God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. – II Corinthians 5:21
The church today, as a whole, is focused on themselves–their sin, their problems, their lives.
When we focus on us, focus on what we are doing wrong, focus on what is going wrong in our lives, we are causing more of the same to come to us.
The more we focus on that sin, the harder it will be to overcome.
The more we focus on what is going wrong, the more will go wrong.
Our lives go in the direction of our focus.
Why don’t we try focusing on Jesus instead? Why don’t we focus on what He did at the Cross?
How He became sin for us? How God took the wrath and judgement for all our sins–past, present and future–out on Jesus, the sinless Son of God?
When we put our focus on God and believing that we are the righteousness of God in Christ, we begin to do right.
Once we change our focus, we will change what we believe. When we change what we believe, we change our lives.
