Happy Wednesday Saints.
Here is 2Corinthians 5:21 in the Amplified Bible “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 RIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM BY HIS GRACIOUS LOVINGKINDNESS.”
Everything that God does is right and just. The word “JUDICIALLY” relates to the administration of justice. The justice that was supposed to be administered for our lawlessness was placed upon Christ.
The gospel is GOOD NEWS. It’s not good advice, good guidance, good wishes, a good recommendation, or a good idea – it’s GOOD NEWS.
We are not saved by wishful thinking. We are saved by FAITH. Faith is not wishful thinking. Faith is being CERTAIN. It’s about being FULLY CONVINCED that Jesus fulfilled all the necessary legal requirements to make us RIGHT with God. Jesus paid the ultimate price for God to declare us “NOT GUILTY” of sin.
The moment you try to make yourself right with God, or the moment you try to approach Him in any other way apart from Christ – you immediately fall short. The moment you try to be “good enough”, you place yourself under a yoke that is impossible for you to carry. Remember, it only takes ONE wrong for you and me to fall short of God’s glorious standard.
But Jesus! Hallelujah… thank God for Jesus. He JUDICIALLY became sin for us so that we could JUDICIALLY become righteous.
He fulfilled ALL of God’s laws so that God could legally pronounce you “innocent” of any wrongdoing.
If you let Christ’s perfect record clear your conscience and remove your guilt – then you can live a life FREE of condemnation.
God bless, and lots’a love,
