Unlimited: Jesus Took My Place

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Corinthians 5:17, NIV).
What is the cure for guilt’s alienation and sin’s compulsion? How can a person be reconciled to God? The good news for today, the good news unlimited – is that the confession of the real problem can result in an immediate discovery of healing.
The Scripture says, One “has died for all, therefore, all have died. And if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation for the old has passed away and behold the new is come. All this is from God who through Christ reconciled us to Himself. For our sake, He (God) made Him (Christ) to be sin who knew no sin so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Cor 5:21.
The Gospel is not good advice. It’s good news – good news unlimited. The gospel is the good news that in God’s sight sin has been made an end of and everlasting righteousness has been brought in for you, for me.
Though the news seems too good to be true, it is not. “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son”, so that you, by believing in Him should never perish but have everlasting life. This is good news, it’s true news, and it’s for you. – Des Ford (adapted)
