The Divine Exchange

Mitch Cariaga

"But you know that He appeared so that He might take away our sins.  And in Him is no sin."  I John 3:5

"For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God."  I Peter 3:18

Question:
How did Jesus become sin when He had never sinned?
Answer:
He received our sin!

Question:
How did we become righteous when we were born sinful?
Answer:
We received Jesus’ righteousness.

God gave our sin to Jesus and Jesus’ righteousness to us.

Among Bible scholars, this is known as The Divine Exchange!!!

From the point of view of a businessman, it doesn’t seem like a good deal.  From the point of view of a stock trader, I wouldn’t take that trade.

But still, God made The Divine Exchange!
