Grace for you today !

“For He (God) made Him ( Jesus ) who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (Christ).” II Corinthians 5:21 NKJV
This is a marvellous verse in the Holy Scriptures.
Jesus knew no sin ( as seen above )
Jesus did no sin ( 1 Peter 2:22)
In Jesus was no sin ( 1 John 3:5)
So, how was Jesus made sin when He knew no sin, did no sin and in Him was no sin ?
The answer is found in the same verse. God made Jesus to be sin and Jesus on His part, received our baggage to become sin. For whom ? For us ! Because God so loved the world ( you and me) that He made Jesus to become sin for us. What a mind blowing love, full of passion and compassion! Hallelujah!
But what is the purpose? The same verse says “that we might become the righteousness of God in Christ”. This is the purpose of His suffering for us.
How do we become the righteousness of God in Christ? The same way Jesus became sin who knew no sin. So also, God made us the righteousness of God in Christ who know no righteousness. We need to passionately receive this gift of righteousness.
Jesus who knew no sin, did no sin and in Him was no sin, became sin so also, we, who know no righteousness, did no righteous act and in us is no righteousness become the righteousness of God in Christ.
You are expected to receive this truth wholeheartedly ( this is believing ) and confess with your mouth that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. ( Romans 10:10).
My beloved, let’s believe and confess this throughout this day, during this week and the rest of our life. Amen 🙏
