“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
God made Jesus who knew no sin to be sin for us. How did Jesus become sin? God made Him sin apart from performing sinful deeds. How did we become righteous? Was it because we did right? No, the Bible says God made us righteous. This might be hard to understand, because we know that we didn’t do right to deserve His righteousness. That unfairly good but that’s grace. It is God’s righteousness at Christ’s expense.
God’s entire wrath came on His son that day. But it wasn’t because Jesus sinned; it was because he received our sins.
When Jesus hunged on the cross, suspending between heaven and earth, heaven didn’t want Him, earth didn’t want Him. Did God not treat Him like He was the world’s worst person? Wasn’t He treated like he was the world’s worst sinner? Even the sun stopped shining on Him. If God treated Jesus like that having received our sin, how much more you, beloved, having received His righteousness can expect to be treated like you are the world’s best person to God? Like you kept every one of God’s commandments, and now you can expect haven to shine on you, because it didn’t on Jesus.
Heaven and hell are real, live for Jesus Christ.
