He had no sin and yet took on my sin.
He took on my punishment - my death.
It should have been me on that cross.
It wouldn’t have been enough.
My heart was wicked, my flesh sinful.
His heart was beautiful, pure, and spotless.
He was without sin.
He was God incarnate.
Only He could save me.
His sinless, pure heart was needed.
Only He could take my wicked heart and give me a new heart, a clean heart, one that is pure, righteous and holy.
Now written on my heart is His ways, His words, His love!
He put His Spirit inside me! His very SPIRIT LIVING in side ME!
Because of HIM
My heart is new, longer a slave to sin.
I gladly live as a slave, a bond servant to righteousness, His righteousness.
He who knew no sin became sin for me so that I can live in righteousness
He now sees me as righteous and without sin.
