Everlasting Righteousness

The Apostle Paul writes in II Corinthians 5:21, “For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” As the eternal, divine Son of God, the Lord Jesus took on Himself the form of a servant and was made in the likeness of man. He came to us according to the Father’s will, delighting to add the human nature in a sinless, physical body.


However, the obedience of Christ as a man was just beginning. All throughout His time on Earth, the Lord Jesus perfectly obeyed the Father’s will and the commands in Scripture. Hebrews 5:8 says that He learned obedience through the things He suffered in His life. Christ’s obedience culminated with His death on the cross (Philip. 2:8). During those gruesome hours, the Lord Jesus Christ was made sin for us, taking our sins in His own body on the tree. The prophet Isaiah says that He was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities. Christ’s suffering on the cross for our sins cannot be compared or even fully understood, but it can be greatly loved and completely received.


Our Savior was crucified, laying down His life for His friends. But He powerfully took it up again. On the third day, He rose triumphantly from the grave and now sits at the right hand of God! Through faith and because we are in Him, His victory becomes our victory, and His resurrection ours.
