14. He is sin for us.
He did not only take sins away but he became sin so that we can become His righteousness. 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.” We must mind our confessions because confession goes before possession. If you do not want to see evil, don’t say it. It pays to regularly confess “I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.”
- Lord Jesus, you made us the righteousness of God. You took our sins. You who knew no sin was made sin for us, so that we can be the righteous, the redeemed. Thank You Jesus. I celebrate you Jesus. This is mind blowing. It is what only you can do. I celebrate you for doing this for me.
- Thank you for taking my sins away. Thank you for nailing them on the cross. Thank You for being sin for me. Now I am righteous. Thank you so much. Amen.
15. The One who makes us righteous.
2 Cor. 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.” He not only makes us righteous, he is our righteousness. Righteousness refers to the state of right standing relationship with God. The bible says that our righteousness is like filthy rags; no one can earn it because it is not by works of righteousness but by grace alone. Grace is unmerited favour. I love quoting this scripture on a daily basis – “I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.” Making this proclamation will silence the voice of self condemnation. It silences the voice of the adversary and takes away your eyes from you to the One that we should focus on.
