HE BECAME SIN FOR ME
“FOR HE (GOD) HATH MADE HIM (JESUS) TO BE SIN FOR US, WHO KNEW NO SIN; THAT WE MIGHT BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM.” — 2 Corinthians 5:21
The Bible verse above tells the story of what Jesus Christ has done for all people.
Let’s look at the simple plan of salvation found in God’s Word.
1. Salvation Comes From God
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE.” —John 3:16
Salvation comes NOT from man’s own efforts— it comes from God down to man as a gift.
Salvation is God’s gift:
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is THE GIFT OF GOD: not of works lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
2. Salvation Comes To All In Need
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” — Romans 3:23
All men are in need, because all have come short of God’s standard. We all need payment for our sin. “For he (God) hath made him (Jesus) to be sin for us...”
OUR NEED for a Savior is MET IN CHRIST.
3. Salvation Comes Through The Savior
The Bible reminds us over and over that through Jesus Christ we have eternal life.
HE DIED FOR OUR SINS:
“For he hath made him TO BE SIN for us...” — 2 Corinthians 5:21
“Who GAVE HIMSELF FOR OUR SINS that he might deliver us from the present evil world...” — Galatians 1:4
“..the son of God, who loved me, and GAVE HIMSELF FOR ME.” — Galatians 2:20
“.. CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS according to the scriptures.” — I Corinthians 15:3
4. Salvation Comes By Faith
“For by grace are ye Saved THROUGH FAITH...” — Ephesians 2:8
FAITH IS SIMPLY BELIEVING GOD.
Believing what God the Father said of his son:
“For he (God) hath made him (Jesus) to be sin for us...”
JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR US, AS OUR SUBSTITUTE:
“… who knew no sin...”
THE SINLESS SON OF GOD BECAME SIN FOR US:
“...that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
WEBECOMEACHILD OF GOD BY BELIEVING AND RECEIVING GOD’S SON AS OUR PERSONAL SAVIOR.
