The Son Of God Made To Be Sin
“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.”
(2 Corinthians 5:21)
What a glorious truth to learn that the very Son of God on behalf of His people settled the matter of sin and righteousness upon the cross. So absolute is the work of imputation, (the sinner’s sin to Him and Christ’s righteousness to the sinner), that ALL whom Christ redeemed have ALL together been already pronounced righteous by the Eternal Judge, Ephesians 2:5,6.
There is no sin laid to their charge because it was all laid to His, Isaiah 53:5-6. There is complete righteousness before God’s law because He worked it out and the Father has imputed it to their account.
Sin was not infused in Christ, but rather charged to His account. The same is true with regard to the imputation of His righteousness. It is not infused into the sinner, but charged to his account, whereby God declares such a one righteous before Him. All for whom the Son of God was made sin, will in time be made to see that their sin put Him to death, but glorious thought, His righteousness was made to be theirs also, by grace alone.
