What a great passage
for the podcast before Christmas.
"He made Him who knew
no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the
righteousness of God in Him." 2 Corinthians 5:21 NASB
Our righteousness is
sealed when we choose to follow Jesus. How we work that out is
still up to us. Jesus's part is complete. He knew no sin. Yet God
made him to be sin on our behalf. Christ had the idea, and
he took the penalty for our sin before we knew we needed it and
without our even asking. And he did that "so that we might become
the righteousness of God in Him."
When this originally
airs, it's the Friday before Christmas 2022. The baby we're
celebrating this weekend is the king of the universe. He will die
for our sins. And he will make us reconcilers and ambassadors in
the world. God has a job for you. As you do that job, you receive
joy. God provides. Let's trust him and rely on him and walk in the
joy he provides the rest of this year and the rest of our earthly
lives. You're an ambassador of King Jesus. How will you live?
