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 NIV +
Written by Jung
Talking about trading places, I believe that’s representative of our relationship with Jesus. He took on our sins, and in turn, we gained and became his righteousness.
So, what does it mean for us to embody his righteousness?
Firstly, just as Jesus had a choice, so do we. We must aspire to embrace his righteousness.
Secondly, we are not the fruit of our own work, but of Jesus’. This entails following his guidance rather than our own.
Thirdly, and in my view, most crucially, we shouldn’t confine ourselves with thoughts like ‘It’s impossible,’ ‘I lack the ability,’ or ‘I’m unworthy.’
When we genuinely surrender and learn to follow our Good Shepherd, we’ll grasp the immense power of Jesus, our capabilities in him, and how precious we are in Christ.
