2 Corinthians 5:21 says “For He (God) has made Him (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Christ.”
“We The Body of Christ,” so many Christians do not actually what this statement means. They hear the preacher declare it on Sunday morning, they read it in their Bibles during there devotions, and they may think to themselves, “that sounds nice.” However many times believers don’t actually know what it actually means to be part of the body of Christ. 1Corianthians 12:22 says, “Now you are the body of Christ and members in particular.” Ephesians 1:22 talks about how Father God has put all things under the feet of Jesus and “gave Him to be the HEAD over all things to the church which is His body, the fullness of Him that fills all in all.” What does all this mean? Basically, Jesus is the head of the Church and we are His body. Now consider your own body, every member of your body would be useless without your head calling the shots. In turn, the head would not be able to do anything without the body. You can not separate the head from the body. They are one! Same is true spiritually. Jesus and His body are one. So everything Jesus is you are if you are in Christ. Everything! His righteousness became your righteousness when you accepted Him as your personal Lord and savior. I was made His righteousness. It’s who I am now. My true identity. When we start to think about it this way, it changes how we deal with dad to day situations and even struggles. I am not trudging through life struggling, barely getting along. Looking forward to the day when all trouble and temptation shall cease when I get to Heaven. No! Father God has for his sons and daughters to live a victorious blessed life here and now – today! Don’t think of your self as low life sinner. You are joined to Christ and He has given you His righteousness. Period. Remember 2Corinthians 5:21, “For He (God) has made Him (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Christ.” You are the Body of Christ, one with Christ, raised with Christ, seated with Christ, reigning with Christ. Glory to God!
