Exchange Divine

Today’s song brings to Light an interesting perspective regarding what Jesus did for us on Calvary’s Cross: An exchange … a Divine Exchange!

Jesus exchanged His blood for the possibility of our spiritual freedom. Sounds simple enough, huh?

Read the following passage from the Book of Matthew and put yourself in Jesus’ place:

Matthew 27:27-31,35 - "Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers. 28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. 29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! 30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head. 31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him. 35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots."

Jesus did NOTHING wrong. He lived a perfect, sinless life (an incredible, divine act in and of itself). Despite the fact He was innocent, He was found guilty, stripped in front of a band of soldiers, a crown of thorns was smashed onto His head; He was mocked, spit on, beaten, crucified … all for you and me!

Jesus willingly suffered and exchanged His blood for our sin!

It’s not enough to believe, you must receive (His Holy Spirit)! Understand that until one accepts the gift of salvation, they are still in their sin, separated from God. The possibility of spiritual freedom requires action. Jesus did His part, now you must do yours. In order to receive the gift of salvation, you must accept it.

Jesus gave all to give me (spiritual) life! He resurrects, He sanctifies, He takes His power and makes it mine. 

Hallelujah, grace is mine! Jesus took my place in Divine exchange. Simple for you and me.
