Christ was made to be sin, so we can be made righteous.



Do you see it?  
 Christ was made to be sin, so that we can be made righteous.  This is the great gift we are to lay ahold of.  Eternal Life.  The eternal life of God is now ours, for we have been given eternal life and made right with God.

2 Cor. 5:21 in the NIV
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Do you see this?  God made Jesus to be sin for us, so we might be become the righteousness of God.

2 Cor. 8:9 in the NIV.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

Do you see this?  Christ, who was rich, became poor, so that we, through his poverty might become rich.

And this is specifically talking about financial issues.  It is in the context of an offering, a financial offering. 

The bible promises, as we give, we become partners in faith, joint heirs with the plan of the gift of all God is, and just one little part of that life of God is becoming like Jesus was in heaven, through his sacrifice on earth.

Jesus, who was rich in heaven, became poor, so that we can become like he was and now is in heaven.

Salvation, is a gift, with attendant blessings. Just one is being made rich.  It is an inheritance.  Don’t get mad at someone who was made rich.  It was a gift.
