2 Corinthians 5:21 Amplified Bible (AMP)
21 He made Christ who knew no sin to [judicially] be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we would become the righteousness of God [that is, we would be made acceptable to Him and placed in a right relationship with Him by His gracious loving kindness].
The crucifixion of Christ and his resurrection accomplished so much for us who are now born again. It was at that cross that the great exchange took place and because of Gods love grace and favor was bestowed upon us who did not deserve it. As the verse says, he who knew no sin became sin on our behalf so that in Him we would be come the righteousness of God. He took what we had and gave us what He had.
When on that Cross he said “It is finished!” the great exchange took place.
He was punished so that we in turn could be forgiven.
He was made sin that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
He was wounded that we might receive healing.
He died so that we in turn may live and have abundant life.
He became a curse that we might receive the blessing.
He bore our shame that we in turn may share in His glory
Jesus endured rejection and ridicule that we might find acceptance with the Father.
He took what we were and gave us what He is and now we are seated with Him in heavenly places and He has bestowed back to us power and authority to overcome the enemy. Wow, what an exchange!
Think about the great exchange that took place on the cross, what does it mean to you as an individual?
Are you walking in the fullness of what Christ made available for you?
