There is an astonishing, shocking, scandalous, puzzling and dramatic claim made by the Apostle Paul in the book of 2 Corinthians! The reason that we have access to a new spiritual life and can become a new creation is the fact that Jesus Christ didn’t just take our place on the cross or just carried our sins to the cross…
God MADE Jesus Christ OUR SIN. He made Him TO BE OUR SIN.
That’s an amazing, powerful statement! Have you ever heard that claim before?
It's one which Dr. Thomas Q. Robbins, our Wesleyan teacher, explores in this Bible study based on a passage of scripture found in the fifth chapter of Second Corinthians, verses 16-21. In this passage, Paul give us the reason we have access to a new spiritual life and can become a new creation. It’s the fact that God MADE Jesus Christ OUR SIN so those who believe in what He did for us and obey his plan for their life will be reconciled to God and become new creatures. The blood of Jesus Christ has covered our sin and those who believe have become His righteousness and are children of God. Dr. Thomas Q. Robbins has names this Bible study, “WHO ARE YOU?
It’s possible that this study will make you more keenly aware of how much God loves you and what Jesus Christ has done for all mankind. We can never understand it in this life but we can become more aware of his act of live and the manner in which God can be just and merciful. Anyone – the term we use us is whosoever will - who believes that he died for us and became sin has the give of becoming a new creation having new spiritual life. It’s our prayer that you have become His righteousness. Who are you? Make Jesus – the Christ of your life. It is grace that makes this possible for you to do. It is faith that seals the relationship. It is obedience and service that lives it out in reality. Who are you? Are you God’s righteousness?
