HOW DID CHRIST BECOME “SIN” WITHOUT SINNING?
CHRIST BECAME SIN WITHOUT SINNING BECAUSE GOD IMPUTED ALL OUR SINS IN HIS BODY ON THE CROSS.
HOW DID WE BECOME “RIGHTEOUS” WITHOUT BEING RIGHTEOUS?
WE BECAME RIGHTEOUS WITHOUT BEING RIGHTEOUS BECAUSE GOD IMPUTED RIGHTEOUSNESS IN US WHEN WE BELIEVED IN CHRIST JESUS.
(2Cor 5:21) “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”
BEAR IN MIND THAT IT IS NOT OUR OBEDIENCE THAT MADE US RIGHTEOUS AND IT IS NOT OUR OBEDIENCE THAT WILL KEEP US RIGHTEOUS BEFORE GOD. WE ARE MADE RIGHTEOUS BECAUSE OF THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST. (Rom 5:19) “For just as through the disobedience of the one man (Adam) the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man (Jesus) the many will be made righteous.”
HOWEVER, AFTER WE RECEIVED THE “GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS” FROM GOD, WILL WE BE FILLED WITH THE “FRUIT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS” THAT COMES THROUGH CHRIST JESUS.
(Php 1:11) “Filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.”
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
