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.
~ 2 Corinthians 5:21
When Jesus went to the cross, He did what you and I never could. He reconciled sinful man with a Holy God. He reached up to take the hand of God and reached down to grab yours.
Redemption is not the end of the story. There is another side to the cross that many Christians don’t even know exists because the Church stopped preaching it.
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
~ 2 Corinthians 8:9
Christ took your Sin. Have you taken His Righteousness? He took your poverty. Have you taken His Riches? He took your sickness. Have you taken His divine health? He took your shame. Have you taken His glory?
He stepped into YOUR place. But have you stepped into His?
