God is Holy. He cannot bear to look at sin. If any of us had one single sin that wasn’t covered by the blood of Jesus, we could not stand before God. Jesus, the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world, is our Savior. By faith, we receive Jesus into our hearts as Lord and Savior, receiving forgiveness for our sins and eternal life in Heaven.
This is the divine exchange that had to take place for mankind to be redeemed. Jesus, Son of God and perfect man that never sinned, gave his holy blood as he suffered and died with all our sins placed on his account. When the entire punishment for all sins of the entire world, past, present, and future, was inflicted on our Lord Jesus, He dismissed His spirit and died. He rose again in three days victorious over death. The exchange: He took our sins and gave us His righteousness, and more.
Jesus provided more than His righteousness by His sacrifice on the cross. The scripture says that by His stripes we are healed, so we have healing because of his death and resurrection. We also have redemption, justification, sanctification, forgiveness, and eternal life. There is much to appreciate and praise God for in our wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ.
