jesus became sin for us

When Adam sinned, God did not curse man. He cursed the ground and He cursed man's labor, but He did not curse man. Genesis 3:17-19.

God did curse Jesus, who never sinned. "his body shall not remain all night on the tree, but you shall bury him the same day, for a hanged man is cursed by God." (Deuteronomy 21:23).

"Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree"— (Galatians 3:13).

Every day is a great day to worship our Savior who became cursed for us, became sin for us, as the substitute Lamb who shed His blood for us, so that He could redeem us.

Jesus is God and as God, He is supreme, omniscient, holy, all-powerful, infinite, eternal, righteous, loving, sovereign, gracious, truth, and so much more. He deserves worship! He deserves our devotion, our love, our submission. He deserves to be known, as far as He has revealed in scripture.

And yet, we make Him into a cosmic, butler, a boyfriend, a money machine, a put-upon uncle who is expected to forgive and never chastise. Do we know who God is? Below in a one-minute clip, RC Sproul deals harshly with a foolish question. Do we know who God is?




Know and love Jesus for who He is. We know Him through the scriptures.
