What great exchange has been wrought for us in Christ?
"For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God
in Him." 2 Cor. 5: 21.
Note - Said Luther: "Learn to know Christ and Him crucified. Learn to sing unto Him a new song---to
despair of yourself, and to say to Him: Thou' Lord Jesus Christ art my righteousness, and I am Thy sin.
Thou hast taken what was mine, and hast given me what was Thine; what Thou wast not Thou didst
become, in order that I might become what I was not."-D'Aubigne's "History of the Reformation," book 2,
Look upon Jesus, sinless is He;
Father, impute His life unto me.
My life of scarlet, my sin and woe,
Cover with His life whiter than snow.
Deep are the wounds transgression has made:
Red are the stains; my soul is afraid.
Oh, to be covered, Jesus, with Thee,
Safe from the law that now judgeth me
Longing the joy of pardon to know;
Jesus holds out a robe white as snow:
Lord, I accept it! leaving my own,
Gladly I wear Thy pure life alone."
Reconciled by His death for my sin,
justified by His life pure and clean,
sanctified by obeying His Word,
Glorified when returneth my Lord.
-F. E. Belden.
