“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.” II Cor. 5:21
Many years ago while working on one of my customers house, a man came walking up the alley and came to me holding a $50.00 bill. He said it would be worth it to him to give me that money if I would go down to his house and put a couple nails in his loose aluminum fascia. So I grabbed my ladder and walked down a few houses and climbed up and nailed his trim in place. The whole ordeal probably took about five minutes. When he saw how fast I did it I could tell he had a change of mind and wished he wouldn’t have offered me so much money. So when he hinted to me about taking less I did. Well I said that to say that we have one who has given us a much better deal. Our God has offered us a deal in which He will take our sins and give us in return, His righteousness. This is the best deal in all the universe. On top of that, he has not changed His mind for 2000 years. Hallelujah!
