Message of the Day: We are Forgiven through the Death of Christ
“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 5:21, NKJV)
Before Paul became a Christian, he had judged Jesus by the standard of ordinary person of the world, and in so doing had judged him wrongly. Now he no longer judges Jesus, or anyone else, from merely human standpoint, because in Christ he sees everything in a new light. Old attitudes go and new attitudes replace them.
This changing from old to the new is done by God through Jesus Christ. It is part of the total work that God does as he reconciles people to himself, and turns sinners into friends. Having reconciled them, God then sends them out to preach the message of reconciliation to others, so that other sinners might be brought to God. The basis of this message is the death of Christ. Through the judgment of sin in Christ, God is able to forgive repentant sinners and give them a righteous standing before him.
