My Utmost – The Nature of Reconciliation

He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him —2 Corinthians 5:21

“Other faiths deal with sins— the Bible alone deals with sin. It is revealed throughout the Bible that our Lord took on Himself the sin of the world through identification with us, not through sympathy for us. And now anyone can experience that reconciliation, being brought into oneness with God, on the basis of what our Lord has done on the cross.”  http://utmost.org/the-nature-of-reconciliation/

 

He who knew no sin

was made to be sin for us

that we might be right

 

He took on our sin

so that our sins might not reign

He died once for all

 

we have died to sin

buried with Christ in baptism

raised to walk in Him

 

the newness of life

means never to die again

alive by God’s grace
