Would You Trade Places?
By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, – Hebrews 11:17
Abraham was willing to give us his own son for God. And later on, we see God giving up His only begotten Son for us…to save us from a life of bondage to sin on Earth and to save us from Hell.
Jesus literally traded places with us. He became us–full of sin, sickness and disease–and we became Him–righteous and perfect in God’s sight.
What kind of God does that for His creation?
