Wonder of Wonders

“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.”
(2nd Corinthians 5:21)

O, what a remembrance was this! He was made sin for us, Who knew no sin that we might have a complete salvation: in Him, He makes us the righteousness of God: in Him.

What a wonder of wonders! For if He had merely put away sin, if He had only been the destruction of sin, taken our offences away and left it there, what an astonishing display of loving-kindness and mercy would that have been! But He has not only put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself and been the destruction of it but, O for a tongue to speak it forth! He hath given His life a ransom for sinners to bring them to God; He hath fulfilled all the requirements of law and justice for them; He hath arrayed them in the majesty and glory of His righteousness and they stand complete in Him.
