2 Corinthians 5:21
“For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
“But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.”
Thank you Jesus, for taking the punishment that we deserved for our sin. Thank you for living a righteous life and granting me your righteousness — the one the Father sees us with and can receive us. Help us to never think we deserve his acceptance for our good deeds.
