One of the most outstanding things God has said deals directly with Himself, you, and me. 2 Corinthians 5:21"For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." It is beyond our little minds to fully comprehend how God, who spoke and the vast universe came into being, humbled himself and became a human so that he could suffer and die for what we have done wrong. Amazing grace--amazing love!
He became sin, who knew no sin
That we might become His righteousness
He humbled himself and carried the cross
Love so amazing, love so amazing
Jesus Messiah, name above all names
Blessed redeemer, Emmanuel
The rescue for sinners, the ransom from Heaven
Jesus Messiah, Lord of all Chris Tomlin
Some deeper thoughts about this great event in history that we celebrate this weekend. "Christ knew no sin. He was made Sin; not a sinner, but Sin, a Sin-offering, a Sacrifice for sin. The end and design of all this was, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him, might be justified freely by the grace of God through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus. Can any lose, labour, or suffer too much for Him, who gave his beloved Son to be the Sacrifice for their sins, that they might be made the righteousness of God in him?" Alexander MacLaren
