9/20/12 Daily Devotion

2 Corinthians 5:21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

We know exactly how we feel when we have allowed something sinful to gain a foothold within our lives. It eats away at our souls, it plays havoc with our minds, and it tears at our hearts. We know exactly how we feel; now we need to understand how Christ felt. Placed upon Jesus, as He was placed upon the cross, were the sins of the world. As we experience sin, we become heavily burdened with its presence. Now imagine how Jesus felt carrying the sin of the world. What we feel is minute in comparison to that which He experienced, but He did so willingly because He loves us, because He wants us to stand in the presence of God and be found righteous. Jesus carried a heavy burden. Are we carrying the burden of the cross within our lives?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me come to understand exactly what You endured on the cross for me, and help this knowledge transform me.
