Christ is Risen

2 Corinthians 5:21

"He made him who knew no sin to be sin for our behalf so that we may become the righteousness of God"

Jesus Christ who knew no sin was made sin in the sense that all the sin of mankind was laid upon Jesus at the cross.

When we repent of our sin (Turn away from sin) and embrace Jesus as Lord and master of our lives believing that God raised Jesus from the dead (Romans 10:9-11) then Christs righteousness is laid to our account and he see's the righteousness of Christ on the cross.

We have all broken Gods laws (Romans 3:23) and the payment for our sins is death (Spiritual and physical Romans 6:23)

But God offers us forgivness of our sins and offers us a way to ecscape by repenting and turning from our sin and embracing Jesus as Lord and Master.

As an analogy imagine you were in court and had broken a law that would cost 5,000 dollars or 5 years in jail. You do not have the money and are being taken to jail when suddenly someone stands up and pays your fine.

Because the debat has been paid you are free to go.
We have all sinned and all stand guilty before the God of the universe but We are told for those who truly repent of their sin and confess that Jesus was raised physically from the dead (Romans 10:9-11) then when you do that your debt has been paid and now you are no longer a child of wrath (Ephesians 2) and are now a child of God (John 3). 1 John 2 tells us one way to know if we are truly sons of God is by our obedience to his word and our love for him. We are told when we do sin that if we confess it and turn from it that Christ will forgive us.

We will all die one day and stand before the judge of the universe and so this Easter I pleasd with you that if you do not know Christ as Lord and Master then flee from sin and Run to the cross.

Anyone wanting more information can feel free to email me.

God Bless
