Passage: 2 Corinthians 5:21

My Substitute

…he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.


CHRIST JESUS, in HIS human body, took what I deserve (GOD’s Wrath) so that HE might give me what I don't deserve (GOD’s Righteousness). GOD made HIS SON to be sin for me. In other words GOD THE FATHER punished HIS own HOLY SON as if HE had actually committed all the sins that I am guilty of (past, present, and future). And not only my sins, but the sins of HIS elect were laid on HIM. HE who is guiltless was a SUBSTITUTE for the guilty—Me! HE who is JUST became a SUBSTITUTE for the unjust—Me! And as my SUBSTITUTE, HE paid the price in full for all my sins. I am justified (innocent) by the precious blood of JESUS. He, CHRIST MY SAVIOUR, BY HIMSELF, purged my sins. THEY'RE GONE! GONE! GONE! Never to be remembered against me anymore. As one of GOD’s elect, one of His blood-bought children, no charges can be laid to my account.
