For Us He Became Sin

“II Corinthians 5:21 informs us that Jesus became sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Jesus did not have to identify with mankind ― souls born into the nature of sin (Romans 5:12-14). Jesus was sinless; he was perfect, but for us he became sin, the righteous one for unrighteousness ones as he totally identified with man and literally tasted death for all (Hebrews 2:9). Jesus did this unselfishly because he loved you and me! We may now identify with him, yes we can ― we have been enabled to because of the love of God in us, which when applied will place us directly in Christ (II Corinthians 5:17).” ~LMJ~
