Righteousness In Him

For the past few days and the last couple of blogs,
I have been pondering 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.'

The righteousness of God? Me? Come now, how
can that be true? God can't mean this? Maybe a
mistake in translation? Maybe after I die?

Think of it from this point of view: God, the Holy
God, the Father, made His Son to become sin
for us...What a radical statement! What a radical

The phrase, 'he hath been made' is the active voice
in Greek. This means that the act is accomplished
by the subject of the verb, and that what was
accomplished, continues.

God is the subject, and what He accomplished
continues to radically change lives down through

How should we then live?
'Who his own self bare our sins in his own body
on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should
live unto righteousness...'

If we comprehend what God has accomplished for
us, we will live a changed life!
