Best Blogs: Lopsided



“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him
we might become the righteousness of God.”
~II Corinthians 5:21

Soul Snacks: What an amazing exchange that took place when Jesus hung on the cross as the sacrifice for sin!

Jesus became sin so that I could become saved.

Jesus was abandoned and I was embraced.

Jesus received God’s wrath and I received God’s righteousness.

Jesus got what he didn’t deserve and I got what I didn’t deserve.

Jesus didn’t get what he deserved and I didn’t get what I did deserve.

Jesus went through hell so that I could go to heaven.

Jesus endured hatred and I was showered with love.

Jesus died so that I could live.

Redemption is such a lopsided transaction, but such is the love of God. I got the far better deal in this exchange, and for that I will never cease to be grateful.

P.S. “At the heart of the story stands the cross of Christ where evil did its worst and met its match.”  _John W. Wenham
