Today's Verse : 2 Corinthians 5:21

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. — 2 Corinthians 5:21


Jesus was perfect, spotless, holy, righteous, and clean. Yet he became what he hated, sin. Why would he do such a thing? Because he loved us and wanted us to be what he is today, the righteousness of God.


Almighty and loving Father, thank you for making me holy — your righteousness — by the sacrifice of Jesus. Thank you, dear Savior, for paying such a horrible price, not just by dying on the cross, but also by becoming my sin and carrying away my guilt. All praise to you, dear Father, for your plan, and thanks and glory to you, dear Jesus, for your loving sacrifice. Amen.

  1. The great exchange. He came down to our level to bring us to His level. He came down to draw us from the miry clay. He did not wait for us to come out on our own. He came into the pit to draw us out. And, lifted us up to reign with Him in heavenly places, far above principalities and powers. He brought us from a place where we were nobodies to a place where we are exalted as Kings and Priests unto our God. A people who had no voice, no say, has he raised to be difference makers, who call the shots in the affairs of the earth. Glory and honor be unto His name. Only a loving, faithful, and glorious God could have done such a feat.
