II Corinthians 5:21 ” He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

Our Savior’s obedience to His Father wasn’t out of sympathy for us. Jesus became a sin offering that we might have a right standing with God, not because He felt sorry for our wretched human race. No, Jesus knew the only way we could come to the Father was by Him going to the Cross… for nothing we could do would ever make us acceptable to God…only Jesus death.
