The Divine Exchange


A Proclamation

Jesus was punished,

that we might be forgiven.1

Jesus was wounded,

that we might be healed.2

Jesus was made sin with our sinfulness,

that we might be made righteous with His righteousness.3

Jesus died our death,

that we might receive His life.4

Jesus was made a curse,

that we might enter into a blessing.5

Jesus endured our poverty,

that we might share His abundance.6

Jesus bore our shame,

that we might share His glory.7

Jesus endured our rejection,

that we might have His acceptance with the Father.8

Jesus was cut off by death,

that we might be joined to God eternally.9

Our old man was put to death in Him,

that the new man might come to life in us.10

 Amen and Amen and Amen!
