6-5-13 (6 of 7)

As you have confessed, I have taken your sins into My body. It is as if you have placed them in a whirlpool and they have flushed down and out of your life as the water swirled. But in this exchange you have received more than you have understood.  You have received My righteousness, not only forgiveness for your sins, but I have imparted to you My standing with the Father.  The Water that flushed you clean, I have also given you to drink. In this I am committing to you the WORD of reconciliation and an understanding in your heart, that old things have passed away. You will now behold that new things have come. Not just in your mind and imagination, but in your belly and reality. I am opening your eyes to see My love and to feel My love for you and you will begin to live now, compelled by this love that I reveal to you. ~Jesus

2 Corinthians 5: 14-15 For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died;  and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.

2 Corinthians 5: 17-19Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.  Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
