2 Corinthians 5:21
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
By Jesus becoming sin for us we have become the righteousness of God, we now have right standing with Him. This right standing is what gives you the right to all that Jesus Christ has purchased for you. Many times I have asked people when sharing the Word of God if they were working on becoming right with God to raise their hand. Hands always go up when you ask this question.
I would then tell them they are trying to do something that is impossible, for if you could make yourself right with God you would not have needed Jesus to come and give you His righteousness. This is what hinders many from receiving what God has for them because they don’t think they are right with God. But if you are born again, you are as right with God as Jesus Himself.
He became sin so that we could become righteous. He took our sin and He gave us the free gift of righteousness. Once born again we are as right with God as we will ever be, for our spirit man has been made new. We are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. Walk in your rightful place with God by acknowledging who you are, what you have, and what you can do in Christ Jesus.
