The Great Exchange

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Romans 5:11. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

The original Greek word that our word “reconcile” comes from actually means “exchange.” That is what Jesus Christ, the Word of God and God’s Son did. He exchanged places with us and took the place of our death from sin and gave us His righteousness. That continues to blow my mind. It’s hard to understand such love as this. There is no way to thank Him enough for what He did and the horrible price He paid for such a loving exchange. Without this exchange there would be nothing in our future for our future would be blackness from our sin. Our question is how often do we thank Him?
