“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.”
King James Version (KJV)

I am so grateful and amazed for God's whole plan that Jesus died for my sin. Thank you Jesus.

The one thing which separates us, as Christians was sin, so in order to be in union with God, there was the need for an exchange for our sin so Jesus Christ exchanged the righteousness within him in oder for us to be made worthy children of God

He knew no sin means he was without sin..the only sacrifice god would accept..

It is sad some preach Jesus became sin, as in a sinner and rejected by God because of that sin and had to be born again in hell.

Our righteousness were like filthy rags. There was nothing we could do to make ourselves holy. Thank God Jesus took our place and did the work for us. It is through his substitutionary work that we have become the righteousness of God through him.

For one to understand this mystery needs a revelation the exchange that took place at calvary The moment you realise that you are the righteousness of God it puts you above situations in life and you begin to walk in this newness of life you wouldn't want to go back and pick your sins and live in sin again Amen

The Son of God became a sin-offering that through incorporation into Christ we become right with God the Father.
Jesus did not become sin or a sinner.
The brother of Jesus says: "He who knows to do good and doesn't do it, sins." That's not Jesus on the cross who came to do the will of the Father.
The sin-offering doesn't become sin or a sinner.
"The life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves, on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one's life." Lev 17:11
The blood of the cross (Col 1:20) that Christ shed cleanses us of our sins (1 John 1:9) bearing away our sins (1 Pet 2:24) and therefore the sin-separation between us and God is removed (Isa 59:2) and we become "at-one" with God in union with Christ through the indwelling of the Holy Ghost.
The wrath of an angry God was not poured out on Christ on the cross. God was in Christ reconciling (at-one-ment) the world to Himself (2 Cor 5:19).
