Weekly Devotion 1 - The Great Exchange

Updated: May 23, 2020

I will like to welcome you all to my website and my daily devotions. I am super excited to share with you my thoughts about specific topics and scriptures. These devotions are interactive so please share your thoughts or even give me topics that you would like for me to write about in the future.

The Great Exchange

Have you ever thought about your sin and how you were forgiven simply by repenting? Have you ever thought about how God continues to cover you? That's because God gave us Jesus in exchange for our sins.

2 Corinthians 5:11-21 passage talks about us being God's Ambassadors and how he had given Jesus to us (he's given us beauty) to replace our sin (ashes). I have paraphrased passage 2 Corinthians 5:11-19 below. Please read the passage in its entirety at the end of this devotion.

  • Our goal is to make our Father proud

  • It is for our benefit to bring glory to God

  • We do this by fulfilling our responsibility to bring others to Christ by sharing the good news

  • We believe that Christ died for us so that we can have new life

  • We also believe that our old life has died because of Christ sacrifice

  • This means that anyone who belongs to Christ is a new person

  • God has given us a task to help reconcile
