every individual person, no matter who they are, no matter their race, color, creed, or station, he did it for each one. So that we might not have to go through receiving the penalty of our sin.
THAT WE MIGHT BECOME THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD… IN HIM
If only we will recognize our frailty, our weakness, our shortcomings, and see our need for his perfect sacrifice and accept it, in place of our load of sin.
If we accept his gift to make us whole and complete in Him, the father will only see His righteousness when he looks at us. And then we can truly be by his side.
Together with him, in him and through him. We may be broken in places, but in him we are whole.
