Saved From Sin-Not In Sin

2 Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him”.

Jesus Christ death; the message is unbelievable, a message of redemption, which is a substitution for sin. This is one of the great verses proclaiming the unbelievable love of God. It is impossible for man to grasp the fact that God made Christ to be sin for us, yet that is exactly what the scripture says. He who knew no sin made to be sin, because the sole that sins shall surely die, so for man to live Christ had to die.
Why was this act necessary? Because man needed more than just righteousness to stand perfect before God. To stand righteous before God is not enough, because man has already sinned. Man already stands guilty of breaking God’s law, and the judgement and condemnation of death has already taken effect upon man. So the condemnation and judgement of sin had to be taken care of. God did this by laying all the sins of man upon Christ, all the guilt and condemnation of sin, God placed it all on Christ and allowed Him bear it all Himself. God’s purpose for this was that we through Christ death, might be made righteousness of God in Christ. When a person believes in Jesus Christ, I mean really believes, God takes that man’s faith and He counts it as righteousness. The man is not righteous, but God considers the man’s faith in Christ as righteousness. God does this because he loves man so much, that he sent His only begotten Son to die that we might have a right to life. Jesus secured righteousness for man. He came into the world to die for man. He came and arose from death and thus conquered death for man. His resurrected life could stand for the resurrected life of the believer.
The truth is this, God loves His Son Jesus Christ so much, that He honors any man who honors His Son by believing in Him and believing Him. When we sincerely trust Christ, God takes that faith and counts it as righteousness, thus He judges us , and treats us, as though we are innocent. We are not innocent, us and God both knows this, but God counts us as innocent because of our faith in Jesus Christ. In the eyes of God, our faith says we have died with Christ and rose a new creation in Christ who is the righteousness of God..
