FOR OUR SAKE PDF Print

For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”  2 Corinthians 5:21 ESV

“For our sake. . .” writes Paul.  All that Jesus accomplished upon the cruel cross was and is, for our sake!

I’ve often said, that our Christ, our Messiah, came – not that He might gain – but that we might gain.  Not for His sake but for ours.  That of course is not entirely accurate. 
As our Creator, our Lord has a vested interest in us.  As the psalmist sings, we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). We are created in the very image of God (Genesis 1:26,27) meaning that there is something within us that harkens back to our maker Himself.

So, it should not seem far-fetched, that our Lord, who is “the lover of our soul” should fashion Himself in the form of our redemption. 

“. . . who, though He was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.  And being found in human form, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”  Philippians 2:6-8 ESV

All for our sake – Perfection became putrid so that we might have peace!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

– Dale
