2 Corinthians 5:21. God made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in him we would become the righteousness of God.

Jesus was and is righteous. God made Him to be sin for us so through Jesus we could be made righteous. We of ourselves are not righteous. We are sinners. Jesus knew no sin but in obedience to the Father and in love for us agreed to take on Himself what He never experienced so that we who are very experienced at sin could be counted as if we are righteous. Our question is do we make room for His righteousness in us by confessing our sins? Let us do what I call spiritual breathing; exhale sin through confession and inhale His righteousness.
