πŸ‘‘ The Maker Of All Made Sin For Us

It is thrilling to trace through the New Testament and find the word β€œmade,” and to observe how our Lord Jesus Christ, the great Creator of all, humbled Himself, died on Calvary’s cross and arose again from the dead to save, justify and glorify sinners.

St. Paul says of Christ: β€œAll things were created by Him and for Him” (Col. 1:16), and St. John adds by inspiration: β€œAll things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made… The world was made by Him” (John 1:3,10).

How wonderful it is, then, that He, the Creator of all, came to be one with us β€” yes, one of us! John tells us again that the Maker of all was β€œmade flesh” (John 1:14) and Paul declares that β€œwhen the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law…” (Gal. 4:4), that He β€œmade Himself of no reputation …and was made in the likeness of men” (Phil. 2:6,7). In his letter to the Hebrews he adds that Christ was β€œmade [for] a little [while] lower than the angels for the suffering of death” (Heb. 2:9). More than that, he declares that our Lord was β€œmade a curse for us” (Gal. 3:13) to redeem us from the curse of the law, and that God β€œmade Him to be sin for us…” (II Cor. 5:21).

Thus in one stroke, at Calvary , our Lord, the great Creator, bore the penalty for sin that would have sunk a world to hell, and for this β€œGod also hath highly exalted Him” (Phil. 2:9), having β€œraised him from the dead and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all…” (Eph. 1:20,21). β€œGod hath made that same Jesus… both Lord and Christ” (Acts 2:36) so that now He has been β€œmade higher than the heavens” (Heb. 7:26).

As a result the simplest believer in this mighty Savior is β€œmade… accepted in the Beloved One” (Eph. 1:6) and β€œmade [to] sit… in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Eph. 2:6). He is β€œmade the righteousness of God in Him” (II Cor. 5:21), β€œthat being justified by His grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life” (Titus 3:7). source
