"...My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" - Matthew 27 V46
"For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." - 2 Corinthians 5 V21
The greatest exchange on earth happened at the cross when God the Father forsook God the Son because the sin of the world was upon Him. He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us and God had to turn His face away from His Son at the cross. In turn the Son exchanged His righteousness to them that believe in Him. All our sins were forgiven at the foot of the cross and to them that believe and receive the free gift of salvation to them the Son of God offers His righteousness and eternal life. 'Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.' Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
