The Divine Exchange
"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
How did Jesus become sin when He had never sinned?
He received our sin!
How did we become righteous when we were born sinful?
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!
